This week was a little crazy, I still can’t believe tomorrow is Monday. I worked a lot, but also had a great time being able to go home and see family for Thanksgiving, and celebrate two of my best friends (twins) birthday the night before. Catching up with friends from high school that are in different states right now was awesome, and I got to do that twice this week. It’s easy to forget how stressful work can be with friends that love to dance as much as I do.
On my normal routine walk to my favorite cafe/record store in Philadelphia, Milkcrate, I saw dollar records for sale outside. I was on the phone with my mom who was super confused why I kept mentioning it was freezing outside every five minutes. I shamefully admitted that I was outside scouring through the dollar records bin… “Oh no Cheryl, stop looking….dollars add up.” I said my reply which she already knew was following, “I know, but I…can’t…stop”. Thirty-five dollars later and 35 brilliant classics to add to my collection, I walked out of Milkcrate with a smile on my face and a tear in my wallet. I definitely broke out the Nile Rodgers classic albums I bought that night for a mini dance party at my house before going out with my friends to dance at the bars. Sometimes, there is nothing better than dancing to your own records in your room, and I can’t wait to listen to all my new finds.
Tomorrow is back to work for a crazy hectic week, but I definitely have some after-work fun to look forward to. Tomorrow night, Florida-based band Saskatchewan will be playing Ortlieb’s Lounge in Philly for…um, what? Only $5… Don’t mind if I do!
Saskatchewan’s music is super chill and dreamy, and I can’t wait to hear it live. Saskatchewan will be playing five more shows after Philadelphia on this tour including dates in North Carolina, Georgia, and ending in their home state of Florida in early December. Listen and download Saskatchewan’s music via Soundcloud below!
