Before peebs I had quite a bit of music reviews and concert posts, and even though I have not posted much to that lately, we are still loving music and going to shows ( when we can). I have large dreams of a nekkid hippie peebs running through the grass at an outdoor music festival ( bonaroo?) HA
So for New Years ( also our anniversary) Erik and I joined our good Buddies from Florida ( Linzy and Adam) in Chattanooga and Greenville, SC to see the Avett Brothers back to back nights.
I REALLY love the Avett Brothers. They are super talented, lyrically and musically. Passionate performers, and all around good Christian dudes/daddies/husbands. It is a really refreshing music scene. One of their concerts I went to they had their mom and wives and kids on the side of the stage jammin in those big headphones to protect their ears and it was SO cute.
They have some really moving songs, and one of my fav's is called " Murder in the City" in which he talks about if he gets murdered, or dies, what he wants his family to think and feel and it makes me cry every time I hear it.
I really can't imagine the pride their mother must feel when she sees them making such beautiful music. Every now and then their sister Bonnie will join them on stage. SO awesome.
So basically I love them and put them up on my super fav lists with The Indigo Girls, Death Cab for Cutie, Jason Mraz, R.Kelly and Usher.
So speaking of my random music tastes.. Here are some downloads from 2011 I hope you didn't miss:
Paramour - The only Exception ( beautiful song)
Adele - Someone Like You
Tpain & Lily Allen - 5 O'Clock ( good beat, hilarious lyrics like "waitin on me naked with one of my gold chains on)
Drake - Headlines
Little Wayne - She Will
Jason Mraz - I won't give up ( so sad about his break up with Tristan Prettyman, but dang he needs to get off the Reefer so he can live in this universe)
Audio Push - Teach me How to Jerk
Thompson Square - You gonna kiss me or not
