There was some cool stuff going on at MOCA that weekend, so even though I didn't get a ticket to the sold out event (they were free), I went down there anyway to watch from a distance. The gunpowder art by Cai Guo-Qiang is still there, and I wanted to see it up close.
I was sitting outside those MOCA gates where Ariel Pink, Zola Jesus and Active Child were going to play, and some dude had extra tickets and just gave them to us. Woo hoo!
I really love the Active Child record and was really bummed when I bought tickets to see them in May and decided to go to Europe instead, but I gotta be honest - their stuff doesn't really translate across a live stage. At least I tried. And then I got shabu shabu. That ponzu is so good.
Lots and lots of people and it was hot out there. I was happy to be in the shade.
Later that day, roommate Haleigh's birthday! We all grabbed some Hawaiian food and headed to the beach.
I just happened to pick up a 5lb bag of Sour Patch Kids to take. Don't worry, I shared.
And have I mentioned I'm addicted to Scramble With Friends? Play with me! This was probably my best game ever. Joy is a super tough opponent!
