This weekend has been somewhat like a burning man warm up here in Tahoe. Squaw Valley has been a destination for yoga fanatics and music lovers. With the Wanderlust festival taking place, it's been quite the show. Friday night kicked off the music with The Mutaytor's performing under the funitel complete with fire dancers followed by Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings. Sharon Jones made me want to sing. She has soul!Saturday, after visiting my PT, I wandered up to Gold Coast and checked out Jenny Lewis and Common. Michael Franti was supposed to play, but rumors are his appendix burst on Friday. Poor guy. Common took his place. Wasn't too sure how the Michael Franti crowd would adapt to Common's borderline mainstream rap, but I think they enjoyed it nonetheless. That's what you get when you've got a bunch of care free yogurts.Last night we watched some more fire dancers as the Mutaytor's took stage once again. Then it was Girl Talk who came with leaf blowers, confetti, toilet paper, and giant pillow balloons. I didn't know he used to be an engineer and lived a double life DJing and engineering. His performance started out with a mandatory crowd chant of "GIRL TALK, GIRL TALK" then he came out in his sweatsuit with the right pocket of his little kid sweats hanging out. He was full of energy and people went crazy when he mixed the Jackson Five tracks in his set. I kept it mellow with my crutch in the back, but enjoyed the show and people watching.The world's biggest game of twister was happening after Girl Talk in the village. I opted out of the game. Don't want to play twister with people who haven't showered in a while. I'm off to Gold Coast again for some more music action...I'll post pics and videos soon with a better update. Peas!
