I admit being jealous of you guys. All those festivals you guys have. Is there one every week in the UK or what?
Los Angeles is the biggest collection of people in the world who don't give a shit about anything. I like that. Anyway, we had the Sunset Junction LA street faire yesterday.. actually it's today too.. but I don't give a shit about the Sunday lineup, eh.
In fact, I barely cared about the Saturday lineup. Autolux had a shit sound and frankly their new songs sucked. The stuff from Future Perfect was great and I'm glad I didn't get back the the faire festivities after being underwhelmed by the first few new tunes. Blonde Redhead's set was too quiet. Shoegazey music really ought to be fucking loud. Those were the only two bands of DiS interest I watched.
Better was the soul stage. There was a hot 70s looking black chick with the coolest afro ever... looked like she fell out of a Shaft movie. Indie kids don't dance nearly as well as the people here. There was a Lisa Bonet lookalike I couldn't keep my eyes off.
I flirted a little bit with the glass blower chick and bought a $10 piece of colored glass I consider one of my best investments ever.
A gorgeous drunk girl hit on my buddy who was too stupid to take advantage of the situation. I slugged him the arm for his this afterward. I have to say gorgeous drunk girls are really the only true evidence for the existence of God.
So here's my best to worst list:
Glass blower chick
Soul act whose name I dunno
Standing next to cops with marijuana in the air
Cheesy carnival rides
Too many people (twice as many as last year?)
Shirtless gay men in hot pants (why are gay men always in better shape than the straight crowd?)
I probably should start a blog or something instead of blogging here, eh? But at least this way, there's an outside chance somebody will see this.
