Goldroom takes on Lake Michigan for High Seas Tour 2018.

Los Angeles' Goldroom, hits the waters of Lake Michigan for high Seas Tour 2018

Seeing a show on the water is a spectacle in itself.


As Josh Legg, also known as Goldroom, embarks in his fourth year of the high seas tour, his biggest yet, it is looking to be another smash hit with a couple of turntables, a lively audience, the skies & water, and of course, a boat.

"There's something special about partying under the sun. Being on a boat with the sun shining down, wind blowing in your hair – I can't get enough of it." And it seems that this basis is what drives Legg to do this tour year after year. As he spent most weekends growing up on boats, that time listening and growing in love with music gives this tour a very special feeling, almost nostalgic, when it's time for the waterfront shows.

As a fan, I've seen this tour come up on my radar (obviously in Chicago) two or three times now. For whatever reason, I always snoozed and had another commitment. Well, this time it is a different story. Saturday, July 28th, the French Horn Rebellion and Goldroom will set sail on the Anita Dee at 1 PM for an afternoon on the water to remember.

Goldroom has played at Chicago on various occasions. Some of the more notable ones would be Mamby Music Festival, Concord Music Hall, Primary Night Club, and another High Seas tour or two. The High Seas shows seem to have a special meaning to Legg as they "allow him to play whatever he wants, whenever he wants." Which means, in a DJ set, he gets to play from a catalog of his favorite songs, inspirations, and Goldroom material, at any point in the day or night. "I make music for this setting."

2017's tour included seven cities in North America, with an extension into Europe and then a finale in Croatia for Yacht Week. 2018 is nothing but a massive expansion upon 2017, going for big heights including 12-cities with multiples shows (day and night) including Canada and Serbia.

After listening to Daft Punk's Discovery, Legg explained "that record was the one that changed the way I thought about electronic music. Their instrumentals were emotional to me in a way that no one had ever created before." Legg certainly has a method of creating and cultivating "a very specific, special vibe." His goal for this tour, since its inception, is about bringing the experience of "firsts" to the fans.

It's with great pleasure to say this is not only my first show on Lake Michigan but first Goldroom show on a boat – and I assure you, it won't be the last.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
