I am Grateful

I was so lucky to go back to Coachella for the second weekend and see some of the artist that I missed the first weekend.  The second weekend seemed a lot more quiet than the first, but that was not the same on stage.  The music was still phenomenal!  I got to say hi to some of the guys from Jurassic 5.  They really put on such a great show the first weekend, that we decided to watch them again.  This time our friends invited us on stage, where I took some great shots of the crowd!  I am so glad that these guys have reunited and are bringing back some positive hip hop.  

I met up with some friends and watched Moby in the Sahara tent.  I ran all around and got some pretty good shots of the talented vegan musician.  He once told me about his favorite restaurant near my house called Cafe Gratitude.  As if I wasn't a huge fan already, I instantly fell in love.  He is so kind, smart, talented, & humble.  A friend of mine who was pet sitting for me mentioned seeing him at Cafe Gratitude on Sunday night, the day after his amazing performance at Coachella.  

The one artist I was sad about missing the first weekend was Janelle Monae.  After seeing her show the second weekend, I knew why I felt like I had missed something.  She really put on a great performance and I got some great shots of her sweating, screaming, and crowd surfing!  Not only can this girl sing & dance, she does it with soul & passion.  Her beautiful hair updo at one point turned into a huge lions mane and she continued to rock it.

 Here are some photos from Saturday and Sunday at Coachella!!  The Neon carnival on Saturday is always a super fun event, this year Clint Eastwood made a surprise appearence!  A few acts that I got to dance to on Saturday & Sunday were Hot Chip, The Xx, Red hot chili pepper, Grimes, Paul Oakenfold, Wu tang clan, Rodriguez (searching for sugarman), Vampire Weekend, Jessie Ware, & the dj duo that closed the festival down, Disclosure which was a personal favorite of mine.  I did not think I would make it to see Disclosure because of the terrible weather (windy sand storm) mixed with the 11pm time set.  The dusty storm made it almost unbearable but the power of music kept thousands of people in good spirit, including myself.  On that note, here is a song from the group that closed the festival down on Sunday.  Please Enjoy!
