September ’17: the Month of Music, Music and More Music

I could probably go on and on about most of the artists I saw live last month, or I can’t because I’m no ~ music critic ~ but I’ll describe each show in 3 words:

Future Islands @ The Greek Theatre (09.19.17)

The first time I saw Future Islands live was at FYF fest in 2014 I believe, and I had never heard of them before that moment. But I instantly really enjoyed watching them live! Since then I’ve seen them once more time before September at The Greek.

The Future Islands show was: fun, exuberant, happy.

Harry Styles @ The Greek Theatre (09.20.17)

I could write a novel about how beautiful I find Harry Styles but you probably don’t want to hear all that. Anyway, Harry’s debut album was ~ actually ~ pretty great, and I enjoyed it more so live.

The Harry Styles show was: beautiful, loud, crying. 

(Special s/o to the best gal ever, Lauren, for inviting me to this!)

Beach House @ The Santa Ana Observatory (09.22.17)

There are few voices I’ll never get tired of hearing, and Victoria Legrand’s from Beach House is one of them. I saw them live for the first time at Vicar Street in Dublin, Ireland. It was a magical experience.

The Beach House show was: celestial, heavy, sweet.

Kali Uchis @ The Fonda Theatre (09.28.17)

So, I wasn’t new to who Kali Uchis was but I was new to her music! I had never listened to any of her songs before, except for the Daniel Cesar song “Get You.” Again, my friend Lauren invited me out to see her at The Fonda theatre and I’m so glad I went!

The Kali Uchis show was: badass, lit (yes, lit), powerful.

The xx @ The Forum (09.29.17)

This was probably the one show I had been looking forward to the most! I love The xx and their sound is so amazing and unique.

Romy, Jamie, and Oliver of the xx were so humble, kind, and charming. It made me love the whole show even more.

The xx show was: emotional, colorful (just look at the lights!), warm.

Interpol @ Los Angeles Historic Park (9.30.2017) (Photo by my friend Jen, who was closer to the lovely Paul Banks)

This was my 3rd time watching Interpol live, and I swear I can never get enough.

Interpol @ Los Angeles Historic Park (9.30.2017)

They were performing Turn on the Bright Lights in its entirety for the 15th anniversary of the album. It was the last show of September, and the perfect way to close a fun month.

Staring at Paul Banks for over an hour is also the perfect way to end anything, really. He is such a babe.

The Interpol show was: dreamy, packed, kickass. 

Thx for reading!
