So, this past Saturday was the Pasadena Music Festival. And we gotta say that it was awesome! There was great energy and good vibes all around us. We only got to catch two shows though, because we both had to work but they were both a treat. The first stage we visited was Grimes at the Pasadena Playhouse. She is really sweet and she interacted with the crowd a lot. At one point a fan jumped up on stage with her and she allowed him to stay up there with her when security tried to come and get him. Her mixture of experimental beats and sweet seductive vocals definity lure you in, she had the crowd going. After her show we headed over to Old Town Pasadena to catch Grouplove. The stage was so crowded! Grouplove was hands down the show to see that evening. Luckily, we managed to squeeze into the front area so we had a good location with a clear view of the stage. Grouplove really rocked on, everyone there were so pumped. There was jumping, dancing, singing, and crowd-surfing! They even came back and did an encore in which they sang Tongue Tied mashed with the great Whitney Houston's I Want to Dance With Somebody, and lastly they sung Colours.
The festival also had food trucks, which is always a plus because we love them. We were also surrounded by restaurants and bars which was great, too. At the end of the night, we ended up at Barney's Beanery for some dinner and drinks. Overall, it was a great time! We hope that you guys got to come out and experience it.
