So Ellie killed it last night at the Doug Fir. I procrastinated and managed to miss the Knocks, but my delightful IPA and Ellie being spot-on made up for my tardiness. She really came alive during “Salt Skin” and “Lights” when she grabbed some drum sticks and started wailing away. Wish I could catch her in San Francisco.
here’s a ‘lil remix of my favorite song from last night:
My toes are numb. My ears are hot. (keep talking people) And change is in the air.

I woke up this morning, checked Twitter (zacharypryornyc) and saw that my beloved Ellie was performing a set at All Saints in Soho. Promptly found out that sponsor Kanon Organic Vodka was running a ‘lil facebook contest to give away some VIP passes. I entered by writing that “Human” was my favorite Ellie Goulding song. I won. Amazing. I had a really heavy work load today, so I didn’t get to stay long, but All Saints and Kanon set up a pretty fantastic VIP section. I had one of their specialty lemonade-mint cocktails before deciding that the vodka was just too smooth and delicious to need a mixer. Finished up with a straight Kanon on the rocks with a squeeze of lemon before running out the door to finish some production work. (while Ellie sang me out) I received an email minutes after leaving saying I was eligible to snag an autographed cd, but alas, duty called. Here’s hoping that I’ll be fortunate enough to have Kanon sponsor one of my upcoming jewelry events.
