we had a little surprise show over in building 543 today! the swedish indie-folk band first aid kit stopped by our headquarters for a free set at noon today, giving us a nice little treat for the ears during our lunch break. i wasn’t too familiar with this band before but they sounded great – both girls have really lovely voices.  here are some photos from the show that just took place – they’re also playing at johnny brenda’s tonight if you’re in philly :)

I hope, for your sake, they played "In the Morning."

Post image for pink hair for hope

as you guys probably know, october is breast cancer awareness month.  i wanted to share a cool thing you can do to support the cause, called pink hair for hope.  through the month of october, participating salons will put a pink hair extension in your hair for $10, with all proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. this is such a great idea and a fun way to raise awareness! i think i’m going to have to re-dye the ends of my hair to be pink again :)

for more info click here.

Cat horn -Oct 13, 2010, 9:55AM
I want to find a place in Philly that is participating in this. What a great way to show support.
Amanda -Oct 11, 2010, 1:16AM
I agree with vero. Where is the info to tell us where to get the pink extensions at?

hardly strictly

Post image for hardly strictly

hardly strictly bluegrass starts today in san francisco!

with one exception – radiohead’s show at outside lands (first ever nighttime show in golden gate park) – this was the most fun i had when i lived in san francisco. the festival takes place each fall in golden gate park, and consists of three days of live music – FOR FREE. those of you who haven’t been to san fran, october is probably the nicest month out there weather wise and there’s really nothing better than spending a weekend lounging on blankets in spectacular golden gate park with a bunch of friends listening to the plucking of guitar strings. this year’s lineup is sick – including t. bone burnett w/ a special appearance by karen elson, jenny and johnny, steve earle, conor oberst, joan baez, trombone shorty, umphrey’s mcgee, the felice brothers, sharon jones and the dap kings, yonder mountain string band, the avett brothers, railroad earth, elvis costello, patti smith, emmylou harris, and many more.

did i mention its FREE??? check out the website here.

I have never been until this year, and I plan to go every year now. I didn't realize how big it was and for something that's free, it's pretty spectacular. It's an overall good time with good people and good music!
