Push Play: Scene Hair Hits


Ten years ago, if you wanted to find me you’d look in the nearest music venue. I’d be the girl in the front row with the acid wash skinny jeans, layers of tank tops and scene hair. Don’t believe me? Here’s proof (hahahaha). Albeit ridiculous fashion choices, those were some of the best years of my life. Staying out late and screaming along lyrics at the top of my lungs with my best friends was one of the first times I felt like I was a part of something. Oh, to be a teenager.

So imagine my delight when a twitter pal of mine posted a link to a playlist he made, chock-full of the very songs and bands I fell in love with all those years ago. Fellow retired scene kids (I know you’re out there), take a trip down memory lane with me and listen to some old favorites. You can find all the emo goodness right here on rdio.

    Dude! Such a killer mix. I still rock out to a lot of those bands. :D So good!

    I love seeing live shows — my hubby and I do so as much as we possibly can. We’ll be heading to San Francisco later this month to see a folk singer named William Fitzsimmons. This will be our third time seeing him, pretty excited!

    What has been you favorite show? I saw Sigur Ros this summer and it BLEW MY MIND! So good! Explosions in the Sky was ridiculously good too. Wow.
