    Default Did you see all the acts you meant to?

    How'd your weekend go? Success, or failure?

    I think I did pretty well up until Sunday.

    I couldn't see Sheer Mag or Mbongwana Star because of the massive security fuck up on Friday, but I saw pretty much everything else that I wanted to see.
    This ain't no middle of the mall shit.

    No. It's impossible even though I am attending both weekends.

    It was great. We stuck around for DMA's and some dickbag yelled at my wife for not dancing enough. I told him to get fucked. He called me ugly. Then he fell down.

    Only missed two shows that I had planned. On Friday I missed St. Germain. Pretty bummed about it, but during The Kills, I had a moment where I suddenly got really dizzy and lost all strength in my legs, honestly felt like I was going to faint. Closed my eyes and focused on staying upright for the next few minutes and it passed, but I decided to take a break after that to get some food and just rest a bit, hence, no St. Germain. Se la vie. Then on Sunday I passed on Miike Snow in favor of leaving early. I was never hyped about them to begin with, I only had them on my list because there was literally nobody else after Beach House that I really wanted to see. I was so tired by then, and frankly, Beach House were so fucking stellar that I felt like they were the perfect ending to the festival. No regrets. Other than those two I got to everything I wanted, starting with 12:00 shows all three days.

    I missed my #1 set of the weekend last night: Death Grips

    I was with a group of friends and nobody wanted to see them, I took some molly and right as I was peaking at Sia - I had to make the decision to go by myself to Death Grips and risk losing my friends for the rest of night or staying with them to go see flume. In the moment I was okay with it and felt like it ultimately lead to me having a good time, but I'm absolutely gutted that I missed these guys...

    being alone, away from your group is some of the best times at coachella. you missed a good show. good vibes all around.

    yeah I love seeing shows by myself and had already seen a few at that point, but when I start rolling I wanna be with my friends and did not wanna deal with finding them after. trust me I'm regretting the decision today...

    Apologies for the delayed response. I only caught him WK1, and he played a solid, intense set.

    So glad I made the extra effort and stayed for all of Anderson .Paak on Sunday. We missed the first couple songs of Sia which was a small price to pay for the Dr. Dre and Kendrick madness.

    I had a hard time making it to the early sets on Saturday and Sunday. I was on the JW Marriott line and was on the bus at 12 hoping to see Ex Hex at 1:00. No such luck and I missed all but the last three songs. No problem, live and learn, right? I was at my stop at 11:20 the next day hoping to see De Lux at 12:45. There was only one other stop on my line. The problem was the vmt people wanted to wait forever to let the bus fill up. After explaining to them that this was unacceptable, we were finally on our way. After paying the rickshaw guy and having no line to deal with, I finally got to the Mojave at 12:40. Joke was on me because they decided to start 10 minutes early that day. They were still great.

    Stayed too long for Ice Cube and couldn't get into Rufus. Left too early at Anderson PAAK for Sia. Sounds like they were two of the best shows of the weekend as well. Go me.
