Half Moon on the Island

Just standing in the area to get in you can tell its just a different vibe. A different vibe from the scenery and two different vibes from the people. The first vibe was my initial thought which was cool and wavy. I like that vibe. Its just the kinda vibe i needed in my life seeing how i survived a major cold 2 days before. The other vibe was irritation, confusion and slightly pissed *because of the heat* . 20170708_142421That second vibe came from the festival starting late. 1 hour and 45 minutes late to be exact! Granted it rained the night before so that would be the reason why…but festival goers dont care about that man. They just wanna get the hell in. Once we were let in, we wandered. We wandered around because there was no music playing. They continued with the original schedule which was the Big Quite Meditation. I get that they wanted to stay with the schedule but it was already a hour and change late opening … Just Get  Right To The Music!!! *Forgive me for I was grouchy by now*20170708_142644 But shout out to Essentia Water! They keep me hydrated for free all day and the behind the booth was major eye candy. 20170708_144356By now all stages are playing music and everything is going as planned. I hung out in the beach area for a bit with Kitsuné present La Plage listening to the tunes and soaking up some much needed sun but the really place to be during the was the Solaar Stage. 20170708_152657I, of course made my was over to it which was a geometric shaped dome with a gigantic disco ball hanging from the center. Just that alone would get your attention but the music pulled you in all the way. There wasn’t a time it wasn’t packed in & outside of the dome.20170708_152932 I eventually went on the hunt for food and found Loosie Rouge. I honestly didnt realize how much i missed grilled corn on the cob til i had theirs. In between dancing my way back and forth between stages i got a chance to check out a few performances such as the Tops,  Abra and Connan Mockasin. 20170708_185816As I scooted my was to the front of the stage to wait for Kelela to perform  Dj Larry Heard took the stage and he was just what I needed. He was joined by Mister White who voice was just melodic. The music they played felt like an awakening; just free and magical. They had everyone dancing. 20170708_194749People came from backstage to dance on the side stage to witness all the greatness that was happening. By now im hype. I danced through their whole entire set and im ready for Kelela to take the stage. 20170708_222900She was just as awesome as I remember from the first I seen her perform. This time I knew the words to the songs unlike the last time. We even got to hear her new single from her upcoming album so we got a real treat. 20170708_223538Unfortunately i didnt stay fot Vic Mensa because from my stage hopping I lost my IPhone and had to go find it. Once I eventually got it back I headed home. Overall the Full Moon Festival waa nice. I was a very very laid back fest which was something i wasn’t expecting. I may return next year depending on who the performers are.

Until then I got 2 festivals left of the summer so stay tuned and as per usual check out the Instagram @in_attendance & Snapchat In attendance for all the in real time fun!

Can’t Call It Decent, More Like Epic!

I can’t call it Mad just because it was FREAKING EPIC!!! The usual 2 days of music, with great people and AMAZEBALL performances. Day one started off with Neo Fresco & Fki 1st who got the party started.

Next Gryffin took the stage and as soon and he got into a groove Mother Nature  (this bitch!) decides to provide us with rain…And  not just a regular shower, a freak wind pushing down pour for about 20 mins. It got so bad that the shut shit down and told us to vacate the premises. Did we listen? HELL NO! We stayed and banded together like the music lovers we are. Some rushed the field with security chasing them. Eventually they gave up and so did the rain. Fully soaked we ran back to continue the party.

Next up was Alison Wonderland who was great. Then Tory Lanez who’s set a sat through because I needed to save my energy for the evenings main attractions. Dillon Fucking Francis open his set with the Pokémon theme song. I truly fall in love with him at that moment.
image

I’m pretty sure you could here us screaming “Pokémon” 3 block away. He continued to set fire to our asses track after track he played. Last but not least DIPLO!!! Of course he kept us dancing till the very last minute.

Day two started off with Boombox Cartel and next up was Big Wild. I enjoyed him tremendously. He was what I like to call the conductor of the Groove Train.
image

It’s like he takes you on a ride and you don’t wanna get off. He brought out the drum machine , a keyboard and even whistled on a track…To me that was hot! I appreciate the little things. Now Party Khan, Party Khan, PARTY KHAN!!! The link up of Party Favor and Valentino Khan was the best thing ever. I don’t think I danced so much in a short period of time it was amazing.

If could afford to go to every show they play at I would, it was that good. Slushii hit the stage next. I was my first time hearing him play and I will say I enjoyed what I heard. Making her way back into the music world after a bit of legal stuff was Ke$ha or what I like to call her Miss Thickness. She looked amazing. I mean expected nothing less but she put in a bit of weight and it went to all the right places.
image

While she performed I mostly stood there in awe of her legs. Her thighs made me jealous. After the beautiful Ke$ha was Boi-1da. Now to my knowledge he is one of Drakes producers and he started his set playing the 6God. I thought it was just going to be the Drake hour which no one would ever complain about but Drake actually appeared and performed.
image

When I say the crowd went wild, they went there and beyond when he hit the stage. He gave us the best surprise of the day. We all needed a bit of rest after it was all over. Zeds Dead put us right back on the dance floor or shall I say field. The closers of the night was Dj Snake. He had so much freaking energy. I think he would have keep playing til the next day if they let him but sadly they didn’t.

However when we thought it was all over and done he came back with a bit of an encore. I could tell he really loves his job.

As per usual check me social media stuff @in_attendance or Inattendance and ENJOY!!!

I’m an Adult Now!

Have you ever done something that made you feel like a grown up or do something of what you think an “older”  person would do. Well courtesy of the mayor (THANKS BLASIO!!!) all New York Residence have the option of getting something called an NYC ID which grants you access to museums, social events, discounts and all types of cool stuff. My lovely Ride or Die & I went to the much glorified MoMa. With ID’s in hand we now had unlimited access into the museum as well as a year long membership all for free!!! Fancy Adult Stuff Huh? It was our first time at MoMa so we were extremely excited. Not knowing what to expect, we went through multiple open doors, up and down escalators, walked many halls and turned secret corners and found some pretty cool stuff. We were able to see many pieces by famous artist such as Picasso, Andy Worhol, Kara Walker and Henri Matisse.Two areas of the museum stuck out to me the most. One was a 2 wall filled video game which required you to turn back and forth to see as your progressed through each leave. The other was a room with a  movie theater screen with an extremely bright life behind it . Now there was much meaning to this peace but it was by pass because it was the best light to take selfies in…Yeah I know it’s sad but I’m honest. We spent almost 15 mins in there just taking pics of ourselves and then posting to social media. Overall I was a fun experience and I an looking forward to the next museum we come up.

Pics of some entertaining pieces are below and as always check the Snapchat ☺
