Impromptu Noisettes Concert!


I was reading the Metro on the way into work this morning...and what should I see? "Noisettes: Shiny Happy People." WHAT? Noisettes? In the Metro? Are they in town? Yes they are and they are playing at Allston Bar/Club Great Scott for $10.00! How awesome is that? I of course checked around to see if anyone wanted to go with me, but a Monday night out is a bit of a tough sell, so it looks like I'm hitting the club alone. Regardless, I'm super pumped about this show. I've been listening to both albums (What's The Time Mr. Wolf? & Wild Young Hearts) on repeat at my desk, as well as the remixes for "Don't Upset The Rhythm." This should be an AMAZING show. I bet lead singer Shingai Shoniwa is unbelievable live. She's got so much power in that voice and she's absolutely stunning.

Erika Jayne - Pretty Mess Advanced
Also worth noting...I got my advance copy of the brand new Erika Jayne album, Pretty Mess (out Tuesday 8/11), as well as the latest Kristine W. album, Power of Music. Now that's a good music Monday, if you ask me! More on the concert and both CDs later this week. I'm off to the show!

My Weekly Last FM Chart

So, since I rarely listen to the same track more than...2 - 3 times on average. Sure...there are the occasional tracks that really grab a hold of me (i.e. - "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)," "Je Suis Une Dolly") but for the most part I like to change things up. With that being said, I'm going to just post my top listened to artists each week. Perhaps I'll do top listened to tracks once a month? Perhaps not. Here it most listened to artists for the past week, according to Last FM.

Last FM Chart
Most Listened To Artists:

4. Billie Piper

Will you look at that? All of my girls, right there in my Top Ten. And then there's Ray LaMontagne. This weeks chart is indicative of the music I was feeling this past week. With life as hectic and stressful as it is, I lost myself in my work and my music. To help get me through the day, I need up-tempo, driving dance beats that both cheer me up and keep me energized. At the same time, those days that I am exhausted, beat down or just hung over...I need to slow down the pace and put on music that helps me relax. Looking at this chart, we cover all of our bases.

On the up-tempo side, we have the Sugababes, Kylie Minogue, Cyndi Lauper and Alesha Dixon...and to slow things down we have Ray LaMontagne, Elliott Yamin and to an extent, Jordin Sparks. We also have some artists that strike the perfect balance of the two - artists like the Noisettes, Billie Piper, and Kelly Clarkson. Speaking of Billie Piper...I wish she'd consider a return to music...I love her to death in Secret Diary of a Call Girl, but I ADORE her pop hits of the late 90s/2000s. Pure pop brilliance. Like honey to the bee.
