Chelsea and I love music and are always out in the city checking out shows. Portugal. the Man is one of our favorites so of course we were not going to miss the chance to see them play at a small venue (the Mezzanine) in San Francisco. On top of Portugal. the Man, three other fantastic bands played as well. Churches, the NONONO, and the Colourist were the other acts of the night and the house was packed.
First to play were the Colourist! Check out some of their songs here (my favorite is Yes Yes)
Next up was the NONONO who sang her heart out.
CHVRCHES were incredible. I love the song “Recover”!
Making ourselves cozy in the top layer booths.
Portugal. the Man closed the night and killed it!

It’s Summer and that always means one thing, weddings. Brittany recently got some great dresses from Charlotte Russe and thought they would be great to wear at some upcoming weddings. I couldn’t agree more!
(Dress from Charlotte Russe)
(Blue and tan are great wedding colors, pretty much color but white and black)
(The zipper details is one of my favorite parts of the dress)
(A bold nail color adds to the Summer feel)
(Open toed shoes are a must at warm weddings)
(We opted for no necklace, instead a geometric earring)
We love dressing up for any occasion but weddings are the most fun, just make sure you put something on that you can dance in!

There’s in fact nothing funny about the real happenings at Pompeii but as Chelsea said in yesterday’s post, the tune was crushing the airwaves in Europe while we were there. After Chelsea headed back to the state, I actually had the chance to see Bastille and photograph their live show in Holland! I’d never seen them before and LOVED their live show. So much energy and a tent full of pulsing Europeans. It was a recipe for a good time and I enjoyed it immensely. Check out this up and coming band that will be sure to blow your socks off if you catch them on tour this year.
(Their stage set up and people piling in)
I didn’t know many of their songs besides Pompeii before I saw Bastille live but now can say I’m a huge fan of their entire album, Bad Blood. I’ve seen a lot of bands and Bastille brought non-stop energy and good tunes. Check them out!

Portugal. The Man has been one of my favorite bands for the past five years. And since moving back home to San Francisco two and a half years ago I have been able to see them play live three times. Each time better than the last and this past Friday’s show at the Independent was no exception. This show had these floating orbs that changed colors, which added a little flare I have never seen before. Check out the pics.
(Once the orbs changed to a solid color, so did the entire room)
(The Independent is a tiny venue, holding about 400 people. It feels like you are part of the band)
(If he took another step, he’d be in the crowd)
Check out a little snippet of the show. If you haven’t heard of them yet, you soon will. Their new album is due out June 4 and is produced by Danger Mouse.
