The Mixtapes, is playing almost every weekend a month (sometimes twice in the same weekend), so we are definitely staying busy. It's been a little tricky adding a new job to the list that already included Skunkboy Creatures, blogging here, DIYs for A Beautiful Mess, and helping out with homeschooling Hope, but it's been worth it for sure. We've seen tons of local support and are finding our footing as we branch out into other areas. Plus, you don't even know how much your brain can hold until you learn to play 60+ songs from various artists! My memory is better than I ever gave it credit for!

Typically our sets run 3-4 hours, but last weekend we got to play a Nirvana tribute show with 10 other bands and it was a blast! We played six songs and ended the night with "Smells Like Teen Spirit"-- complete with a friend dressed up as a janitor (like the video opening) and 3 other friends dressed up as cheerleaders (I love you, Julie!).
So anyway, this is where you will find me on the weekends right now. It's a good time and a fun job. Plus, who wouldn't love being in a band with their best friend/husband? Thumbs up, for sure.
Happy weekend! xo. Katie
