Death Cab For Cutie


First I must say one thing that's been on my mind before I get into the joy of seeing my favourite band again.

There were times I felt angry watching Death Cab perform, seeing so many people around me on their phone, talking very loudly to one another, or being so drunk that they would shout the same thing over and over again, e.g. play the song 'I will follow you into the dark!', one lady must have said that maybe 15 times, of course they will play it, it's their top song. I felt like shouting at everyone around me to stop what they are doing and have some respect or leave! Ok, rant done! Promise.

I've been listening to Death Cab For Cutie since I was a 5-year-old (thanks mum for giving me a musical education). I first saw them live maybe three years ago at the Saint Jame theatre before it shut its doors. I did not believe my favourite band would come back so soon. I was delighted to find that they were going to be part of the Auckland Arts Festival. Now my photos do not do this performance the justice it deserves. I wish they could relay how tight a set it was, how well they all worked together. You could see that they have been working together and performing for a long time. Everything was perfect, perfect at some moments for me at least. You could probably guess, but I sang at the top of my lungs for every single song! And I loved every minute of it. I would bet $100 that my mum, sitting two rows behind me would have been crying for most the show!

The Beths - Future Me Hates Me Tour


Hey sorry again for getting these picks out late. It is my downfall, letting my editing pile up.

So The Beths the other week, Holy f#ck!

As always they were great! Playing their new album, 'Future Me Hates Me', which I have been playing on repeat a lot lately! Love it!

Some major news for The Beths, they are touring with one of my favourite bands 'Death Cab for Cutie', I am so excited for them! In fact I was jumping up and down when I found out.

I asked some of the band 'The Question', If you don't know the question well here it is:

What is the song that best represents who you are as a human, represents you? What song describes your fears, your hopes, your beliefs, your wishes your dreams, who you are at your core, whether it is one of your own songs or not. This question is not what is your favourite song or what song you wish represented you or a song that resonates with you. It's if you were a song what would it be?

For both Liz (Elizabeth Stokes) & Jon (Jonathan Pearce) decided that what best in-bodies who they are is…
