Grace Potter - White Rabbit - North Coast Music Festival - 9/4/10

A few weeks ago, I did a post on the North Coast Music Festival in Chicago over Labor Day weekend. And I mentioned that Grace Potter and the Nocturnals played a cover of Jefferson Airplane’s White Rabbit. Well I found of a video of that performance, aaand I found out that her version of the song is featured on the Alice In Wonderland sountrack from the new Johnny Depp film. Here’s a link if you want to get the whole soundtrack, it features some really great artists.

i want my MTV!

Ive always been a big fan of music videos, and Im sad that they arent as big of a thing as they were back when I was growing up. I remember back when MTV actually played music, before all the dumb reality shows and stupid skanky dating shows. When TRL was on every day and they played ONLY music vids after 10pm. God I miss those days. So heres a throwback, of all of my favorite music videos. DESTINY - ZERO 7 talk about an amazing video. god this is so artistic and simple and beautiful. and the song just grabs at my soul its so amazing. zero 7 is such an amazing group, you’ve probably heard of their song In The Waiting Line which was on the Garden State soundtrack. its just so peaceful and pre

THE SHOUTY TRACK - LEMONJELLY i love the graphics in this video. the beat is so simple and its great how they got each little character to correspond with the beat. If you dont

Soundtracks

I mean those are some of my all-time favorite bands right there. And the scene

North Coast Music Festival 2010

I couldn’t believe when I heard about this festival that it was only $75 for three days. It was a weekend full of ALL of my favorite bands in one tiny little park on the west side of Chicago. Now Lollapalooza comes through Chicago every summer and for three days the tickets can come close to $300.

Friday started with Pretty Lights where I heard Gold Coast Hustle for the first time. It was super cool to hear my fave Colorado band throwin some love out to the Chi. It really hit my heart and made me love PL even more. Next we went t
