Freak show festival 2012

I went to Freak Show Festival, a 3 day electro/psytrance music festival out in the La Jolla Indian Reservations. I went with my bestfriend, Ron, and our family friend Mariska.

SF trip

Nothing excites me more than an impromptu trip out of Los Angeles, especially if it’s a trip up to the bay! I usually tend to hit up San Francisco at least once a year, it’s one of my most favorite cities to visit…

img_1650 The next morning we headed over to Squat & Gobble for a nice breakfast before we hit the road back to Los Angeles. It’s crazy because I recently heard that Squat & Gobble was destroyed by a four-alarm fire :[

It was a refreshing and stress-free adventure to SF, can’t wait to go back.

Instagram’d – music and hardware

I had a pretty exciting week on Instagram…
After work, I was invited to GLK’s album release show out in Downtown LA.
Poolside performed across the street from my job at Chiat/Day’s 5353\\\ Music\Art\Festival. It was awesome seeing my buddy, Turbo Tito aka Filip, perform. It’s  was my first time seeing the group live.
Besides all the musical surprises, I was gifted a WeMo from Belkin to see what creative stuff I can come up with. Really excited to get my hands on this piece of tech! It’s the spark to home automation.

Passion pit @ red bull sound space

This week I got the opportunity to see Passion Pit perform at the Red Bull Sound Space via KROQ studio. It was an incredibly intimate set Passion Pit performed, a huge difference  from their performance the night before which took place at the Hollywood Bowl…

Passion Pit performed a handful of their classics, including “SleepyHead” & “Little Secrets”, as well as songs off their latest album, Gossamer, including “Constant Conversations,” “Take A Walk” and “Carried Away.”
