If you couldn’t guess from the title of this post… today is going to be really random.
Last night, Kellie and I went to see Capital Cities and Fitz and the Tantrums at our school’s auditorium!
Both bands were really good. They had amazing stage sets and were super energetic, even though the audience was kind of blah. I was trying to send my energy up to the front from the back row, but even if the crowd wasn’t lively the bands were still great to watch.
I can always appreciate when they are true to album sound, which both were. At the end of Capital Cities’ set, they played “Safe and Sound” on track (after already playing it once) in an EDM mix so that they could get everyone dancing. They also danced on stage! It was really different and fun.
Fitz and the Tantrums are extremely talented. They do a lot of harmony stuff, and the two singers’ unique voices fit together well. They also had an amazing sax player! Capital Cities also had a really talented trumpet player. I was so impressed! They were rockin’.
In other news, you NEED to check out this blog post from Elite Oiselle runner Lauren Fleshman (who I wouldn’t know about if not for my lovely friend Melissa. Hi Melissa!).
We need more women like her in the world. Seriously. In the midst of the holiday weight gain frenzy and the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show coming up, maybe you’re feeling less than stellar about your bod.
Well, guess what? All that pressure to be perfect is BS. Lauren proves that even the most athletic people have their “flaws,” and those flaws are beautiful. This holiday season, love yourself!
And finally, I put together a nice little legs and butt workout that I have been doing have the gym lately. It’s a quick one, but I always feel it. All you need is a kettlebell, 15-25 pounds, depending on what works for you!
Question of the Day:
Do you listen to either of the bands I saw last night?
What do you think of Lauren Fleshman’s post?
