[EVENT & PLAYLIST] First City Festival
We are kinda a little bit (ok a lotta bit) excited to be heading up to Monterey this weekend for First City Festival. It's only the festival's first year and it has already managed to rack up an amazing line-up. We're personally hoping the Monterey fairgrounds will be a small area, because unless either of us manage to clone ourselves or obtain some sort of super powers within the next 48 hours, there is no way we're going to manage to see everyone we want to see, and trust me, that's almost everyone.
To get us in the mood, and provide something to dance along to like idiots in the car on the way up (sorry in advance to anyone who Zimride's with us), we've created a playlist. So, if you can't join us you can at least spend the weekend dancing around in your underwear to good music.
Our top picks/who we're most looking forward to seeing this weekend include some old favourites; Devendra Banhart, Modest Mouse, The Dodos, Dr. Dog, Delta Spirit & Father John Misty as well as some new discoveries; Generationals, Jeffertitti's Nile, Washed Out, Electric Guest and tons more.
We're hoping that the fact the festival is being run by the same organisers as Coachella, that we won't witness Modest Mouse get cut off part way through 'Float On' this time. Can you tell Nicola's still bitter about it? No. Not at all...
And to any of our twitter/facebook/soundcloud/other social media platform friends out there - let us know if you're going to be there! We'll honestly meet you for a beer, even if we are going to be frantically running back and forth between stages all weekend. (We'll probably need it)
