Soccer Mommy: Tiny Desk Concert

Here is the description for this video:

Andrew Flanagan | January 18, 2023

When Sophie Allison says to our friends and coworkers assembled around the desk, “We’re finally doin’ it,” she really means it.

A little less than exactly three years ago, Allison had just released the wonderful Color Theory as Soccer Mommy; it’s an album that marked significant strides in her songwriting and production.’

A big year was doubtless in store for her and her bandmates… and we all know how that went.

The band’s visit to the Tiny Desk, scheduled for March 30, 2020, was the first of many to be canceled due to the pandemic.

That time in history required a lot of lemonade-making from all of us; we at NPR Music and beyond were lucky that, not too long after lockdown had sunk its teeth in, Soccer Mommy was the first to record a Tiny Desk (Home) performance for us.

It was an early, much-needed sign that life might still be waiting for us on the other end.

But, as we’ve learned well, there’s no replacement for proximity.

With all of that indelibly in mind, it was particularly lovely and emotional welcoming Sophie, guitarist Julian Powell, keyboard player Rodrigo Avendano, bassist Nickolas Widener and percussionist Rollum Haas, finally, to the Tiny Desk.

Their four-song set, with work from each era of Soccer Mommy’s catalog, is beautifully performed and contoured. Welcome back to your debut, Soccer Mommy.

Library Vaccines | BB Guns & A Shotgun

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was working at The BP Library, and some of my coworkers (like Mr. CF, Ms. MB, and several others) & I were giving out vaccine injections.

I do not know what the vaccine was for, I just know that there was a shot / injection in a syringe that we would give to each person, a different syringe for each person, but there was as second device that we each only had one of that we had to use on each person.


Family Drama In The Countryside

This dream involved me driving someone to the countryside to a house, I waited in my automobile while they were inside the house visiting whoever lived there, but at some point I walked to the door.

A young woman with light-color skin with brown hair was walking out the door as I was walking toward it, which scared her, I apologized, and she kept walking like she was going for a walk or jog.


An Active Shooter & Jennelle Eliana & Korey Coleman

Dream 1

This dream is unclear, and one or more characters changed throughout the dream without me noticing during the dream.

All that I can remember of this dream is that I remember possibly watching the news and possibly seeing live footage of an active shooter situation that happened during the day.
