Miles Kane

Last night at the Arctic Monkeys gig, I discovered a new act: Miles Kane.

Hailing from the UK, this talented and energetic man had the crowd going crazy and dancing along to his songs, some of which were reminiscent of that old 60s rock vibe. I loved it, my best friend loved it, and I hope you will too!

*Disclaimer: this is not a concert review. Just a post about discovering some new music.

Cris Cab: One Thing

New artist Cris Cab drops his first single ‘One Thing’ which is produced by his mentor Pharrell Williams. Definitely a track to chill to during Summer.

The Layover: New York

Anthony Bourdan’s television show ‘The Layover’ offers a how-to guide to exploring popular cities during an unexpected air travel layover of 24 to 48 hours. A great concept, especially if you’ve been stuck in the same situation, staring lifelessly out the window of your gate waiting and wondering. The travel show also provides a contemporary list of must-do items to anyone looking for something to do on a weekend trip to an unknown city.

Check out this episode in its entirety of New York City!
