Guster at Variety Playhouse (1/10 – 1/11)
Okay – big news! Huge! My #1 favorite band in the entire universe, Guster, is playing at Variety Playhouse on Thursday and Friday!
Guster is almost always on tour and their live shows are sick. Their music was pretty much the soundtrack to my college experience. On top of that, they are pretty funny guys, too.
Here’s a little peek at what’s in store for us this week…
Anyway, I’ve been a huge Guster fan since high school, and I even got to hang out with them once after a show in Austin when they were signing autographs at Stubbs. They met us for drinks on 6th Street after. Highlight of my college career? You betcha. (Mich is going to kill me for digging up these.)
Not sure you know who Guster is? Please. Here’s the Q+DD on only the greatest alternative rock band EVER.
Don’t miss them, folks. That is a serious warning… Kevin and I want to jam out with you on Thursday! Ticket information HERE.

Adele! Adele! Adele! Adele! Adele!
She killed it at the Grammy’s last night winning an impressive SIX! Amazing, and so deserving.
And, she looked STUNNING in Armani. Watch her Grammy performance here! She was simply perfection!
I’m a really big fan. And, I don’t only appreciate Adele for being an unbelievably talented artist, but also for how she has addressed negativity in the press regarding her weight.
“I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that,” she said, according to the U.K. edition of Marie Claire. “I’d lose weight if I was an actress and had to play a role where you’re supposed to be 40 pounds lighter, but weight has nothing to do with my career. Even when I was signing [a contract], most of the industry knew if anyone ever dared say [lose weight] to me, they wouldn’t be working with me.”
Now THAT is an incredible sense of self. A true role model. What a beautiful, strong woman! I think we could all learn something from Adele. Many congratulations, lady!! :)

Lindsey Pavao Covers Trey Songz on The Voice
I’ll admit that I kinda hated on this show during season 1. Too much cheese. Didn’t love the concept. No vampires? No teenage moms? No New Jersey? Not interested.
Well, I’ll tell you WHAT. I’ve completely changed my tune.
Kev was watching The Voice the other night, and I heard Lindsey Pavao put her unique spin on Trey Songz “Say Aah,” and I’m sold! TOTALLY.
Watch it here: Lindsey Pavao Covers Trey Songz “Say Aah” on The Voice
“Hi, my name is Lindsay R. and I’m a fan of The Voice!” There – I said it. I’m pretty sure that I am going to watch every episode now to see how Lindsey Pavao does. That girl rocks hard.
Go get ‘em, Linds!
