A Weekend On The Mall At Landmark Music Festival

Thankfully, threats of constant rain proved to be idle, but the first ever Landmark Music Festival on The National Mall faced other challenges on Day One. Lines for the bar where festival goers could pick up beer, wine and nonalcoholic drinks were a hundred people long before 4 p.m. Since half the crowd spent entire sets in line, the crowds at the stages felt sparse (a plus if you wanted to squeeze up close) and attitudes turned negative before night fell.

Landmark Music Festival: Saving The National Mall

Washington, D.C., is bringing its music scene to a new level by hosting a full-fledged summer music festival this weekend. Landmark Music Festival managed to snag an impressive lineup headlined by The Strokes and Drake (a pretty nice testament to the diversity of taste in the District). New sensation George Ezra will also make an appearance as well as a variety of other acts from several, possibly surprising, genres including the Eagle Rock Gospel Singers.    The Cause   Great acts aside, that’s not what this inspiring music festival is about.

What saves you on long flights? For me, it’s getting sleep and listening to music. With standard ear buds or bulky headphones, it’s hard to do both at the same time and usually that is exactly what I want. Enter SleepPhones, the amazingly comfortable headphones made for sleeping. I honestly don’t know how these didn’t come into existence a long time ago or how I’ve managed to go this long without them. I tested out the SleepPhones Classic Breeze for the first time during our 24 hours of traveling from the...

Phuket Simon Cabaret: A Night With Ladyboys

Phuket has earned a reputation as a place to party so it comes as no surprise that they offer some spectacular burlesque and cabaret shows. During our visit, we got to catch a performance at Phuket Simon Cabaret where all the performers are ladyboys (although you might not believe it). The theater is housed in a giant purple and teal building lit up in neon at night. Their slogan says it perfectly: You will arrive relaxed but will leave confused as our performers are more of a man than you will ever...

Third World at Saint Rocke: Los Angeles

When we planned our trip to Los Angeles, I told our friend and host that all I wanted to do in California was listen to Reggae and eat delicious Mexican food. Her response was “The only reason I live in L.A. is to listen to reggae and eat good food.” Perfect. We got our reggae fix at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach. We caught the last song from Reggae Motion and stayed for True Press and Third World. The crowd was great; nothing but good vibes and it wasn’t super crowded. All...
