It’s a tough Monday. Well all Mondays are pretty tough but coming back from Jazz Festival to a bitter Religion professor does not make it easier. I’ve always wanted to go to a music festival in New Orleans. As soon as I came to LSU, I made it a point to at least attend one during my freshman year! I bought my tickets to Jazz Festival a few months back and it felt like this weekend would never come. But may I add that it did indeed and finally come and it was one of the best weekends of my freshmen year so far. I was able to see Mumford and Sons, Amos Lee, the Avett Brothers, and the Low Anthem live. I saw a few others, but those are the bands that I particularly wanted to see. Each band put on excellent shows. They are each talented and engaging. I already knew and listened to the first three bands, but I was introduced to the Low Anthem at Fest. I was very impressed by this little Rhode Island band. They are known for the instruments they use and the versatility of each band member. Each person played a different instrument for each song. One person played a saw and one even put two cell phones together and made music from that. It was bizarre!
here are some photos and videos from my weekend!

P.S. it’s the last Monday of my freshman year, wwaahooooooo
Hope all of you have splendid Mondays and for you that are taking finals, good luck!!
