summer days of 2012: Alice Summerthing

Sunday June 24, 2012 – Alice Summerthing Concert

Lineup:

Vicci Martinez
Graffiti6
Scars on 45
Boys Like Girls
Adam Lambert

It started off as “one of those days”, you know, one of those days that you wish you didn’t go to bed so late the night before (or the morning of the event), one of those days that you wish you could sleep in more, one of those days that you wish you didn’t take on any responsibility, yes, it was the beginning of “one of those days” on Sunday June 24, 2012. But hey, “one of those days” ended up becoming a relaxing day – just us and a free concert (stress the word, free).

Waking up at 8:50 am with “free Kevin” stamped on my wrist and smoke-filled hair made me want to shout ^$#@*)(*#! The night of Saturday June 23, 2012 was filled with laughter and playing catch up at Sushi Boat (good sushi, good sake bombs, and good company) and dancing at Ruby Skye (where we saw Adrian Lux spinning in action). So, one can naturally see why I had an angst for waking up at 8:50 am to make lemon water and homemade toasted sandwiches (filled with homemade basil garlic aioli, turkey, provolone, onions, and tomatoes).

After 50 minutes of bustling around the kitchen and trying to be homey people early in the morning, man friend and I were finally ready to leave the house to head to Golden Gate Park  (Hellman Hollow, previously known as Speedway Meadow). Our plan was to park on Judah because we didn’t want to be stuck trying to find parking at Golden Gate Park, but little did we know that there was so many parking spots to chose from close to Hellman Hollow. The man friend and I got their pretty early and got to choose really good front row seats.

a quaint evening with live music.

Thursday November 3, 2011

An intimate night with good music and good company – this is what I call a perfect night after the rain. Mother nature definitely was on our side that night. It had been raining extremely hard the entire day, but hours before the concert, the rain had stopped and it was our night to enjoy. The venue (Slim’s; San Francisco, California) was small and quaint, but that was what made the night perfectly wonderful.

Line up:

  • Conner Flynn (with the Rhythm Twins)
  • Kate Voegele
  • Parachute
