Can we talk about how this May is going to be the greatest month of ALL OF OUR LIVES?
Or maybe just mine. But seriously, guys...
First up, there's going to be a James Blake DJ set happening in my life. A JAMES BLAKE DJ SET!
Shortly after I calm down from that happening (you know, like a week later), I'll be seeing Daughter at Lincoln Hall. And I have a sneaking suspicion it's going to be amazing:
Then, the moment I've been waiting for, for what seems like an entirety. The Great Gatsby comes out in theaters. (Here's hoping Tobey Maguire doesn't ruin everything for all of us.) But regardless, we need to talk about the soundtrack.
BECAUSE IT'S MY DREAM:
As if all of that isn't enough excitement, The National's new album, Trouble Will Find Me, comes out May 21st. (To explain just how pumped I am about this, I think my documented love of The National speaks for itself.) I'll be seeing them for the third time this summer at Lollapalooza, and I simply cannot wait to sing along and weep and spill red wine all over myself along with Matt Berninger in the Chicago August heat!
Not to mention: This. Single. ("I can't fight it anymore, I am going through an awkward phase...")
This could be the best May yet!
