I have made it back alive from dancing in the deserts of California for three days straight. Had a lot of fun and heard a lot of good music, Rilo Kiley was awesome as expected and Prince rocked out hard as also expected.
Here are some photographs taken in the mayhem of scorching temperatures, techno, and five stages.
Night one, we definitely did not wear appropriate desert night gear and froze, but with smiles on our faces.
Day two, the temperature reached 102 and shades were a must.

Jenny Lewis ruled! Started at 7:20 and played through nightfall, I was able to get real close and loved every second.
Rilo Kiley played all the right songs.
Met some girlies at the campsite and caught a couple shows with them inside.

Banged on some drums, making sounds that echoed in the mountains.
It was a really good time, I loved all the music and enjoyed the company of all the Californians. Going to hit up a couple more festivals this summer and get it out of my system before I have to “grow up.”
In latest news-this week is f.i.n.a.l.s.-and it’s going to be extreme because everything is on one day. Wish Me Luck.

great blog! (just discovered it through Vintage Society).
I was at Coachella as well – it looks like you would have been right near me for Rilo – your pics have the same angle as mine! Weren’t they brilliant? My friend wanted to see MIA afterwards and the entire walk to the Sahara tent I was singing “BABY I’M BAAAD NEWWWS” at the top of my lungs!
