I hope you guys had a lovely weekend. I decided to treat myself and come home to Montreal this weekend. My bf Greg was in NY with me for the week and then we drove home together (with Luca of course…he surprisingly loved the drive). I hadn’t been home in months so it was nice to see all the familiar streets covered in leaves. I ran the mountain a few times (nothing like running in crisp cold air), took a tour of the shops (not much doing there) and ate some delicious meals. Today i spent the day at my mom’s new apartment, which she calls “empty nest” to “funky flat”, and i couldnt agree more. Its so cute, something right out of a magazine. Ill have to post pics soon (nothing like an apartment with hidden words like “love” and “memories made here” painted on the walls).
This trip reminded me why I love Montreal. Everyone always asks me if I plan to stay in NY or move back, and though I really do love NY, there is no contest. Montreal is home.
Speaking of Montreal, Greg (aka The Middle Distance Runner, the YBP blogger and the creator of Baeble Mixtapes) just launched his most recent project Meet You At The Show. It’s a site dedicated to everything concerning the Montreal music scene, from concert listings to show reviews, interviews to ticket giveaways and much more. If you live in the MTL area or are looking news about up and coming artists, I suggest you check it out. After all, who doesn’t love quirky interviews and free giveaways.
Meet you at the show. Okay? sounds great
you can buy one of these tees for your little one here
Hey everyone. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend. I’m so excited to announce the YBP Book Launch Tour. I wrote about the Indie Rock Coloring Book in a previous post. Well here comes the fun part, a week of fun launching the book! If you live in San Francisco, New York or Montreal or plan on being in one of these three locations listen up.
The launch will begin in San Fran on August 28th. It’ll take place at the Medicine Agency from 7 to 10 pm. Their will be indie music and free booze! So go check it out. There will also be a merch booth at the Outside Lands Music and Arts festival in Golden Gate Park, from August 28th – 30th.
I unfortunately cannot make it to the San Fran festivities but I will be at the NY and Mtl ones.
The Montreal launch is on Sept 5th at Librarie Dawn and Quarterly at 2pm. It’s featuring a special musical guest (hint: the artist is part of the YBP family). There will be an after party but the location is not for certain yet. I will keep you posted!
I promise if you come to one of these dates (or all!) you will not be disappointed! It’s an amazing way to surround yourself with talent and creativity while supporting a good cause.
You can also buy the book at Urban Outfitters
Also check out this week’s edition of Baeble Music’s TGI Mixtape. My boyfriend Greg, aka The Middle Distance Runner, works for Baeble and is also YBP’s blogger. This week, in honor of the launch, he created a YBP edition. Pay special attention to the National ft St. Vincent song Sleep All Summer, it’s amazing.
If you don’t already know of this lovely photographer/blogger/model you should definitely check her out. She recently moved from Michigan to Portland, blogging along the way. Her writing is honest and raw, a refreshing change. She also photographs for one of my favorite charity projects, the Yellow Bird Project.
Here is Megan
And here are some of her photographs
She really is wonderful and seems like a lovely person
