Sunset in July

OK you may be wondering why I am posting about July...well Sunset in July is the new single from my favorite band, 311! If you are unfamiliar with them, their style is hard to explain. They can't really be put into a genre. I can say, when you listen to the band you instantly feel like you should be sitting on the beach (at least with their last few CDs). You may know them best for Amber or the updated versions of The Cure's Love Song. To put their style into perspective, they were featured on the 50 First Dates soundtrack.

To celebrate their new single and the release of their latest CD, Universal Pulse which is available July 19, Thoughts From Cali's Stephanie and I are heading to a taping of The Jimmy Kimmel Show tonight to see 311 perform. This will be my fourth time at the show, the second for 311. Yup, I'm one of those fans ;)

If you are interested, take a listen to Sunset in July (no real music video yet):



And in keeping with the theme, and the Pink & Green Thursday theme hosted by Pink Preppy Lilly Lover every week, here are some beautiful pink and green sunsets!

















Head on over and join in on the Pink & Green Thursday fun!

Hi - Am your Newest Follower via P&G Thursday -
nice to meet you!

Love those sunsets - I live 8 miles from the beach (except when we're at the family house which is one block!!!) so seeing sunsets on the water is a great pastime!

Thanks for sharing - get psyched for the 4th!!!!

I hope you and Steph had a great time at Jimmy Kimmel! That is so exciting and you know I completely understand on the whole concept of being a devoted fan.

I love the title of the song because my b'day is in July and sunsets are one of my favorite things in the world. I just took a listen and this sounds like such a great summer song!!
