I saw some of my favorite bands and artists this past weekend at Coachella. Passion Pit, where beach balls from the 99 cent store were tossed arcoss the crowd as the sun set, amazing, I got to hit two. Little Dragon was beautiful and Yukimi floated across the stage and sang like an angel. Jay Z was a religious experience for me, Beyonce came out for a duet of Forever Young, no doubt an amazing moment and fitting end to his set. I danced like crazy to Gossip, The XX, Dirty Projectors, Hot Chip, Spoon, Little Boots and Muse to name a few and sung at the top of my lungs during Florence + The Machine. She opened with Howl and I almost cried then brought out Nathan Willett, lead singer of (one of my favorite bands) Cold War Kids later in her set for a duet of one of my favorite songs of theirs Hospital Beds, I honestly couldnt have asked for more. Gorillaz were equally amazing as the rest and fulfilled my wish of Little Dragon joining them on stage for Empire Ants, a perfect end to three days in the desert.

I think the picture above tells it all, I had an epic weekend.

Just woke up to the skies pouring rain. I’d much rather it be snowing, snow is so much more beautiful and so much less wet.

Reason 218,237 why NYC is better than LA.

Recently heard The XX referred to as “hipster make-out music.” Hilarious because its so true but I’m not phased by it. Still cant get enough.

This song is dedicated to Conor Ford.

Forget The XX remix, Florence holds her own on the original version of “You’ve Got The Love” from her latest album Lungs.

This womans amazing. Her voice, her lyrics, her beats, I cant get enough.

One word, COACHELLA!

like a ray headed for the sun

Hearing Gang Gang Dance makes me think of Coachella 2009. The line up was released today, now I can hardly wait till april comes around. So many artists I am just dying to see and all in one weekend too – Dead Weather, Hot Chip, Dirty Projectors, the XX, Charlotte Gainsbourg, La Roux, Little Boots, and Rusko just to name a few that I wouldnt miss for the world.

heres a flashback of last year at coachella
