We hadn't been to a show in a while, so excitement levels for Phantogram at The VENUE last Friday were off the charts! I dug out my best rock inspired ensemble, including my new cross necklace (street cred) and black knit jumpsuit (coolish? whatever, it's comfy) .

Phantogram is an electronic rock duo from New York made up of keyboardist/newest girl crush Sarah Barthel and guitarist Josh Carter (who is incredibly cute/easy on the eyes). For the first time ever, I saw an opportunity after the opening act to stand at the very front so I took my vodka water and parked it in the front row. Unfortunately, my drink was more parts watered vodka than it was vodka water, so I set it on the stage while we waited for the show to start. A busboy couldn’t tell the glass was full of liquid and spilled my drink all over my new suede pumps. Total accident, but I had to fight off the urge to go all Cher Horowitz on him about ruining my shoes. A lesson learned for me though, turns out suede shoes and bars don’t mix...who would have guessed?

The show was amazing though, I highly recommend seeing Phantogram live in concert when you get the chance! I have a feeling this duo will be hitting the big time soon. There are two short video teasers from the show at the end of this post. Enjoy!

  15. Oh, your poor, pretty shoes! So sad that they suffered such an unfortunate fate at the hands of a busboy, but you looked fabulous when you left the house, anyway :) I love the look of that jumpsuit- stylish and comfortable, too!- and the turquoise shoes really were a perfect choice, pre-water incident. Red lipstick suits you so well, too! Can't wait to see you tomorrow, sweetie :)

  17. what a super fun night Alicia! i just love Venue, besides the Commodore it's one of my faves to see shows at. awesome re-cap of the stellar night, you look HAWT lades!!!! adore the jumpsuit, perfect look for that kind of a night. comfy, chic and body moving ease.

    looks like you got right up front to enjoy the whole thing. rock star seating if ever there was ; )

    boo about the shoe incident though, hope they can be saved. i've had it happen before and also with vodka/water (my drink of choice as well!). i ended up taking them into the shoe repair and they sort of "dry cleaned" them and it ended up okay. you gotta try something, they are too rad to give up on.

    happy wishes to you for today's visit with the girlies, i'm really sorry to have to miss out on this one. totally kicking myself but know you'll have the best time...i see blue sky and that's a good sign! ♥

  28. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm
    assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
