I spent Memorial Weekend in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania attending the wedding of a friend/in-law/coworker, at a rustic barn in the hills. The wedding was pinteresting, with mason jars, string lights, paper lanterns, burlap table runners, and various pies on cake stands. And this photo bomb was a hit on Instagram! (Isn’t my nephew, Archer, so cute?)
An alternative duo from Germany, Milky Chance is made up of vocalist and musician Clemens Rehbein and dj Philipp Dausch. The pair met in the eleventh grade in an “Advanced Music Course” and have been best friends ever since (aww). Clemens describes, “Think of it as the singer-songwriter spirit mixed with electronic beats. Somehow, it’s always a little bit melancholy, but there’s a positive spin.”
“Stolen Chance” comes off of their 2013 album Sadnecessary, the album title itself reiterates the melancholy-with-a-positive-spin vibe.

This weekend I went to the bachelorette party of my sister’s sister-in-law. We started the evening with blowouts and makeup at Blast, then headed to Ginger Hop for dinner and Honey for dancing. Those three places are some of my favorites! I bought the dress to wear in Vegas but we ended up staying in the hotel most of the nights…so a bachelorette party is the next occasion for which I deem this dress appropriate.
Here are a few photos from last week’s Bombay Bicycle Club show at Varsity Theater. The English indie rock band is currently touring in support of their 2014 album release, So Long, See You Tomorrow . The set spanned different albums, not saving the best for last, as the famed “Shuffle” was placed in the earlier half of the show. The backdrop included several circular screens with artistic stories running across them, maintaining visual captivation as well as holding our attention sonically.
Check out “It’s Alright Now” to get a taste of the new album:
