SUNSET JUNCTION

SUNSET JUNCTION


It was hot. The sun was beating me at a game of sweaty ping-pong. There were a lot of interesting sights, smells and sounds. I saw the longest nipples on a guy… and there were two guys each with matching nipples. I wish I had gotten a picture of them. They were long. I guess the proper comparison would be a miniature version of saggy boobs on a 90-year old twin grandmas who did a lot of vaudeville lesbian porn. I ate some food. Corn on the cob with some butter, chili powder, salt, Parmesan cheese along with some other assorted herbs and spices.

All in all the day was okay until the end. I didn’t get to see as much music as I’d like to have seen. Got there later than I wanted to… mainly because I don’t wake up until noon and because I got lost trying to find parking. So, I missed Castledoor.

Castledoor- Fall Apart

But, that’s okay. They are a band from Los Angeles. So, I’ll be sure and catch them.

When we got there, caught the end of Bodies of Water. I like them. But, they didn’t seem to have much of a crowd. I guess everyone was wandering around looking for food like me.

Started drinking after I ate. Heiniken was giving out free samples of their light beer… which was refreshing, but kind of lame. Beers were 7 bucks in the main area of the festival. But, if you went to any of the bars encompassed within the festival area… they were cheaper. Not by much, but cheaper nonetheless. Had a beer at Cafe Stella. I love that place. I have no idea when I will be able to go back there since I am sans girlfriend at the moment and it’s not the kind of place you go by yourself or with a non-romantic friend.

Walked back over to the main stage area. Drank some bad sake. Met up with some other lethiferous individuals. Just kidding. They were friends of mine. Headed over to El Cid for a bunch of drinks. Saw some strange faith healer dude who was using his magic to feel up a couple of unsuspecting females distracted by his cheesy sharktooth necklace, salt & pepper chest hair and his leathery skin.

After my trusty cellphone alarm went off, I knew it was time to see the band that I came for. Menomena. I’ve wanted to see them since I bought their first album on a friend’s recommendation back when I still lived in New York. As soon as I saw that the album was a flip book as well… I knew I was going to like them. Very unique sound.

And one of their videos… a crazy one, too. For the song, “Cough, Coughing”.

So, after they finished their set; we headed back over to El Cid. More drinks. Some shots. Some talk of eating bacon-wrapped hot dogs. Communication confusion. Talks of going to see Broken Social Scene. Group got separated. Things broke off. Lights went out in my head. Barely saw any of the band over the humming in my ears of a sting.

Broken Social Scene- 7/4 (Shoreline)

I left shortly after that. The crowd was too thick. My feet were dragging. I really wanted to stay and see Antibalas (a band I will cover in a Northport Corner down the line). But, I couldn’t muster up the energy nor the will to have fun anymore. I was drained emotionally, physically and mentally.

Note to self: Next year, go a little later… no bad sake and wear shorts. And remember to pay more attention to people around you.

Awesome.

I’m really diggin’ Music Go Music‘s Light of Love EP. Especially the song, “I Walk Alone” (buy it!). Rumor is, the lead singer is in the equally awesome band, Bodies of Water. I like new things that sound old. Future-retro, if you will (I will!).
