As the dog days of August are finally coming to a close, I've taken a few moments out of my day to really think about all of the awesome things I have to look forward to in the near future. Not only will the tolerable, 65-degree-with-a-light-breeze weather be ideal for taking walks through the crunchy, russet leaves in, but mid-September will also mark my first month as a college student. Besides personal accolades, there are also tons of shows, album releases, and movies that I'm bouncing off of my seat to experience! All of which will be throughly reviewed and blogged, nonetheless.
For starters, I'm going to see All Time Low this coming weekend. A great way to bid adieu to August, right? As if things couldn't get better in my concert-going sector of life, Between the Trees is coming back to town on the 10th. Having seen them multiple times over the past three years, it's safe to say that they are one of the most dedicated and talented bands around. They'll be promoting and playing new songs off of their new album, Spain, which just recently dropped. The single "We Can Try" has been featured on MTV.com. It's so strange watching a band in a crowd of twenty and then seeing them on, debatably, the most influencial music channel of our time.

Futhermore in music news, Flying Machines' self-titled album drops September 22! For all of my faithful readers, you're all very aware of the fact that I completely dig this band. They are phenomenal, without a doubt, and have nothing but great success awaiting them, if you ask me. The upcoming release is available for pre-order through Best Buy at: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9496654&st=flying+machines&lp=1&type=product&cp=1&id=2018603. I'm so incredibly excited for this album. It's something I'll be able to jam to all fall long and never get tired of; something that is extremely rare to come by these days.
Last but not least, a movie of epic proportions that needs to hit the silver screen faster! Youth In Revolt, starring the meek and mild Michael Cera. Honestly, who doesn't like the kid? The entire concept of the movie is genious, yet hilarious all the same. Between love and rejection, the creation of a devious alter-ego, and becoming the target of a full-blown manhunt, Cera will certainly reveal to us his clandestine, rebellious side this fall!
