First City Festival
Last weekend we trekked to the First City Festival in Monterrey, CA. The Lineup was pretty awesome:
Luckily, we treated ourselves to VIP tickets so we didn’t have to throw elbows to get a spot or wait in long beer lines.
Capital Cities Dance Party: The best show of the weekend!!
A Creepy Jack Sparrow Look-a-Like doing magic tricks
Unlimited Carnie Rides.
Modest Mouse: They headlined the main stage on Sunday night and the sound was heinous. I don’t know if they were just really wasted or if the sound engineer was taking a disco nap, but either way, their show was a total letdown.
Neko Case: I wanted to like her, but she played just before modest mouse. Erik literally laid down and slept through the performance. Slow and boring.
The venue didn’t have VIP bathrooms or a VIP food area…c’mon people. Get it together.
Did I mention, drinking and swinging aren’t a good combination? (**Pay careful attention to the last 6 seconds:)
Then we rode the pirate ship.
I thought a fun house would be a more fun than this…
Then I ran into these nice Furries and they invited me to a speical party so I fed them some of my funnel cake. Mmmmmmm.
Overall it was a great time…we highly recommend catching Capital Cities live immediately!
