February is the shortest month and yet it can easily feel like the longest, with the early-setting sun and bitter cold standing between me and spring – and my birthday, on March 1st. (Start planning now!)
At least this February, I have the sweet face of Harry Styles looking over my shoulder as I type, as his 21st birthday (can I buy you a drink, handsome?!) on February 2 makes him my calendar boy of the month.
Yes, my possibly inappropriate 1D fangirl obsession continues, but I was able to make it work with a recent story posted on AXS.com, when respected indie troubadour Martin Sexton covered a 1D song for his daughter, after she found out that Harry was following him on Twitter.
Other recent stories for that site include:
Courtney Barnett’s new single/video and upcoming album. Very excited for this as I loved her album and the show I caught last year, at the Black Cat. She was also very gracious afterwards, meeting fans and signing albums. Here I am with the cool lady.
Sufjan Stevens’ new album and upcoming tour.
Rapper/singer Lizzo gets coveted spot opening for Sleater-Kinney’s tour.
I’ve had a few other items posted recently, so here are some other links for your pleasure:
Jukebox the Ghost and Twin Forks giving away free music and touring together.
A review of The Black Cadillacs, and Knox Hamilton (a new favorite band) at Jammin Java.
A review of (charming Southern boy) Christian Lopez, also at Jammin Java.
To recap, here are places you can find me and links to a whole lotta love:
