At Least I'm Not Stuck in the Crowd...

One of these days I'll be able to afford a trip (and find people that will go with me) to a big music festival.
Maybe even Glastonbury if I'm lucky.

But for now I'm stuck at home (or in my dorm). The only good thing about not being able to go is still being able to see the live performances via Youtube Live Stream (thank you technology!) Last year I stayed up to the wee hours of the night watching Jay-Z and DMB :) I can say that I still went to bed very happy, just being able to watch it through a screen. I am really really hoping they live stream Bonnaroo again this year, but now I'm chillin' out watching Cage the Elephant live at Coachella.....they're amazing! Last year one of my favorite smaller/day performances to watch was the Avett Brothers and Nora Jones' set. Watching it made my love for music grow even bigger. I'm super jealous of anyone who is able to actually go and experience the magic of these festivals.....although I can honestly say I'm glad I'm not dying in the heat and trapped in the mob of people.

So if you are a lover of music go check out the Coachella live stream on youtube. You can find a link on the Coachella website or there's a banner on the top of Youtube.

I'm off to enjoy the rest of my night dreaming of hot nights, bandannas, sunglasses and guitars.

Oh...P.S. I watched 127 hours tonight....there was a lot of screaming and me cringing.

P.P.S. Because I dont' want to make a whole extra post about it. Here's my mile breakdown from my run earlier.
