Yikes. It has been a while since my last Life Lately. And Life Lately has been moving at at the speed of light. [Insert obligatory Ferris Bueller / Back to the Future references here because I am always going to be an 80s kid] February was an incredible month. Not only was it G’s birthday month (well weekend), we got to try a bunch of new experiences.
In early February, we went to our first #SOFAR concert, which are these secret, intimate performances in different (read: cool) spaces. We heard the Ed-Sheeran-esq songs by Evan Nachimson (@enachmusic), the electic beats of tristaño @tristanobeats, and the soulful sounds of Kate Usher & the Sturdy Souls (@kateushermusic ) all in the comfortable bean bag chairs of the Dumbo’s Frog Design Studios. Here is the deal, yo go to the So Far Concert page and you pick a date/location that works for you. The concerts are around $20 and are typically BYOB. The day before the concert, you’ll find out the exact location. I highly recommend it- both as a new experience AND to hear some INCREDIBLE up and coming artists.
We continued the fun with an incredible talk about Trevor Noah at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. If you haven’t already run (don’t walk) to purchase his book “Born a Crime!” Trevor Noah is incredible- his astute observations on politics (of all kinds) and his unwavering optimism are such a beacon of hope in this politically depressing time.
The rest of the month was incredible— but very birthday specific– I’ll let you check out that post yourself. Here’s to some more consistent Life Lately’s in the future.
Big hugs, A

About Life Lately
Welcome to my monthly “Life Lately” reflections, where I chronicle things did/ate/drink and liked. I’ve never been much for diaries (short attention span!), but I do really love looking back on these monthly lists. I hope you do too!
