Make Your Exit…

“…Ambient indie rock, saxophone included… An amazing show… Also some of the nicest people I’ve ever met…” -Much Music Review
They have voices like angels… and then the instruments… Oh man… I’m in my happy place right now because of these five extremely talented twenty-something year olds!
Group Members: Jeff Buckley – lead vocals, guitar: Mike Dellios – bass: Steve Dagg – drums: Skidboot – guitar
“Make Your Exit is unlike anything you’ve heard before, yet it won’t be hard to wrap your head around… they showcased a sound that was not unlike the many collective type bands that our country has grown synonymous with… an example of art-mospheric jazz tinged brass rock culminating in a soaring climax…”It’s Not The Band I Hate, It’s Their Fans Review

I could use all kinds of fancy words, and “music lingo” to describe the awesomeness that is Make Your Exit, but I don’t see the point as their music needs no fancy words! However, I will say that their music is pretty f’n dope… the best part about it is, it’s so honest; which is hard to come by nowadays, in a time when artists are painting pretty or not so pretty pictures of life (their lives). But just because it’s not honest doesn’t mean it’s boring. Quite the opposite actually. Their sound is noisey, aggressive, but modest and sweet all at the same time!  
…if you’re looking for specific genres: Ambient/Indie/Experimental

Smart Shopping

With the holiday seasons approaching and all kinds of sales and deals – hold on tight to you wallet girlfriend cuz they are out to get you. I kid you not when I say i love LAMB (get it? lol)! But shoppers beware! Sales are sometimes not as good as it seems. So do your research and take your time. There is no rush. Emotional shoppers = dumb shoppers. 

For those of you who follow me know that I saw the Hip Signature Booties on sale for $100 at Nordstrom Rack in Glendale on Black Friday right?

Well they are on sale at for $395 $217.77

Then I saw these bad boys from Moschino Cheap and Chic that made my 
heart skip a beat. They were yellow heeled and grey sweatshirt material! 
How dope.

These puppies were on sale for $299.

Ummm but I am pretty sure I saw them at ShopBop for… 

Moschino Cheap And Chic
$550 $165 –

I really wanted to get them but the super long line deterred me and I think they just look too 
similar to my BCBG ones. Since I have been listening to Tony Robbins seminars – 
let me advise you against what they call the ‘urgency to buy‘. Do not make impulsive, emotional 
decisions. That’s why sometimes I call lining up to pay the cooling period. Think. If you already 
had those shoes and someone offered you cash back for those, what do you want more: the shoes 
or the cash? 

24 shopping days left until Christmas! Have fun and shop smart!
