This week’s Weekend Mixtape was so fun. We saw that because of the turn out we had of audience winners. The Soul by Ludacris performance area was jam-packed with fans of the band Capital Cities. They performed my all time favorite, Safe and Sound, along side some newer tracks from their much anticipated album: In a Title Wave of Mystery. The album is set to drop on June 11th (Right around my birthday, wahooo!).
Although, everything was wildly performed and insanely incredible, the entire set up was the wacky part. Guitarist Joe King from The Fray was also in the studio promoting some new music he is working on. The team at KIIS worked it out so that he could stay in the artist lounge while Capital Cities set up for the Weekend Mixtape.
But it caught me by surprise when I walked over to the lounge and found the band and Joe King inside!!!! No one had introduced them yet. And they were just there talking. I wasn’t sure what to do. Do I introduce them? Move them to different areas!? AHHH! !
Then I realized they were all hanging out, chilled and relaxed. The performers were both sent on their way to do their interviews and performances without a scuffle.
Musicians brought together by their craft and the chase to release new art through music. Performers with passion for what they are so lucky to do. Giving their fans the music that moves them and makes them feel emotions that much more. I caught myself getting lost in the Capital Cities performance. Feeling good, feeling inspired, feeling alive.
