Favorite Tiny Desk Concerts | The Oh Hellos, Rubblebucket, and more

My dad introduced me to the NPR Tiny Desk Concerts a year or two ago, with a performance by the band Rubblebucket. Essentially, it’s artists ranging from 16-piece groups to solo singers in a tiny space, while NPR Music workers watch from behind the desk. There’s something more personal about them, all those people in such a small space, so today I thought I’d share … Continue reading Favorite Tiny Desk Concerts | The Oh Hellos, Rubblebucket, and more

Hi, hi everyone! (Why does my title sound like the beginning of a Buzzfeed article??) I’m just going to casually pretend like it hasn’t been…four? months since I last posted. Oops.

You’ve probably heard of plenty of non-fiction podcasts in the world- Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! by NPR is my mom’s favorite- but … Continue reading 7 Podcasts You Should Listen To (And If You’re Not Listening To Podcasts, You Should)

Symphonic Band Truths {blogmas day seventeen}

Note: this post is actually about concert/symphonic band, not marching band! I have no aspiration to ever do marching band, but I love symphonic band and playing pretty or fast or angry music. *happy face* I’M A HUGE MUSIC GEEK OKAY.

(I play the alto sax [best instrument over here *throws on sunglasses*] and we will never be in a symphony orchestra. *sighs*). ANYWAY! FORWARD MARCH. (wait did I just subconsciously make a pun? nevermind)
