more from the bottomless vault of curiousities which is my packratted life:
some ephemera from the last all day outdoor musical situation (aside from APW couple weeks ago) that i attended:
LOLLAPALOOZA 94 anyone?!
the lineup was my teenage wet dream:
beasties, smashing pumpkins, the breeders, surprise courtney love appearance, green day, flaming lips, GbV, luscious jackson, shonen knife, cypress hill, p-funk, L7, fu-schnickens("i am a true what..i am a true fu shnick"..omg must download NOW..sorry, i digress), black crowes, the verve.
to name a FEW. (fuck, festivals were so much DOPER back then.)
BACKSTAGE PASS, WHUUUT.
thanks to a family friend, my cousin michelle and i were 2 smartmouthed 15 year olds with all access passes, free to roam around and do things that included the following:
watch the beastie boys perform from the side of the stage
stop tre cool from green day from running us over in his golf cart
stalking the ladies from luscious jackson ( <3 )
spying on courtney love in billy corgan's trailer (they closed the curtains! caught)
SPEAKING OF MR CORGAN: i was completely besotten with him at the time (obvi) and as his 900 foot tall self emerged from his trailer i walked up to him, soaking wet (WHY does it always rain at these things?), and told him he was my hero.
then i gave him what i had in my pocket, which was a happy meal toy, which was mickey mouse in a karate uniform. (???)
he said thanks, you can have this:
shredded up guitar pick! with SP logo on it! i died about 300 times.
oh, teenage lightning...you had some highpoints.
