Song Of The Day: Tic Tic Boom! – The Sun Will Set

Artist: Tic Tic Boom!

Song: The Sun Will Set

Its no secret The Sun Will Set happens to be my favorite Tic Tic Boom song. It’s just a feel good song that reminds me of California summers and just being carefree. Whenever I hear it I feel the need to turn up loud and just sing. This song alone always reminds me why I believe Tic Tic Boom is one of the best bands in LA!

Very happy TTB will celebrate the official release of their new EP ‘It’s the Heart That’s a Fool’ at the Silverlake Lounge. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this awesome duo then tonight should be the night!

Video: Tic Tic Boom! – How It Ends

Today, Tic Tic Boom! released a new video for their song ‘How It Ends’, directed by lead singer Leilani Francisco. If you follow the band on Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook the last few weeks, you would have seen them leaving hints about the video shoot.

And my patience has been rewarded……

Its a great video and I simply was not prepared for the Romeo + Juliet twist I have to admit I was a blubbering fool by the end of this video. This video makes me EXCITED for the things to come with this band!

Enjoy!

Save the day for Tic Tic Boom’s EP release, ‘It’s The Heart That’s a Fool’ on October 8th!!

New Music: TicTic Boom!- These Motions

There’s is nothing like getting an email from one of your favorite bands with a link to their new music. So you can imagine the kind of happy dance I put on for my dog when I saw the Tic Tic Boom! email for their new song ‘These Motions’.

Mark your calendars –> new EP titled It’s the Heart That’s a Fool available October 8th! YAH!!

Wires In The Walls: Roadshow (Live) from Sessions On The Hill

Blaster Master Productions has debut their new video series, Sessions On The Hill featuring LA’s very own Wires in the Walls. If you follow Wires on instagram or twitter you’ll know this is the ‘shoot’ they were teasing fans with a couple of weeks ago.

I love the video and admit I’ve watched at least three times before I even thought to post a blog! I love this quote from the Blaster website…

“I opened Blaster Master Productions with the idea of providing clients the perfect blend of comfort, location, and fantastic sounding rooms.” – Ali Nikou

See Wires in the Walls perform this song (and others) along with LA finest, Little Red Lung, Owls, Tic Tic Boom and more…..on August 3rd for NoHoPalooza!

Tic Tic Boom! – For Feeling

I’ve been so out of it lately that nearly missed the new Tic Tic Boom! video for ‘For Feeling’. I like the trying to escape a nightmare aspect. And I really like this song, I would always listen and irritate my co-workers cause it was so catchy. Plus when you want to take a quick walk around Downtown LA during your lunch hour – this is a great tune to have on your iPod.

Enjoy!

My Birthday Playlist….

So today is my birthday **woo hoo party time!**….I could bitch and moan about my age but will appreciate all the good music I’ve had a chance to record and enjoy. So come along with me for a recap of a fun year for me…..

It’s Time by Imagine Dragons at SxSW best showcase I saw that week. And I got a kiss from Dan so I was a happy camper!

One of my favorite musicians is Matt Corby….young and amazingly talented. I first saw him at SxSW in 2011 ( @meggst remember that moment?) but he FINALLY played at my favorite venue Hotel Cafe in March just before SxSW 2012. The lighting is bad in this video but Matt is still amazing.

A little gem I found by the name of Little Red Lung…..I love these guys so much! Again bad lighting but great music!

Another favorite for me is Sam Bradley….that boy can do no wrong in my eyes. Not only is he talented but he’s one of the nicest guys I’ve met in a long time. I wish the world would appreciate his awesomeness! (I did not take this video….I didnt make this show **no tears** so I must thank BRITPACKLOVE for posting on YouTube) 

For some reason I haven’t uploaded any of the latest Tic Tic Boom! perfomances onto my YouTube….this hurts considering my compter is dead 😦 But this was taken at the Sunset Jubliee last year. 

Okay I will end this posting with my favorite LA Band’s Wires In the Walls…..talented guys! Again not my video but from Jam in the Van. (www.jaminthevan.com)

Apparently on your birthday you get a wish…but you’re not suppose to tell….crap! I think you know what I wished 😉

And thank you to allt he musicians who make my life that much better – wonderful lyrics and talent to make my day a little easier. Little do you know you help so many people when you least expect it.

Summer in SoCal is kicking off with the Eat/See/Hear event in Pasadena.
Several food trucks are parked near City Hall, music is from one of my favorite LA band’s Tic Tic Boom and then watch Adam Sandler’s hilarious comedy ‘The Wedding Singer’!
Photo was taken while Tic Tic Boom was performing sadly left my camera at home so iPhone photos will have to do!
