This is a continuation of my previous Japan post…
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…
We had a blast at the festival, the vibes were perfect. We were most excited to see Les Claypool, the musician behind the South Park theme song. Since it was fleet week, the Blue Angels were flying above us which added a nice touch to everything.
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.
Today I decided to take my new cam out to lunch with me in Santa Monica. I wanted to test it out because I wasn’t too sure if I liked it(compared to my Nikon), but the only shooting I did was in my room. So I ended up meeting my to homies, Steph and Erica. We met up at Baycities for some much needed sandwiches.
Anyone who hasn’t been to Baycities, must go! So good…
So my Saturday started off with me meeting up with my friend Jazzi at her new pad. Jazzi just moved back to L.A. from N.Y. two days ago and was just getting settled in.
Jazzi was choosing some new furniture with her roomate since their place is a bit empty.
While they did that, I browsed through Planet Mag, one of the companies Jazzi works for.
The original plan was for us to go to Pinks, but like always, there was a super long line. So we got hot dogs from Carneys.
After stuffing our faces, we went back to the pad to chill.
Unfortunately, Jazzi was still suffering from jet lag and was ready to crash. So I decided to head out to the Henry Fonda to see M83.
School of Seven Bells opened for M83. I was actually astonished how well they performed. I’m so use to crappy openers. *coughGIRLTALKOPENERScough*
M83 was definitely a mellow show for me. Instead of being surrounded with the usual teens(like myself) that bounce around pushing/crashing/shoving/hitting/fighting…etc, I was actually surrounded by a more mature audience that stood and nodded their heads to the music. Overall, I enjoyed M83 a lot.
I had to leave the show early since it was 12 something and I had no idea how I was going to get home.
