You know that giddy feeling you get on a Friday morning when you take the day off work and it's still early and you're okay with waking up to shower because you're about to go to a music festival all weekend? I'm having the opposite of that.
Bottlerock. Friday we saw: Zella Day, Courtney Barnett, Cage the Elephant, Foster the People and Imagine Dragons. Saturday we saw: The Brothers Comatose, Portugal. The Man, Capital Cities, Young The Giant, The Avett Brothers and Robert Plant. Sunday we saw: Echosmith, American Authors, Trampled by Turtles, Awolnation and No Doubt. My favorites, pictured above, were Awolnation, No Doubt, Cage the Elephant and Trampled by Turtles. But in all honesty, Gwen Stefani might be overtaking Shakira for the place of my number one girl crush. MAYBE. She was incredible and this song makes me cry. And on that note, I'm going to go cry into my beagle until I'm in front of a stage again.
Kidding. I'm grateful. Who's coming with me next year?
