Wild Belle! Lovers Rock <3

By February 15, 2019 No Comments

Our favorite thing to do as a couple is go to San Diego. It’s not very original or new. It’s where we met. It’s where we fell in love. It just makes sense cause symbolism is important to me. We went to San Diego to see one of my favorite bands, which my partner actually likes! I mean, I like including him in the things I like to do but honestly, I wouldn’t ask him to go to a Lady Gaga show with me cause I think he would really regret San Diego if I did. I’m glad he likes them cause the night before we drove to San Diego, we went to their show at The Zebulon. Saw them two nights in a row, yes. Hey, second time we got to have our favorite Mexican seafood so it was a win win win win win.

Itinerary

We stopped at Searsucker Del Mar for drinks beforehand
Then we went to Oscar’s in Downtown SD 
Finally, Avolution Fest – I’m just gonna say the festival was incredibly small and not what I expected but loved not having the obstructed view of the stage provided by the guy in the hat at The Zebulon

Wild Belle describes themselves as “Lovers Rock.” Pretty accurate. I love their subject matter and their sound, but it could be all noise and bullshit, I would still listen to it if it had Elliot’s saxophone and Natalie’s voice. I never even knew I wanted that combination ’till I heard of them. However, it does help a lot that the lyrics resonate with my endless love of true romance and what it signifies in our lives.

I found them while looking for similar artist to Phantogram on last.fm. The video for “Keep You” is so goofy and unique. I’m sure a lot of people have a lot of “little men” to weep about. All their music videos have that home-made-maybe-i-should-work-on-my-art-too feeling. My dream job is to make music videos so that truly inspires me.
