Death Take Your Fiddle

Spiritualized shirt - Coachella // shorts - AA // jacket - ASOS // belt - hand me down // Harley boots - vintage // sunglasses - so old I can't remember // jewelry - vintage

Oh this shirt.. So I went to Coachella for my first time last weekend (weekend one) and have finally fully recovered. I've been a half zombie and unable to get a good night's sleep for the past week (got back home Monday afternoon). Coachella was really amazing and although many people hate it because it's such a *mainstream* music festival and there are so many 'bros' that go, I had a fucking blast. And I ended up meeting some really awesome people. I watched some amazing bands and was front-row for every performance I went to except one, which is very exciting! A few I watched that I can think of off the top of my head: Tame Impala, Dinosaur Jr (I got kicked in my right eye by some 12 year-old idiot crowd surfer during this performance), The Stone Roses, Violent Femmes, Spiritualized, The Make-Up, Blur, Metric, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Modest Mouse. 

My favorite performance is split between Spiritualized and The Stone Roses. So fucking good. Jason Pierce was AMAZING and blew my mind and I was crying half of the performance and I just never thought I'd see him in real life because he's never performing around here.. The performance was very spiritual (pun intended) and very surreal. I remember every detail of the performance perfectly and I will never forget it. Stone Roses' performance was UNREAL and Ian still has that voice! He threw out his tambourine and asked me if I wanted it and I nodded and he tossed it to me and some chick next to my friend (who was beside me) snatched it from me! I was in such shock that I was laughing.. What a fucking terrible human she is. Out of pure luck, the drummer later threw out his two drumsticks and I caught one! I was shaking and tearing up from joy because I never in my life thought I'd get to see The Stone Roses live. I didn't end up with Ian's tambourine, but I did catch a drumstick which is enough for me (so is knowing Ian noticed me and wanted me to have the tambourine) :-)))))

Here's a picture of the magical Stone Roses drumstick:

Oh and I now have front bangs (a fringe I think is what it's called). Chopped 'em a few days ago when I was really bored. Woooo.
