Looking back on Friday, the first day of Coachella, seems like forever ago! I'm still catching up after the 3 day festival that overstimulated all of my brain parts. Our team from La Models hit the ground day after day scouting new talent, listening to bands and Djs between 6 stages and tents, and drinking tons of water to avoid fainting in the desert heat. Cutoff shorts and a band-T seemed the way to go my first day not knowing what to expect. Boots were a good call to keep the dust out of my toes but after 14 hours of walking the grounds my feet were about to fall off regardless of what I wore. The pain was worth it...while work was super productive, I'm more inclined to talk about the music. In no particular order...these bands were on the top of my list this year: Yeasayer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Violent Femmes, Puscifer, Wu-Tang Clan, Of Monsters and Men, Vampire Weekend, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Band of Horses, Beach House, The XX, Postal Service, Knife Party, Hot Chip, the Faint, Passion Pit, Tegan and Sara, Jurassic 5, Bat for Lashes and Dean Can Dance...to name a few. Many more pics to come. Must sleep.
