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.
