it's my blog, and i'll pretend i'm at sxsw if i want to.

last weekend was the film portion of sxsw and the music portion is happening RIGHT NOW!
oh how i wish i could have gone to it all! but alas, i am stuck in LA.
[big dramatic pause, hand to forehead for effect
so to make myself feel better,
[regroup, smooth out skirt]
i've decided to throw my own music festival right here on my blog. 


so grab your dancing shoes and join me if you'd like! 
you can throw on your sunglasses and pretend you're dancing in a crowd full of tattooed hipster types,... 

...without a care in the world!

or maybe you're sitting in the grass, sipping pbr and chowing down a vegan corn dog on a stick {or are those only at california music festivals?}.  

whatever the case, you should totally rock out to this fun playlist i whipped up for the occasion. 
{some of these bands are at sxsw this weekend, and some are just favs of mine.}

and to simulate the actual concert experience, i recommend
turning the volume up real loud like!

but above all, have a total blast!

happy festival-ing!

  1. get crazy! hey are you going to coachella??

  2. We will do some proper partying tomorrow night. Promise. I wish I were at SXSW too, but at least you get to go to the Railroad Revival. I SO wish I had known about that sooner so I could have gotten tickets.

  3. woot !! woot !! Hope U and your Mister have an awesome weekend !!

  4. ok, reading the phrase "sitting down, drinking pbr and eating a vegan corn-dog" just made me smile from ear to ear. Glad there are others out there who appreciate the simple (and cheap!) pleasures of life :) Have a lovely weekend, lady!

  5. That's awesome - I am the girls in the polka-dotted dress - very cool.
    Happy festival weekend Kim!!

  6. This is such a good idea! Yay for a virtual music festival!

    PS I totally think we need an unemployed support group.

  7. What a fun post!!! The scene you described is all too wonderfully familiar to me, and your music selection is fantastic!

  8. I have absolutely no idea what SXSW is, but I LOVED te pictures!!!

  9. Kim! I just have to tell you that I LOVE your blog! It's my new little happy place that I go to when I'm feeling homesick. Thank you for sharing and inspiring! Love love love.


  10. whew! those pictures make me feel like I was there. can't wait to listen to the mix.

  11. Hi!
    love the post and the pics.
    We just started a blog about a potential/just an idea/so far non-existing hipster festival in Berlin -

    We want to create a profile also in FB and we were wondering if we could use your picture for the FB page???
    Thanks in advanced ;)
