Okay so finally got my act together. And without further ado here was my 80/35 experience.

First started off with Bitch

Bitch is a feminist, punk, super awesome band. I wasn't sure what to expect but I absolutely loved them. I hope to see them again.

After Bitch was Jessica Lea Mayfield.

Girl is good, and not to mention super cute, but it was quite a shift from Bitch. Still if I was needing some calm music for blogging or chilling she'd be it. Then the generator blew and cut her set a littttle short. Which also put them even farther behind. That was cool though because then we got to hang out, drink sangria and meet new friends.

(You remember Bear Face right?)
We also had the opportunity to listen to the we're-working-on-fixing-the-generator music and get our dance on.

(Mike's only dance move...which resembles butter churning)

Once the generator was fixed Blackalicious was up next. I stuck around for a while but then got bored.

So I decided to go get a martini, and jot down some things I wanted to make sure made it into this post before I was too drunk. After my martini I met up with Mike and Kim at Cab Co. , then eventually made my way down to meet up with my other friends down at the Locust Tap.

All in all it was a fun night of music drinks, bears and dancing in Des Moines! Can't wait for next year. 




  1. Haha, love that you were organised enough to write a few things down before getting a little too merry. I never do and sit there in my hungover state, head pounding, trying to piece together memories I wanted to keep! Anyway, it sounds like a fun night.

  2. so fun! love that you had such a great time!

  3. i want to go to a music festival thinggg. sounds like fun :)

    aaaand i am jealous of your half dome hiking co worker! i want to go backkkkkkkkk

  4. I love Jessica Lea Mayfield - lucky you.

  5. Looks like an amazing time. I love the butter churning dance moves ;)

  6. that sounds like a good time, for real!!!

  7. um, there is a band named BITCH?! THAT IS SO AWESOME!!! i would see them for the name alone!!!!

    p.s. i'd also see a band named DICK if there was one. years ago i went and saw a band named nudist priest, just because of the name (plus they played judas priest songs in the nude -- i HAD to see that!). :)


Your comments make my day sparkle :)
