Photo set: Ohana Festival, Eddie Vedder, Elvis Costello, X, Mudhoney and more! 8/27/2016

August 27, 2016 Day 1 of the Ohana Festival at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, CA.

Yesterday was one of the best festival concert experiences I’ve had.  From the stellar line-up, (which seemed to be handpicked/curated by the headliner, Eddie Vedder) to the venue, to the crowd, it was a great day!

Photos from the Main Stage: White Reaper, Mudhoney, X, Band of Horses, Elvis Costello and Eddie Vedder.

*not pictured, Jack Irons and Lily Meola*   I caught Jack’s first set on my way back from merch but had left my bag/camera with my friend back at the main stage.  Eddie joined him during his second set for Shine On You Crazy Diamond.

Celebration of Lemmy on the Sunset Strip! Ultimate Jam Night #75 & the Rainbow statue!

He may have left his mortal fiber about 8 months ago, but his spirit lives on! With Lemmy Kilmister’s bronze statue at the Rainbow set to be revealed this past Wednesday, the preceding Ultimate Jam Night at the Whisky was also performed in his honor.  Dirty Machine got things off to a rocking start and Kraterface kept it going.  After the first 2 openers, everyone’s favorite emcee, Paulie Z, came out in some very Lemmy-esqe threads to kick off the rest of UJN!  Here are my photos of Ultimate Jam Night #75 and the badass bronze Lemmy statue in the “Lemmy Lounge” at the world famous Rainbow Bar and Grill on the Sunset Strip!

Photo set: Petal Drop LA 2- Jacarandas!

May 29, 2016, Lamar St, Los Angeles, CA

I received a text at sunrise on Sunday morning and excitedly headed downtown to the location of Petal Drop 02!  A temporary explosion of purple jacaranda petals were waiting for those who made the early morning trip to Lamar and North Main streets.  Workers in purple vests greeted everyone with various applications to work at the flower factory.  After I turned in my application to work in the Department of Surprising Adjacencies, I followed the purple arrows to the LA River where another surprise was waiting.  I just kept thinking, if there was a strong wind, it really would be as if nothing magical had happened.  Luckily, we had calm air with an abundance of magic and beauty.  Many thanks to the people who worked so hard to organize this event!  I thoroughly enjoyed it!
