Playlists Based Off My Summer Reads

Sadly summer is drawing to a close. I’m packing up all my things and getting ready to move into a new house in Athens. I’m really excited about starting back to school again this August, but I’m even more excited to finally get to see all my friends again!

The only way I manage to make it through the three hour drive from Asheville to Athens is either listening to music or podcasts. Luckily I’ve made three in anticipation of next week’s travels, and they’re all based off books I read this summer.

To check out each playlist, click on the title of each book and you’ll be linked directly to my playlist on Spotify.

What are your favorite songs of the summer? Have you read anything good?

A Playlist for the Week

As some of my more recent followers know, the band my dad plays in performed this Saturday. They’re called The Procrastinators. My dad plays drums, and occasionally can keep the rhythm straight (haha kidding, he’s a great percussionist).

I love coming to their concerts and watching them play! This week’s playlist is inspired by Saturday’s set lists.

Twenty One Pilots Concert

Hello everyone! Me here. Just another weekly playlist that’s entirely not a playlist! Aren’t those the best? (don’t answer that…)

Anyways, let’s get right on down to business! Waaaaay back when, on August 6th, I saw Twenty One Pilots on their Emotional Roadshow tour. Social media, aka tumblr fangirls, claim the show to be “existential.” And while I do have a tumblr, I am not a fangirl. But I will say that they hit the nail on the head with this one. I’ve never been to a show where the singer crowd surfs in the equivalent of a human hamster ball, or one where the magic acts are commonplace.

These two could join the US Olympic gymnastics team given the amount of back flips I saw that Saturday night, not to mention the impressive flip off the piano. The physicality of the show is something I would’ve seen bands do in smaller venues. In the Infinity Arena in Duluth the impressive light displays and the audience of thousands the venue seems massive, but the touches of tumbling and aerobatics from Josh and Tyler the show became more personal.

Some of my favorite songs from the concert? None other than Migraine, Car Radio, Trees, The Judge, Heathens, Stressed Out, Hometown, and House of Gold.
