Haaaaaaaay haaaaaaay! Thank you for all the reminders and check-ins the last couple weeks to make sure I was alive and hadn’t forgotten about my weekly duty to bring you new tuneage. You sure know how to make a girl feel needed! I assure you all that I didn’t forget but I didn’t want to half-ass it since I had no time to really curate a playlist of bangerzzz. As one of my favorite legends (pictured above looking like Post Malone) says:

Never half-ass two things, full-ass one thing.

Soooo, I full-assed work and class the last couple weeks and now it’s time to full-ass my blog for the day. As a special treat I’m bringing you an extended weekend playlist; 30 tracks!! A mix of brand new finds and tracks from the last few months that haven’t made my lists but that I lurrrrve.

It’s the freakin’ weekend. Get it,

xo

HUGE Wait And Scene announcement!!! I’m heading to Austin, Texas for my fourth annual SXSW in less than a month!!!

This is my absolute favorite event of the year for so many reasons and I feel #blessingsonblessings that I get to do it all again in 2016. I don’t like to let too many people know that this is happening until I cue up a lodging situation because, as any of you who are familiar with the event know, regular old hotel rooms go for upwards of $1000 a night during this festival and everything sells out months in advance. Even if I was a millionaire, I don’t think I could justify that ridiculous opulence. I’m fine surrendering my ‘gram lifestyle flex in order to try to find a place to lay my head and my massive suitcase for much (MUCH) less money; My only requirements are that it’s near all the downtown party action, reasonably safe, and not disgusting ie. not filled with animals and doesn’t smell like poo. I’m pretty easy to please! Last year I was staying in a house owned by a few too many college boys and this year ya girl is staying a ROOM with seven strangers of various ages and genders. This could be a living nightmare or it could be the best week of my life, only time will tell. The things I’ll do for the sake of live music, tacos, and party vibes! …No, not that… Eww, not that either.

In the upcoming weeks, I’ll hit you with lists of the artists I’m excited to see but most of them have been on these Wednesday mixes. Plzzz start sending positive Southby roomie thoughts my way and enjoy this week’s playlist!

P.s. The first track hurts my vocal cords and my professional opinion is that singing like that is a reeeeeally bad idea. Do not try that at home, kids.

P.s. The cover pic is me dreaming up fire ‘fits for Austin.

Caaaalifornia loveeee.

Fresh off the plane at PDX late last night and home from a perfect five days in Cali. By the last day of my short ocean vacay, this Oregon girl was finally adjusting to 80+ degree temps and that unusual, persistent big ball of fire in the sky. My ghostly white skin has “tanned” to a nice shade of eggshell and according to my coworkers, my hair is somehow more blonde than it was a few days prior. I picked up a nice arsenal of vintage jorts and a couple pairs of leather motorcycle boots in LA so I’m fully prepared if any music festival responsibilities come my way…like, verrrry ready so feel free to hook it up with any of your connects. I promise to be on my best behavior and I’ll even don a flower crown if those are still part of the music festival starter kit.

A wise woman once said:

A bad bitch can play the part of a nerd, but a nerd can’t play the part of a bad bitch.

TRUUUUUUE. Very wise. Alright, fine. I paraphrased and butchered a famous quote to suit my lifestyle. Feel free to quote me on your ‘grams.

Happy WAS Wednesday, friends!

P.s. That new Drake though…”I’m out here lookin’ for revveeeeeeenge.”

Hello, how are you? It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry…Last week, I had my post published by about 10 pm on Wednesday; this week, we’re definitely well into Thursday afternoon. Siiiggh, c’est la freakin’ vie! I feel like Wait And Scene Whenever-I-get-around-to-posting doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. This WAS Wednesday title is staying and you’re going to have to deal with the fact that some weeks ya’ girl just doesn’t have the Tuesday night time. Why so busy? Well, don’t feel too sorry for me but I’ve been putting in lots of extra hours to get my work done so I can peace out to California for the next five days. Yes, I just got back from nearly a month in Cali in early January. No, I’m not sick of sunshine and beach vibes. Yes, I will most definitely be eating copious amounts of tacos, frolicking on the beach, and thrift shopping with the stars. I’ll be sure to update you on the celeb “cool teens” who look like they’re thirty that I run into while bartering for ALL OF THE JORTS at my fav LA Flea Market. Last month @Jortsmanship took note of my stellar Jortsmanship and commented on my Insta’ photo so that’s all you could really ask for in this life.

This week’s jams are best enjoyed in a pair of your finest cut-off jeans; bonus points and extra playlist enjoyment if you’re rocking denim-on-denim in a very classy, Americanized version of the Canadian tuxedo like my dude Chuck.

P.s. There was another new FLUME track this week and it is reaaalll nice if you haven’t heard it yet. Also, I checked and Kučka is not the girl from NAO even though they sound identical. WOW.

I just got home from working nearly 13 hours so I’m not feeling particularly chatty but this was a great week in new tuneage so here I am on a Wednesday night, about to tell you a story and post another solid playlist. All for the love of music!

As most of you know, I have a pretty fun “real job” working with hilarious kid-lets. Well today, the BEST thing happened at our morning teaming meeting; I was handed a new referral for a nugget who has the same name of one of my favorite rappers, like, his real birth certificate name is that of a popular hip hop artist. For privacy/HIPAA’s sake, let’s call him DJ Khaled. Note: this is not his name and Khaled is not one of my favorite rappers but this little nickname will make my story-telling easier. Since this morning, all I’ve been thinking about is how fun the addition of a munchkin with a rapper’s name is going to make my job.

Where’s Jenna? Oh she’s at DJ Khaled’s ’til 3.

Whoaaaa, you clearly need to monitor DJ Khaled’s sugar intake.

Busy, busy day of appointments. Brian at noon, Steven at 1, and DJ Khaled at 2.

I heard DJ Khaled was a real little jerk this week.

Hi there, can I please speak with DJ Khaled’s mom or dad?

This is going to be reaaaaaaal entertaining. It’s one of the greatest work related wins so far in 2016. Very KEY to my laughter and happiness.

These Wednesday playlists are also very key to my week so, in the words of a very wise DJ, “They don’t want you to jet ski”. Whoops, wrong quote. I meant to say, “Annnnoooother one.”
