I am fortunate to have friends who have good taste. In food, in music, in people, in everything really. On the music front, many of my absolutely favorites were introduced to me by a friend. Case in point: Lianne La Havas.
My friend, Milli, hit up a group of us about Lianne La Havas coming to town...but Milli (and myself) would be out of town during her appearance UN DC. So, we did the whole pretending-we-are-still-in-our-twenties thing and drove to Philly to see her last weekend.
And it was AMAZING. The show was at World Cafe Live, and I have to say...that mug be my new favorite music venue. It was a GREAT space with a mezzanine, bar level a few steps above the floor and tables lining the stage and sound booth, proving us a place to set coats, bags, drinks, etc.
Now...the concert. The band. The talent. I was blown away. Lianne has an amazing voice, plays the guitar like it's nothing, and well, is absolutely swoon-worthy. Words won't do her justice, so check her out for yourself! Seriously. Do it.
