ROCK THE BELLS 2013, Outside Lands 2013 and More……………

 

 

Rock The Bells 2013 SF

By Orrian OXS

This was a gnarly ass lineup. WU TANG, BLACK HIPPY, A$AP MOB, E-40 &TOO SHORT, ODD FUTURE, TRINIDAD JAMES, JUICY J, RIFF RAFF, BONE THUGS N HARMONY, ACTION BRONSON, KID CUDI AND waaaaaayy more. It was hard trying to catch every good performance but it was worth it. Run around, shoot photos, grab a beer and a slice, then shoot more. Honestly, it was sort of overwhelming seeing that many awesome acts in such a short amount of time. The first time I was arrested was when I was 14 years old, and it was for stealing a Bone Thug N Harmony CD from Tower Records in Berkeley. Those dudes rule. Juicy J, Kid Cudi, A$AP and everyone else was perking, smoking and turning way the fuck up on stage. Definitely come next year if you can.

Outside Lands 2013: There Were More Attractive Women Than Men (a 10 minute write up) by ORRIAN OXS

Knight McCartney

 

This was a lot more fun than I imagined. I also heard an epic story from Tomek about how the Fear and Loathing article by Hunter S. Thompson was regarded as one of Rolling Stones’ greatest articles of all time and had nothing to do with the event he was sent to cover. I mention this because so many times I try to go to an event with a camera and my mental notebook to try to put together a story that envelopes exactly what the “scene” was like, I end up partying far away from the event and have shit for the zine, outside of party pictures that were taken at the same moments people were skating, surfing, doing art, etc.

This time was different. We got given the 3-day passes and actually attended every single day and went to many different stages and drank beers from many different vendors!!!!!!!!! With 8 stages spread way the fuck out, you cannot see all bands simultaneously rock but at least you can weigh your options. First night was owned by Paul McCartney. The guy (or Knight) is 71-years old and played for 3 straight hours!!!! No water, no bathroom breaks; just BEATLES energy and had everyone extra hyped. After the party is the after party. We got faded. Tee Off bar in inner Richmond followed by house party followed by who knows…….

Saturday was great. Started at the bar to milk the hangover. Met up with the VIP press homies; Tomek, Jen and Stacey G. Concert this day was Yeah Yeah Yeahs, J5, Phoenix, Nine Inch Nails and many more. Shit was epic. Boooooooze cruise. Drugs (namely Molly) and people in really good moods. Dude pissed himself right in front of us and was so embarrassed his boyfriend peed himself to show him nothing was Wrong with it-BROMANCE. This night was just like last night. Tee Off and then after party. Only my credit card was left at the bar tonight. Stoops.

Sunday the finale. Pizza for breakfast, ran into Pizza Party Larry, got into backstage and was kicked out within 10 minutes. Who cares? General population was raging just the same.  Hall and Oates, Vampire Weekend (they sound like Paul Simon in a good way), Matt and Kim, Willie Nelson and the Red Hot Chili Peppers!!! Shit. Overwhelming lineup with everyone psyched to be there. Running from stage to stage caused a few faceplants but no tears. This night ended with the longest walk home ever and the realization that I had caused myself to become sick (all the partying and lack of nourishment). I am wondering how many people slept in the park over the weekend. Anyone who did not make it this year, if you can, please come next year. It will be completely worth your while.
