2019/08/28 Dave Dresden at Root Society and Dave b2b Afik and Alvin on BAAAHS DJ Art Car
π 2019-08-28 01:01 in Bm, Clubbing
This year, we had the chance to have Dave Dresden playing on the playa, which for Afik, Alvin and I, was a mere few weeks after we saw him play at the Gorge in Washington for AGBT Weekender.

Dave first played on the Root Society Art Car which we had to locate on the playa to find him by biking randomly and hoping to find it :)

We eventualy succeeded

After his set (the end of which we listened to by biking next to the art car so as not to abandon our bikes somewhere random on the playa, we migrated to BAAAHS, where Alvin was playing and Afik was going to take over. He however had the treat to have Dave do a b2b with him, and it was a great set




lovely unbreathable air :)

This year, it was a beautiful flight to BRC, so I made a small detour by Tahoe and Reno:

2019/08/23 Google San Jose

In my quest for visiting Google buildings, I knew that we had a few buildings in San Jose, CA, but they were so close that I waited until I happened to be driving nearby. I did some evening, and found they were contractor buildings for support and shopping express from what I could see:

2019/08/09 SayMyName at Pure Nightclub
π 2019-08-09 01:01 in Clubbing
I generally avoid going to Pure, which is a shame given how close it is to my house, but the searches at the entrance take forever and are a serious turnoff. Not to disappoint, they took 10mn+ to take my entire outfit apart and told me I was somehow not supposed to bring a small point and shoot camera in. Uh?

As for SayMyName, trap is typically not my music, but I heard him at EDC and he played an interesting mix of trap with a few trance songs here and there, and put on a good show in general, so I figured I would go check him out. Sure enough, he was quite energetic and put on a good show:
