Coachella Music and Arts Festival 04/15/12 Empire Polo Fields - Indio, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito For the final day of my first Coachella weekend I arrived to the Empire Polo Fields much later than I had the first two days. I could tell by the time that I was to the Beats Antique tent that the energy had changed.

Coachella Music and Arts Festival 04/13/12 Empire Polo Fields - Indio, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito There was a reason I have always avoided Coachella and that reason is the sun. Fact is my white ass doesn’t do so well out in the middle of the desert. So it is fitting that my first trip to Coachella felt more like my hometown of San Francisco versus the Palm Desert. Strong winds, sporadic showers and thick fog were a downer for everyone but me. But enough ... Read More

Phish – Festival 8 10/30-11/01/2009 – Empire Polo Fields: Indio, CA Words/Photos/Videos by Reverend Justito Sunday morning/early afternoon at Festival 8 was nothing short of perfect.  I made my way to the venue pretty early in hopes of getting an 8 shaped donut and coffee along with a free scoop of Phish food in exchange for a busted old cell phone.  While I managed to get my ice cream, I never made it into the 45 minute line for a free donut and coffee.  Why ...
