LA Lady...You'll Marry a Music Man

I have tons of catch-up blogging to do. Since the last time I updated with any "real" posts, we have taken several trips and attended lots of fun events.

In April (I told you I was behind on blog updates!) we took our annual trip to LA and Palm Springs for the Coachella music festival. Seriously, this festival blows Austin City Limits out of the water, and I'm a huge ACL fan.

The festival is held at a Polo Club. We camp for three days, stay up most of the night seeing great bands, and get up early the next morning (like 6 or 7 a.m.) because it's so hot when the sun comes up. They did away with the bloody mary bar this year, which was a huge bummer, but I was able to get my yearly fill of I Heart Spicy Pie Pizza.

I got to see a ton of the Indie bands I love that never really come near Houston, as well as some fun techno and rave-type DJs. We had fun dancing until the wee hours of the morning for sure!

Some of the bands I really enjoyed seeing:
  • Jay-Z and Beyonce (who I ran into the next day...she's gorgeous in person, y'all. And really petite, too.)
  • LCD Soundsystem
  • Deadmau5
  • Proxy
  • MGMT
  • Dead Weather
  • Hot Chip
  • Portugal.the Man
  • Gorillaz (such a fun show, just like you'd expect)
  • Thom Yorke
  • Plastikman (had an iPhone app that went along with his set....somehow)
  • Mayer Hawthorne
  • Little Boots
  • B.o.B.
