one of our fp girls was at camp bisco this past weekend, the annual disco biscuits festival in new york. her fiance does the lights for the band and she sent me some photos and video of what he did this weekend…it’s pretty amazing:
“johnny literally broke all boundaries in the lighting world this weekend! i am still in complete awe of what this all looked like. it was the most unbelievable thing i have ever seen!”
check out a quick clip of the lights in action- i’ve never seen anything like it either:
there was an article about the festival on the cover of the new york times yesterday – check that out here.
another fp girl showed me this the other day and i was amazed- i’ve never seen this before! rainbow eucalyptus is the only type of eucalyptus that grows in the northern hemisphere. every year the trees shed their bark in multiple patches at various times. this exposes the green inner bark which changes colors to blue, orange, purple and red as it matures – resulting in a rainbow of color.
so is it possible to have one of these in my apartment??? love.
i had the opportunity to watch two bands i love – edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros and dr. dog – from the area between the stage and the crowd, and when i was able to keep myself from dancing around all over the place i managed to get some photos :)
yeah, i know that i’m sleeping cause this dream’s too amazing
she got gold doorknobs where her eyes used to be, yeah
one turn and i learned what it really means to see, yeah
she’s a wanderer of the land. her connection to the earth beneath her feet is strong- she feels the presence of those who walked here before her. this comes across in her style through her worn, ripped denim, heavy brown vintage leather and hair tangled up in braids. turquoise, rust and natural colors that come from the earth accent her jewelry and accessories. the open landscape of the southwest calls to her with its wild horses, dust storms and fields of cacti that burst with beautiful flowers. she hears music in the wind.
coming to work this morning was really exciting – we left work on friday having packed up all our stuff and said goodbye to building 15 – and we came in today to a brand new building. i am still completely blown away – the people who designed and decorated this new space did an unbelievable job, and i am in awe that this is where i get to work.
i thought saturday at the xpn festival would be tough to top but sunday just might have… the weather could not have been better and the bands were amazing. i was fortunate enough to have a media pass so i was able to watch the shows from a spot directly in front of the stage – i have tons of great photos to share! but for now here are some photos of the atmosphere on sunday…
we took the ferry over to camden from penn’s landing – definitely the way to go! you get some great views of the philly skyline and ben franklin bridge.
i spy a free people bag!
jade of edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros! she’s adorable.
sunset during the dr. dog show- so pretty.
darkness sets in as robert randolph takes the stage to close out a wonderful day :)
yesterday was a beautiful day – perfect to spend sitting outside on the waterfront listening to some good music at the xpn music festival…
the walkmen and yo la tengo were both fantastic, and i got to sit and chat with diane birch (pictured above) who is a really talented and sweet person, not to mention beautiful! i will have that interview here on the blog shortly but today i’m off to the festival again- dr. dog, edward shapre & the magnetic zeros and robert randolph play today, i can’t wait!
