alternative title: an ODESZA DJ set would be soooo good
i just spent the past 3 days listening to odesza’s no sleep mixes at every possible opportunity. So, basically on my commute to and from work, in the shower, in the morning, in the car, when I’m cooking, and pretty much every other chance I have available.
Ready to rage every weekend? I’ve got you covered. Plan out how exactly you’re going to waste all of your money on concerts and festivals.
If you love heavy, bass-loaded music, hit up: Gent & Jawns, JAUZ, Riot Ten

If you saw a diverse group of high school students waiting at the airport eagerly holding up signs, barely able to contain their excitement, the last thing you would expect is that they are part of a Chinese exchange student program.
But on that particular Sunday afternoon, the host students indeed attracted a great deal of attention with their enthusiasm and vivacity.
Students at our school were hosting students from both China and Argentina; the cultural exchange proved very enriching, bringing together American, Argentinian, and Chinese students, a rare occurrence.
