I tried to write you a song but the words all came out wrong

 Last week I saw The Orwells, and can I just say that was a show that changed my life.

I honestly was so incredibly impressed with their set, it was the best show I have ever seen! They had so much energy and the venue was really small, and I was right up against the stage which was amazing! It was also really cool that I got to meet a few of them before the show, and Mario (vocals), Dominic (white guitar) and Grant (bass) signed my shirt!! I've never ever met a band member before so honestly I was just so pumped about that. Holy.

We also met the opening band, The Beverlys and we had some conversations. It turns out they've played with one of our favourite local bands Watershed Hour at our very own bar The Spill, so we'll hopefully set something up with them!

Unfortunately when I got home from the show I went on the Orwells tag and discovered that Mario is the biggest asshole on the planet (not just that, but he yells shit like 'faggot' onstage, and he was pretty rude to me & my friend in comparison to how he was treating other people, more stereotypically attractive girls. plus everything he posts on his twitter is revolting) . I still like The Orwells for their music, but next time I see them I am probably going to punch mario in the face and cut off all of his hair so he hopefully looses his fucked up ego.

anyway, I thought I'd share a couple of photos of spots around my room b/c I'm kind of in love with it right now... and I honestly don't spend enough time in it! here we go! :)
this is the corner of my room with my amp & my bass & some record sleeve posters... I just changed the curtain & I think it's really spiced up this part of my room. I also have the same bass as Grant from the Orwells... haha that was one of the only things I said to him and he was like 'it's a good bass'.
 this is the corner of my room where I make tapes & listen to records, I spend most of my time here or on my bed :
the view of my record corner from my bed...
aaand an overview of my bass area thingy from standing on my bed. to the right of the photo is where my door is, and to the left is where my records etc. are. My room is pretty much tiny, but it's packed to the brim & it's perfect for me :)

my cool friends The Faux Cults just put out an EP yesterday! We're playing with them next week at The Spill, and I can't wait to get my hands on a physical copy! you should definitely check it out. My personal favourites are 'little birdy' and 'party from hell', but it's all really good. yay for home recording!

I hope you're all having a lovely week!

  2. okay so I saw the signed orwells top and had to read this post immediately but maaan that sucks about Mario. it's stupid as well bc obviously I don't know these other girls, but you're the cool musical one in a band so you should be the one they wanna talk to more! I found that when I saw the strypes who are one of my favourite bands - the entire way through this girl next to me (we were at the barrier) was just pouting and looking all seductive, NEVER singing along and Josh, the guitarist, just had like *eye sex* (idk how else to describe it) with her the entire way through which was kinda offputting. I met him afterwards though and he was literally the nicest person which I was so glad for, bc if one of my favourite ever bands were all dicks then that would wreck me... the rest of the gig sounds great though. your room is so cool! and I so approve of your Vaccines poster haha;) i'll have a listen to your ep! I just can't get over how involved you seem with your local music scene...I wish I was more musical! xxx

  3. guhh your room (and you) are SO rad. where's the curtain from? i love the orwells but it's really hard to seperate art from people- like a few weeks ago I found out that mac demarco one of my favorite singers was making rape jokes onstage and for a while i tried to stop listening- but i guess if you are aware of the terrible stuff that great artists do it just gets to be your responsibility to stay a fan but call them out on it whenever you can. Anyway, that Faux Cults EP is amazing and it's so cool that it's home recorded!

    1. aww thanks :) the curtain is actually just a piece of fabric my mum found at a second hand store! ugh I know :P the comment Mario made on twitter was actually in relation to the rape jokes mac demarco made, he was basically defending Mac so that sucked. thank you!! :)
