Open road skies, the best skies.
A person free falling. “I saw God in the sky in the form of huge gold sunburning clouds above the desert that seemed to point a finger at me and say ‘Pass here and go on, you’re on the road to heaven.’”
This one’s for the hardcore Phoenix fans who know the the relevance of tunnels.
Wind turbines, best sign you’ve arrived in the Coachella Valley.
Welcomed us to Cali…
Beat me to the punch.
Can you hear the waves?>
Fort Rosecrans/Point Loma.
DAY 1 - 4/13
Setting up camp.
Cheesy H&M tent.
Breakbot! Disco samples galore.
EMA. #GirlPower. Was there simply to hear the opening line of this played in front of Californians:
Glorious clouds that kept us fresh.
James. I laughed.
Cute vertically challenged woman.
The Hoff causing a scene.
Fell in love with Jarvis Cocker. Can you blame me?
Black Keys. Spotted Jared Followill, Lukas Haas & Tony Hawk beforehand.
Amon Tobin’s ISAM.

Ahh rise & shine. #heaven
Azealia Banks! #GirlPower First official US gig.
The Big Pink
Stuart Price aka Jacques Lu Cont.
‘Starry bamboo’ by day, by night, and through film.
Prob took a million photos of the balloon chain throughout the weekend.
Major Coachella highlight: this scenery as Noel Gallagher performed ‘Don’t Look Back’ and 1000s sang along. Goosebumps.
Never thought I’d get to see Jeff Mangum live.
St. Vincent. #GirlPower
Pic by my bro.
Insanity at Sebastian Ingrosso.
1 second clip ftw:

The wonders of a Coachella campsite.
DAY 3 - 4/15
Breakfast of champions.
Charging stations, much improved since 2010.
Beats by Dre.
Frenchies Housse De Racket.
Le Butcherettes! #GirlPower Another major Coachella highlight: Teri running out into the crowd after their set, collapsing on the ground, then getting carried & cheered on by fans. Mexihomegirls be passionate.
Creepin’ on the Justice signing.
Disliked Fitz & The Tantrums so much I sat down most of their set…
…and noticed this guy’s awesome tatt.
Rant: Let’s please take note of this dumb photographer who continued to climb up on railings after security repeatedly told him not to and blocked people’s view. He also got into an argument with a girl in front of me who told him to get off.
Found this video which captured the entire thing: ‘You see that idiot talk’ is right. Side note: that is also Nick kissing a guitar pick and throwing it at your homegirl. Too bad it landed in the media pit and a photog gave it to a guy in front of me.
Making us sit.
The dolphin that would entertain us while Justice took 20 minutes to get on stage.
Freaked out with a girl named Emily “from the bay area” who made sure I was “ready to dance!?” Dance we did, as well as scream several lyrics in each other’s faces.
I was ready to collapse at this point and if people hadn’t been squished up against me, I’m sure I would’ve.
Somehow made it to Mojave stage and LOL’d at the contrast between Justice & Beirut.
Modeselektor…almost certain my fatigue made me feel higher than the people that were actually high.
Bizarre performance I came across.
On the road again. “The sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgundy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries.”
Driving through clouds.
Over 2,600 miles. Three people. Only $234.44 in gas. Has to be a record.
