MusicBest of the Fest: LuLu*s at First City Festival

7

I have had a pretty great festival season, and First City Festival was the perfect way to end it! It was the festival’s first year, but they totally pulled it off. The food was fabulous (awesome food trucks galore), the bands were amazing, and there was even a carnival! It took place at Monterey’s County Fair Grounds and Event Center, where the Monterey Pop Festival took place in 1967, which was a super fun fact to me being obsessed with 60s and 70s culture.

Purity Ring, Toro y Moi, and Capital Cities were up there in my favorites along with Dr. Dog, Washed Out, and Delta Spirit. But in the end, pretty much every band I saw this weekend was amazing! In the photo above, you can see us LuLu*s girls goofing around at the festival. Check out more of my fav bands, festival looks, and instagram snaps below!

MusicListen Up! Robin Thicke Releases Blurred Lines

Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke releases “Blurred Lines” today!

Hey, hey, hey!  If you’ve been bootie-shaking to Robin Thicke’s seventies-inspired track “Blurred Lines” all summer, then it’s time to add a few more dance tracks to your collection. Following a fairly silent release of “Love After War” in 2011, Thicke’s latest venture steers off the tracks of his previous R&B  pursuits, and onto a pop music path that pulls a vibrant, free-flowing energy from his party boy lifestyle. “Blurred Lines” (the album) makes a stylish comeback for disco too, weaving some Marvin Gaye or early MJ -style licks throughout this perky dance album…with a few R&B songs thrown in on the end.
