hey music lovers! I hope you’re all having the best weekend! I know I am. My friend and I are driving through Georgia on our way to see the glorious Benjamjn Gibbard/Death Cab serenade us in Atlanta tomorrow night! I can’t wait to post all about it! Stay tuned… 🎶
I don’t know about you, but I had always been hesitant about going to a concert alone. I mean, I’d wondered Lollapalooza solo before..but that’s not quite the same.
