I can’t believe it. I swear I was pining for summer not too long ago.
Lovin this mix by Astronautica for HW&W. Basically a dope mix of that ever evolving summer playlist mixed with some new gems to keep ya head noddin.
I’m terrible at blogging but here’s an update.
Last week, I saw Sergio Mendes at the Hollywood Bowl! He was seriously amazing. I like to refer to him as one of the Godfathers of my musical soul.
Upcoming events that I will be attending:
These two at Rose Bowl on Sunday. Need I say more?
Mad excited to see Melbourne-based, neo-soul band Hiatus Kaiyote at the Bootleg Theater.
Jose James for the FIGat7th Downtown Festival. FREE. Tickets here.
This lineup got me hyped forreal! I’m excited to see Disclosure, TNGHT, Baauer (missed him at Coachella wah), Flying Lotus, Breakbot (last year he wasn’t as funky but I have faith), Floss, Justice, and everyone else. Wish Bondax was comin thru, I was really looking forward to seein the two chaps live.

One of my favorite songs of all time. ALL TIME. An amazing arrangement with effortless vocals. The sensual organ. The shuffling drums. The flirty strings. The faint guitar. The punchy horns that get funky later. The silk-laced falsetto. And all that emotion in the lyrics.
Wonder-FULL is back! Don’t wait in line (made that mistake last year) and cop your tickets now while they’re still $9 ($12 total inc. fees). Tickets will sell out, the line will be long, and your feet will not stop grooving! So excited for this and DJ Spinna is one of my top 5 DJs for sure.
