weekend thoughts...

Happy weekend, TIOJ world!! Whether you're up in New York at CMJ, enjoying a lazy fall weekend around DC, or anything in between, we hope you make it a great one.

Your Weekend Jam: Good gravy, the newest jam from Penguin Prison is so catchy. Catch him with RAC at the 9:30 Club on Sunday night!

TIOJ Thoughts: 

A way to avoid phones at concerts? Color us intrigued.

Have you all read #GIRLBOSS yet? I devoured it this week and am #OBSESSED.

Drunk J Crew models. 

The worst of the worst in concert goers -- someone threw an open can of beer at country singer Dustin Lynch’s face. Um, what?

Free! How Jessie Ware’s demo “12” didn’t make it onto her next album is beyond me… talk about a sultry song.

And in case you missed it: We chatted with RAC (eeek!) in anticipation of their show at 9:30 Club!!

The playlist below contains some must-sees, both from the festival-goers themselves and from us envious ones holding down the fort at home! Press play below and take a listen.

Be sure to get the latest from TIOJ at CMJ -- follow us on Twitter and Instagram to stay up to date!!

{THROWBACK} "irreplaceable"

I am very much enjoying DC-producer Lindsay Lowend's remix of Queen B's "Irreplaceable." The remix has the right amount of Nintendo-sounding beep boops (technical term) to add a poppy and care-free vibe to this originally emotional tune.

And the original in all of its "to the left, to the left" glory:

{THROWBACK} "i'm comin' out"

Remember that lotion commercial from about 15 years ago where the belly button is singing "I'm Coming Out"? Well, that song was on a recent episode of one of my many shows (Scandal), and I got to googling... and found out that it was written and performed by the great Diana Ross. Who knew?? Certainly not I.
