If you know me, you know I was pumped for this. It was a chilly but memorable night of music seeing Neon Trees & Jimmy Eat World in the gorgeous countryside of Temecula, California at their Balloon & Wine Festival!

It was one of the most exciting shows all year to witness the kick-off of LANY‘s “The Make Out Tour”. Paul Klein, Les Priest, and Jake Goss played to a sold out room of fans two night in a row at The Troubadour in West Hollywood.
