Music Mondays: A Summer at the Bowl

Last summer, I went to the Hollywood Bowl to see Ray LaMontagne, Jenny Lewis and Blitzen Trapper. In addition to loving every minute of the music, I fell in love with the venue and the ability to enjoy a beautiful picnic and bring in my own bottle(s) of wine. Sadly, the show was at the end of the summer so I had to wait until the following year to revisit the Bowl. I vowed to go more frequently this year, and that’s exactly what I did.

Every Monday, I plan to share a mixtape. For my inaugural “nicktape,” I give you an 18-track mix of artists I saw live this summer at the Hollywood Bowl.
