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.”

MDBP 2012

Mad Decent wrapped up the summer with their block party that was presented by Puma. After taking the party to Toronto, Philly, New York, and Chicago, the yearly party had finally landed for it’s last stop in Los Angeles…

Coachella 2012

I think I’m finally fully recovered from Coachella, guys. Going both weekends definitely wasn’t easy for me, but I got threw it and had blast…

img_0295 A couple weeks prior to Coachella, I spent tons of hours rehearsing with The Airplanes Boys. They grabbed an evening spot at the Gobi tent on Sunday and I was lucky enough to be handling the stage production for their set(hence the reason why I was there for both weekends).

img_8932 Our awesome publicists, Kristen, was killing it with booking interviews for the guys. I never ran around to so many interviews before, it’s was lot of work!

img_8873 Since I was fortunate enough to go to both Coachella weekends, I made sure to see as many artists as possible(and Dre & Snoop TWICE!). I’m super stoked that I was given the opportunity to work Coachella again(first time was when I partnered with Jason Bentley in 2010). I had a blast working with The Airplane Boys, they’ve made me realize why Canada stays outputting amazing artists. Super thanks to them for bringing me out.

Whether I’m in the audience making new FB friends or backstage watching A$AP Rocky w/ Rihanna(Seriously, IT HAPPENED!), Coachella stays being one of the main events I look forward to each year. This was my 4th year in a row going and I’m counting the days until Coachella 2013. Can you say “Daft Punk”?
