True Care Tour: Until Next Time, ‘Morrow.

Last week, I was fortunate to see James Vincent McMorrow live for the first time. For those who may not know who he is (like my brother who asked me who the hell is that when I sent him a clip from the concert haha) he is a singer, an amazing singer, from Ireland. He… Continue reading True Care Tour: Until Next Time, ‘Morrow.

Everybody’s Tour… Literally.

Live Nation sent an e-mail to my inbox with a presale code because I go to so many concerts. That was May. The show was just about a week ago– July 18, 2017. Everyone was like you saw Logic already! Why are you spending money to go again? I said, I saw him as part… Continue reading Everybody’s Tour… Literally.

Illuminate World Tour: One of Those (Amazing) Nights.

See what I did there with the title? I used one of Shawn Mendes’s songs to describe that night. It was one of those nights that you never forget, and that you don’t want to stop living in. The concert was on July 15th at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. That date had… Continue reading Illuminate World Tour: One of Those (Amazing) Nights.

I… Continue reading Why I Stopped Listening to Alicia Keys

The Endless Summer Tour!

Saturday night, I spent five hours at the Ak-Chin Pavillion standing, dancing, screaming, singing, jumping, thirsty, sweating, and having a phenomenal night.   I haven't been to the Ak-Chin Pavillion since July 11, 2008 when it was still called the Cricket Wireless Pavillion. Eight years ago I went with my old best friend to see… Continue reading The Endless Summer Tour!

The Weekends (Snippet 1)

“Hey.”I said walking in the door after school. “Why are there boxes all over the place?” I was so confused. I hated not knowing things. I had no idea what was going on and was hoping my dad would fill me in. “It’s my stuff.”My dad said. “Mom finally convinced you to take all your… Continue reading The Weekends (Snippet 1)
