This weekend is the annual D-fest music festiva l in Tulsa. Kate and I are going tonight, and I’m pretty stoked about the line up. Two of my favorite bands will be playing: Cake  and Mates of State . Many of you have probably heard Cake before. They sing “Going the Distance” which is probably played at every sports event in America. But there’s definitely more to Cake than than one song. Check out Comfort Eagle . I think it’s their best album. Mates of State is a husband and wife duo that has a sound that’s hard to describe. It’s definitely mellow and chill and sort of nostalgic.
Alright, let’s take a look at some links:
