Last night after 10 hours of being at school, Ryan and I went to see Mates of State at the Visulite. If you live in Charlotte and did not go, you are sorely missing out. We were front row (I know, we are rock stars). Oh and the opening act, Other Lives rocked pretty hard as well. Well, they were awesome, I don’t know how much they ‘rock out’ in the way that you probably wouldn’t play their CD to pump up a party. Unless of course, you are having all of your Oakie hipster friends over to drink fair trade organic local wine and discuss current affairs. But I digress, the whole night was amazing. Thank you Ryan for another memorable concert experience. Love.
Mates of State is by far one of my top 10 bands in the whole world and at the very top of my favorite boy/girl bands (I never exaggerate). You know, the ones where the guy AND the girl both sing. If a band meets this description, I immediately love them.
I have compiled a list of my all time favorite girl/boy sing-ey bands plus songs that you might like!
If you are like me, you have probably had the same CDs in your car for the past 1-2 years (CATHERINE) so this list should help you revitalize that part of your life. Enjoy!!!
