My darling husband recently felt it necessary to bring to my attention two new infatuations he believes are getting a bit serious. It is no surprise to people who know me that I wear my hear on my sleeve and I fall hard. Hard and fast. And right now I am in luuuurrv with a capitol "L" when it comes to Donald Glover and the band Electric Guest. These summer crushes were solidified a few weeks back when I got to see both live at Bonnaroo but only time will tell if they turn into a full fledged summer love affair.
You've heard me swoon before about Mr. Glover here and let me tell you he was all I hoped he'd be live. In my head he behaves exactly like his character Troy on Community and only puts his stank face on when frontin' as Childish Gambino. I was super bummed when the original Charlotte show date got cancelled back in the spring but I have the rescheduled July date on the books. I have a date with destiny my friends and I may even let the hubs tag along;)
If you guys think you don't know Electric Guest their single This Head I Hold should sound pretty familiar. I hadn't really paid attention to the whole album before kicking of my 'Roo festivities with their show. They were delightful, I loved every song, and Asa Taccone had me at "Hey Bonnaroo, it's Noon. We're Electric Guest ~ the opening act for Ludacris' soundcheck"!. Did I mention Jorma Taccone's (1/3 of The Lonely Island as well as Booth Jonathon) is his brother? What can I say, I have a thing for eyebrows. I never stood a chance man.
I silently say a prayer at least once a week that Q will not catch Bieber Fever or whatever her generations equivalent is going to be. I think we're off to a good start with her musical tastes because this joint is her jam and she will literally run from another room to get down to it.
May your Summer be filled with love
