Other Side

In this day & age of auto-play ads, hypersaturated social media feeds, and constant background levels of #FoMO, I find all the manufactured ‘hype’ is often greater than the actual experience.

Flume. Been keen on seeing this young Aussie producer live for some years. Blew me away, indeed.

Electric Forest was actually an opposite adventure, in that it exceeded expectations.  As it has come to be so revered and consequently grown in size, there were some inevitable hiccups as far as logistics went…but on our end, in our crew?  Months of prep & coordination paid dividends.  Overall probably the most pleasurable live music/camping combination I have ever been privy to.


Still in a bit of recovery mode — no amount of planning can negate the aftereffects of 24-48 hours of music&dancing spread over 4 days.  These dogs are b a r k i n g.  Suffice it to say, going alcohol-free vastly reduces that post-fest wincing & soreness.  #LookMaNoHangover.

A more complete reflection will probably arrive next week; turning right around into a hosting weekend here with family for the holiday. #Murrica.

Parting thoughts: that was a proper, proper way to kick off the summer — with a vacation.  What’s more, the boss encouraged me to find further time over the coming months to similarly escape our sometimes-grueling workload in the office.

No complaints; all gratitude & smiles.
