Is This Loud Enough?: RuPaul’s Drag Race – Battle of the Seasons


This post is dedicated to all my fabulous homosexuals.

 Gentlemen…start your engines…and may the best woman…WIN!

Are you a fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race? Well honey, I am! As I scrolled through my Bandsintown app on my brightly lit screen in the middle of the night, I quickly caught a glimpse of the name “RuPaul,” and instantly, my heart stopped.

To say that this was the raunchiest, most flamboyant, insane, and glitter-filled show of… ever (next to Gaga, of course) would be an understatement. Here’s how I made the best of that night.

Is This Loud Enough? : Top Ten Concerts of 2013

Hey guys! It’s your girl Yu Ling here! Can you believe 2013 passed by so quickly? As a tribute to one of the best years for concerts, I have compiled my list of my top ten favorite concerts! Check it out!

We’re going to speed through this list like Usain Bolt, like BAM BAM BAM CHICKEN AND HAM THIS IS WHY THIS CONCERT WAS INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE AND TOO LEGIT TO QUIT!!! I’m going to describe the concert in one sentence, give three songs (or more for bigger concerts) I enjoyed, and five words that I associate with it.

Honorable Mentions that just missed the list:

-Marina and the Diamonds


Where I discovered Charli XCX and danced the night away with my friends in an upbeat bubblegum pink atmosphere.

Songs: “Teen Idle”, “Primadonna”, “How to be a Heartbreaker”

Words: Pink, Girly, Bubbly, Exciting, Energetic

Is This Loud Enough? : Good Things Come In Threes – Atlas Genius, Family of the Year, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

The first time I heard Family of the Year was in my friend Kavin’s car. He was like “DON’T THEY SOUND LIKE A MODERN QUEEN?” Well, not so much really, but they were pretty good! So as I was searching the interwebs and pretending to work on my college applications (Mom if you’re reading this, that last one was a joke), I saw on my calendar that Family of the Year was coming to San Francisco! Being a concert junkie, I just had to get myself a ticket—not to mention the fact that the ticket was only $25, so a good deal plus a cheap asian equals a fun time (YAS!).

Last Genius

I don’t know what the heck happened with my camera here, but the photo turned out pretty cool, so here’s my hipster shot of Atlas Genius.

When I went to purchase my ticket, I found that Family of the Year was just one of three bands that would also be performing. Three bands in one night? A mini music festival with Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Family of the Year, AND Atlas Genius? Perfection. Continue reading

Is This Loud Enough?: Can’t Stay Away from Charli XCX

I was at a super-upbeat-bubblegum-pink concert for Marina & the Diamonds when I fell in love with the opening act, Charli XCX. What caught my attention were her shoes, because, well, shoes are the windows to the soul. I saw that curly fro-like textured hair paired with a ‘90s grunge outfit and five-inch platforms, and I instantly knew that girl was going to be good.

Charli 2 

When I found out that Charli would be in SF again, I had to get a ticket to see her. The show was originally scheduled for September, but was postponed later to November due to some reason I did not pay attention to. Continue reading
