description:
My favorite road trip of all time was when a group of friends and I piled into a car to see Bjork in Chicago. We left bright and early in the morning, and arrived in Chicago in time for Chi-town style dogs and a walk to the pier. We spent the rest of the day riding on tandem bikes and perusing the downtown stores. Needless to say, Bjork was incredible, even from our nose-bleed seats. On the way home we jammed to Daft Punk, got pulled over for speeding, and made a 4 am Steak 'n Shake run. Although we went to see Bjork, it's the trip to and fro and the afternoon spent in between that stick with me the most.

So here's a mix dedicated to good friends, incredible concerts, beautiful cities, and unforgettable trips.
