Living through these crazy circumstances has brought to focus all of the areas of my life where I am incredibly privileged. Whenever I look around my apartment and think to myself, “these next couple of months are going to be hard,” I’m immediately reminded of how privileged I am to have the securities that I do have in my life. I’m lucky to be able … Continue reading Some Mourning.
It hadn’t been that long since I’d seen Ween leading up to this Valentine’s Weekend run. Only a few months ago I was waiting in line to see Ween in Boston and Philly. So when I parked my car in New Haven, CT, and met my friend in line, it felt like things were back to the way they’re supposed to be. There’s almost no … Continue reading Ween in New Haven + NYC (Night One), Valentine’s Day
By the end of Ween’s Valentine’s Weekend run, I was already feeling pretty lucky. Sure, in line we were sharing our final hopes, songs that we wanted to hear before we had to call it quits. I may have whined a bit about how badly I wanted to hear Laura. But the show that we got was better than hearing any one request. I couldn’t … Continue reading Ween at Terminal 5, 2/15/2020 (Night Two)
2020 is already going to be one of my most exciting years yet! My first, full calendar year out of academia, I’m hoping to exercise some of the freedom that I have now and learn to adapt to the freedom I used to have in school. But most importantly on my list, I’m hoping that this year contains a lot of travel and a lot … Continue reading Lots to Look Forward to in 2020
2019 was full of new places. I went on my first solo Road Trip, following King Gizzard for a week and getting to check in on a bunch of my people on the East Coast. I made four trips to Toronto and never went to the same neighborhood twice. Perhaps most excitingly, I finally went on my first big international trip, exploring the Caribbean with … Continue reading Favorite Destinations of 2019
In 2019, there was nowhere that I would rather be than Great Scott in Allston, Massachusetts. I live about 3.5 hours (on a good day) outside of Boston, so every time I go to Great Scott, it’s a bit of a pilgrimage. That’s one of my favorite things about the venue- I love making a whole day out of a show. Once I’m in Allston, … Continue reading Venue of the Year 2019: Great Scott in Allston, MA
Ween shows are one of the places that make me feel like I’m home. In a part of my life when I’m embracing a nomadic attitude (I don’t think I’ve been home for the weekend since September), spaces where I feel this way are really special. And this show (my 6th time seeing Ween) was made even more special because my older brother, the person … Continue reading Ween, House of Blues, Boston MA
