Atlanta, Music, nightlife

Hey, hey! I hit up the Saint Jhn concert in Atlanta recently. I was excited for the show because Saint Jhn’s music is dope. His tone, the vibes, and the general aesthetic is fire. He has 2 compilations on Apple Music. I recommend you check them out. If you take a listen, drop me a comment about what you think.

I was overall happy with the show, but something was definitely amiss during the performance because you could see it on Jhn’s face. My guess is that something was off with the sound. After the first verse of a lot of the songs, he would cut the music to do an a cappella thing. Idk about that, but regardless, it was still a fun show because the songs go hard. Atlanta was the second stop of the tour, so if Saint Jhn is in your city, swing through. I fucks with it.

And as you can see, I switched up my look. Hey girl! The blonde is gone and these bundles have arrived, lol. I rocked long straight hair for a decent amount of my life, so I miss it sometimes. The weather was letting me live my best style life too so I was not mad. Let me know if you’re digging the look in the comments.

Peace.

AFROPUNK Atlanta 2019

Atlanta, Lifestyle, Music

AFROPUNK Atlanta 2019. Yowza.

I’m not even exaggerating when I say that this was by far the best AFROPUNK I’ve ever been too. Atlanta clowned. The people were BEAUTIFUL. Everyone. Not just some folks, but all. Vibes everywhere. I’m honestly still on cloud 9. I’m so in awe of how AFROPUNK leveled alllllll the way the fuck up this year. So many sponsorships and cool interactive art installations. The overall scale was just grander. It was beautiful.

Now for the tunes:

Lucky Daye. Anderson Paak. Smino. Masego. Mahalia. Brittany Howard. Fever 333.

Lucky Daye has been one of my favorites for a while and this was my first time seeing him in concert. His live show is amazing. I would have been satisfied if I went home after his set. But then I get to see Smino, a fellow STLien. And end the night with Anderson Paak who did a tribute to Mac Miller. Shawty is mad content. I am shawty.

I’m excited for how AFROPUNK Atlanta is evolving. If you were at the festival, drop me a comment! What was your favorite experience at AFROPUNK this year?

Peace,

Music: Afrobeats Concert @ the A3C Festival

Atlanta, Music, nightlife, ootd

Hey! I was at the A3C Afrobashment show at the Tabernacle. I’m a big fan of Afrobeats at this point so I was pretty excited to check out a good show. Initially, this show had: Afro B, Mr Eazi, Koffee, Tiwa Savage, and Burna Boy. As it got closer to the show date, Tiwa and Burna Boy were removed from the lineup. How? I was super dissapointed, but I still went out to see Mr. Eazi, Afro B, & Koffee. I tell you one thing, Afrobeats music is the truth. So “feed-good”, so swaggy, just everything. And Koffee and her band were super talented.

Did anybody else check out this show or see these artists recently? Thoughts? Who’s your favorite Afrobeats artist? I’m really digging Burna Boy, Wizkid, & Juls right now.

Anyway, this is what I wore. Pants from H&M, a (quintessential Atlanta) men’s sequins t-shirt that says “The Plug”, and creepers for good measure. It is spooky season, right?

Burna Boy Atlanta Show

Atlanta, Music, nightlife, ootd

I was at the Burna Boy show in Atlanta last night. Even though it was on a Tuesday and I had class the next morning, I didn’t wanna miss it. I figured his show would be awesome since his music consistently bops.

Sigh….

Ok. Ima start with the positive:

Hella people showed up. The opening act & DJ had a whole Afrobeats vibe going on so the mood in the venue was lovely (earlier on). It was black folks from all across the diaspora meeting in the exact same time & place for a Nigerian artist. And that, was dope. Also, his graphics were so cool to me. Props to whoever designed those.

But. Burna lowkey burned us. The show started at 8….he didn’t arrive until after 10:30. He wasn’t even in town when the show started. People left before he even got there and everyone else was pissed. I don’t know how many times I randomly heard “Where the fuck is Burna Boy.” That shit was a mess.

Once he got on stage, his performance was good. But at that point I had to force my eyes open out of sheer exhaustion (i.e.: momlife, doctoral student life, I be tired life.) Overall I’m still happy that I could see Burna live. My guy just needs to get his time management together.

I was still cute tho. 🙂

Aubrey and The Three Migos: Final Show in Atlanta

Atlanta, Lifestyle, Music

At the Drake and Migos show Sunday night. Big concerts in Atlanta are fun because you can pretty much bet on there being at least one special guest. I mean, it’s Atlanta. So Drake brought out like 50-leven guests: Future, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Young Jeezy, Lil Baby, etc.  The show was visually really dope too. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how that yellow car was hovering around the arena. 

I created a look with bell bottoms, a cropped top, and a leather jacket. Then I tied it together with a big ass hat and green velvety loafers. I dig.

Overall, it was a good time. I’m trying to be all about positivity and happiness. Happiness is like wealth. Take time to do things that bring that kind of wealth into your life. You deserve the good time.

Now I have to take a break from concerts. I’s tired.

Astroworld: Travis Scott Atlanta Concert

Atlanta, Lifestyle, Music, ootd

Jacket: American Living; Shoes: Reebok

Travis Scott brought Astroworld to Atlanta last night. It was trippy, weirdo vibes and I’m not mad at it.  The show opened with Trippie Redd and Gunna. They were both high energy.  The whole night was basically just a hype-fest with lots of moshing and pyrotechnics. I was supposed to be digging deep into my self-care (see previous post)…ya know, warm bubble baths, kicking my feet up, drinking tea, etc. But instead I was at a Travis Scott concert. Travis Scott. The artist that is notorious for wild ass shows. Yep. That’s where my sick ass found myself.  Self-care is a process, lol.  It was fun though.

Drake/ Migos concert is up next. Got a few days to rest up until then. 🙂

Anybody see the Drake show yet? Do I need to drink some apple cider vinegar and take my vitamins before I go!? Let me know.

H.E.R. Concert

Atlanta, Lifestyle

Made my way to the H.E.R. concert at the Coca-Cola Roxy this past Saturday. The Roxy is a cool venue. If you aren’t already familiar with this artist, you are massively missing out. She’s just so talented and effortlessly cool.

My Virginia homie came in town and we made a jam packed day out of it with the whole fam. The H.E.R. concert was the icing on the cake. My body was so wiggly that night, it doesn’t even make sense. Vibes everywhere.

Almost everything I’m wearing came from a thrift store (shirt, bag, pants.) Shoes are from GoJane.com They always have cute styles for the hella low. Oh, and this blue lip is a liquid matte from Mac.

Who else is catching H.E.R. in concert?
