SXSW 2015 | Ultimate Playlist

sxsw

It’s a rainy Sunday in Seattle so, naturally,  I’m picking the raisins out of my leftover hiking granola and making every excuse not to go outside. Luckily I’ve been able to bide my time pretty effectively because SXSW started on Friday and I had a lot of music to dive into.

South by Southwest is a festival that happens every year in March in Austin, Texas. It plays host to music, film, and interactive components giving festival goers the opportunity to experience hundreds of artists and experts from all over the world. It’s the gateway to festival season and a festival that is (and has been) on my to-do list for ASAP.

For the last two years when SXSW has rolled around I’ve scoped out their artist lineup and found SO many new bands to obsess about (and to stalk tour schedules for when they’ll hit the city I’m in). This year…I may have gone a little crazy with my playlist, but I couldn’t help myself because there were SO many good musicians on the roster.

I present to you my Ultimate SXSW 2015 playlist–I literally scoured every genre and alphabetized breakdown list of who was performing which resulted in nearly 20 hours of music. Oops?

Live vicariously through this playlist with me! (Even if it doesn’t come with food trucks dishing out aromatic BBQ or tacos.)

When We Were Young | Monday Playlist

savewhenwewereyoung2

Mondays are a test of positivity, patience and perseverance. They can take us down winding, frustrating paths we never deemed a possibility, and they can also simply (and ruthlessly) just take us down.

No matter how your Monday was I hope that you were able to push through to the other side. To help you make it through the last few bits of it, I’ve mixed up an old school playlist to kick the bad moods to the curb. Get yourself to a patio with your favorite drink (whether cocktail or coke) and pump up these jams. There is no way you’ll still be having a bad day afterwards, I can almost promise you.

I’ve got so many photos from my camping trip this weekend and news about upcoming travels as well!

 

Speak to you soon!
