It was so lovely (and a bit surreal) to meet some of my readers at this year's Isle of MTV. I forget people read this thing! Thanks for saying hi, guys!
Every June MTV takes over a square in front of a pretty church outside of Valletta and throws a huge, free, open-air concert: the Isle of MTV. Over 50,000 people attend each year, and past musical acts include Lady Gaga, the Black Eyed Peas, LMFAO, and Snoop Dogg (er, Snoop Lion?)
This year's lineup included Rudimental (an excellent, eclectic group from London's East End), Rita Ora, Jessie J and DJ Afrojack.

Rudimental was our favourite act of the night (but Jessie J was pretty badass too!) They have two lovely female vocalists, and a superb trumpet player. You might know them for this song but this song (Free) is my favourite. And they are so much better live than recorded! If you ever get a chance to see them in concert, go!
What are you up to this weekend? I'm finishing off the first half of my thesis, and we're hosting a Canada Day bash for our friends. Pancakes with maple syrup and Alanis Morissette for everyone!
Have a lovely weekend!
