While we weren’t looking, 2014 flashed before our eyes. It didn’t feel, at all, like a slow progression, one year dipping slowing into another, transforming the final digit of another calendar year.
But somehow, unsurprisingly, we’re staring down the barrel of another brand-new year.
And while there were a lot of things we finally took hold of this year (like dumping that terrible boyfriend, nabbing the job of our dreams and finally paying down some of our college debt), we still have a little more than a month to take care of everything we haven’t had the chance to do yet.
One example? We haven’t nearly been to enough shows, done enough dancing nor worn enough neon.
Thankfully, there’s still time to change that.

The Head and the Heart
Three of The Head and the Heart’s biggest singles have pulled in more than 30,000,000 plays on Spotify, so you can expect they’ll be playing “Lost in My Head,” “Rivers and Roads” and “Down in the Valley” during their December 15 stop off at The Masonic.
