This week we began at our new time (6pm on mondays!) with a moody/melancholy playlist with the vibe of grocery store sunsets… capturing that melancholy feeling of leaving the grocery store during beautiful sunset.

Crush #215 – RingoDeathstarr Special!

This past weekend we had the opportunity to go to the Ringo Deathstarr concert in Atlanta! We’ve both been huge fans and it was an incredible concert, they are so good live + played all of our favorite songs!! This was my first shoegaze concert, it was incredible seeing the technique and hearing the acoustics (the wall of sound definitely was an experience)… definitely need to go to more and would recommend it to any shoegaze lovers out there 🙂 We even met the band and told them about Crush, and they were super nice!
