Today I am feeling incredibly thankful. I am thankful to be alive, thankful for my family and friends, thankful for air-conditioning, and thankful for having the opportunity to participate in covering Shaky Knees Music Festival. Oh, yea, I admit that within that thankfulness, I am feeling a little sad. Sad, that is, that this weekend is over.
But, here on my blog, I can totally relive the entire weekend.
You see, it all started with my love of music, then my writing about it, and coincidentally about stretching myself way beyond my comfort zone. I truly believe pushing limits puts you in a place where your heart and soul begin to grow. I applied for a press pass for Shaky Knees. It wasn’t a long application, but one that I thought very intentionally about. I wanted it, I wanted it badly.
After weeks of not hearing, I decided to write an e-mail and inquire. That’s when I received this…
Hi Carrie –
Just released Mac Demarco tune, “The Way You’d Love Her”
As for the headliner, The Strokes, it was such a packed park, they weren’t able to get any good pictures to send. They sent this message instead, ” Julian Casablanca owned the stage and the crowd, as soon as they hit the first licks.”
So here’s the first song in their set….
And reportedly they made a live debut of “All The Time”.
It was awesome to get regular updates, a big thank you to my four, fun music friends.
Stay tuned for my Saturday concert recap. When I finally get to Central Park, Shaky Knees 2015 proves to be full of colorful, fun friends, sights, and incredible sounds that you don’t want to miss!
Happy recovery Monday, y’all!
