Going to Georgia


Woohoo, we’re going on a trip! Our first of the year. Planes and everything. Days 1&2 are spent here. I’m so stoked to see a ton of great bands. Built to Spill! Neutral Milk Hotel! Mac DeMarco! Wavves! James Blake! Strokes! Mega stoked for the lineup.


Alan and I both got fanny packs for the trip. YEAH. FANNY PACKS. WANNA FIGHT? Luckily mine is from Herschel so you know it’s *totally ok* and definitely *not lame*. I can’t bring my giant expensive camera which is SUCH A BUMMER so I’ll have to settle for a nifty little point and shoot. A hat and sunglasses is always a good choice because I hear Atlanta is very hot. And then best of all, Shaky Knees has an app with a real-time festival map that uses your location. NEATO.


THEN, on day 3, we’re going to seek out some trails on the Appalachian Trail. It’s about 2 hours away from our hotel, so we’ll get up early, rent a car and drive out and see some natural beauty. I’m really excited, and really intimidated.  It’s gonna be sick. Neither of us has done a trip with these ambitions (two days of music festival and THEN hiking?) but we’re eager for the challenge.
