While Amanda Rae, Mitchell, Jared & the crew were shooting the shows, I broke off to drop into the Filter Magazine Yacht Club Party
. The Blackouts, Atiba & Ako Jefferson, were DJing and ya know we gotta give the OTW crew
all the love. I finally got to meet Brian from Leg Up!
, too. I've been texting and emailing with that guy for a year at least and never met him face-to-face. Oh, technology. I guess my favorite part of the afternoon with Ako & Atiba was watching as the first notes of "This Charming Man" spilled from the speakers and a pretty mellow crowd hit the started to boogie. There was partner dancing. Turn on The Smiths and the next thing you know, a little model-looking-hipster girl is being twirled around the floor by a thug-life dude with a shaved head.
LA's Active Child also dropped in for an ephemeral set. As much as i love a good fist pump, it was the perfect pretty moment of music.
Eventually, it was time to high-tail it back to the festival venue for the night bands. Plus I needed to pick up all the yayhoos that I dropped off earlier. I'm such a good friend. I should get a medal. I digress. Anyway, do not believe the blue dot in your iPhone GPS in the desert. I ended up in Stab-ville. This is where they bury the body.
