Road Trippin’ to Twin ShadowPosted: April 22, 2011
When I found out back in February that the tickets to last weekend’s Coachella had sold out, I was on an immediate hunt to find tickets to the acts I’d regrettably be missing. I wasn’t all that interested in the headliners and would prefer an intimate setting with most of these bands anyway. Easily enough, I nabbed tickets to Warpaint, Twin Shadow with Pains of Being Pure at Heart (in Seattle), Sleigh Bells and Yacht for a grand total of $100 minus the plane ticket to L.A. plus a road trip to Seattle.
Today I embark on said roadtrip with Simon and his sister Cathy for the Twin Shadow/Pains of Being Pure at Heart double header. If you don’t know Twin Shadow, you should. Born George Lewis Jr., Twin Shadow released his debut album Forget in 2010, one of my favourite albums of the year.
Now that we have the music figured out, what snacks should we buy for our road trip?
