Van She - Changes [MP3 + Download]

Van She is one of many bands that I didn't start listening to until a few years after they reached the peak of their popularity. I almost loafed. If it wasn't for me checking samples on Crystal Castles' first album, I probably would've never found em. Funny how samples work. It turns out that Crystal Castles sampled Van She on one of my favorite songs of theirs, Vanished. [Get it...Van She...Vanished?...alright.] You have to listen closely to get the sample, but it's there.

Anyway, the point of all this is to show you the song Changes which is my favorite track off of Van She's debut album V. It even has a little bit of a Phoenix-y sound around the hook. Check it out.

Also check out the song that started it all, Sex City.

Oh man.

Trillectro Is Coming.

What is Trillectro?

By now, you should definitely know but just in case you don't, I'll let Modi, Quinn and Marcel tell you:

"the first music festival in the district of its kind, trillectro is our way of bridging the gap between hip-hop and electronic music. on august 11, 2012, trillectro will unite music enthusiasts at DC's brand new HALF STREET FAIRGROUNDS (outside nationals park! GO NATS!) for an unforgettable day of incredible performances from some of the best emerging local and national artists.

modeled after brooklyn's dekalb market, this unique and spacious venue reuses salvaged shipping containers to surround a main stage, bar areas, tents and gaming space for a dynamic retail and entertainment experience. trillectro will be the first event of this size and nature to take place at the HALF STREET FAIRGROUNDS."

Here's a fly-through look at the venue: Half Street Fairgrounds

With all that being said, take that trip down/over/up to DC this weekend and make this happen.

All of our lives suck. This is proof.

Beer Olympics. Possibly My Best Decision Ever.

This past weekend I took part in arguably the greatest event of my life: The 2012 Arlington [VA] Beer Olympics.

I represented with @BolicKB, @DougCrooze and Young MJ as Team Great Britain. We entered the contest with high hopes and ended up bringing home the Gold. Pictures of [most of] the events follow, however they pretty much end at Event Three....because of all the beer.

I'm definitely running this event back, even if the actual Olympics are over.
