Top 6 Shows of 2007

I realized that I haven't done any "top music something of 2007" yet this year so here we go!
In 2007 I saw 6 bands that I haven't seen play live before and all of the shows were top notch. So, everyone gets a shout out.
Here they are in date order:

February 24, 2007 - The Lemonheads, Maxwells, Hoboken
WOW! It was a real treat to see The Lemonheads play a tiny show. Evan Dando has still got it after all these years.

May 8, 2007 - Ben Gibbard, Town Hall, NYC
This show was super fun all around! Ben Gibbard played all my favorite Death Cab & Postal Service songs solo.

May 15, 2007 - Arctic Monkeys, Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC
I bet I looked good on the dancefloor! The AM show was a great stress release with all the dancing and singing. This show totally ROCKED!

July 17, 2007 - Shout Out Louds, Luna Lounge, Brooklyn
I <3 the SOL so bad. I was so psyched to see them play and they did not disappoint. Their songs are so good and they really put their heart in to the performance. Two thumbs up!

August 9, 2007 - The Moody Blues, Radio City Music Hall, NYC
I got my dad a ticket to this show for Father's Day because he likes the band and I had never seen them live so I thought it would be fun. MB played an awesome show - they have so many good songs that I don't hear very often and the band was as solid as they were oh so long ago.

October 9, 2007 - The Hives, Webster Hall, NYC
Like SOL The Hives are from Sweden (yeah Sweden for giving us some great rockin' bands!). The Hives are so energetic and entertaining. They make sure that you have a good time at their shows. From their matching outfits to their stage personas it's win win all around.

Oscar Time!

So, it looks like I haven't blogged in a long time so probably nobody is attempting to read Swimming with Dolphins anymore.

But I'm back! (for now)

It's almost Oscar time and my roommate decided to throw an Oscar party. So, my genius idea is to make Oscar cookies complete with gold sugar flakes to make it all glitzy like the real one.

I figure I'll make my own cutout to use but I googled Oscar Cookie Cutter to see what would happen. Well, they do really make everything one could ever want, huh?
