Thanks to my client, Stelle Audio Couture, I had a fabulous excuse to hit Coachella in the Cali desert last month.
HARPER’S BAZAAR VIP PARTY
Stelle sponsored Harper’s VIP Coachella pool party at the Parker Palm Springs (of course I checked in) with DJ Mia Moretti spinning (pumping sounds on the Stelle Pillar) and cats like Katy Perry and Hannah Brofman chilling by the pool.
The Parker Meridian hotel is so old school Hollywood awesome, with vintage celebrity images in the rooms, 2 pools with the most epic views of palm trees and mountains, hammocks strategically sprinkled throughout the grounds, massage, yoga! and Michael the hair guy who gave me the best blow out ever. And the chilling…
THIRDMAN RECORDS + ACE HOTEL
Next day I packed my bags and headed a few blocks north (south? east? awesome?) to check into Ace Palm Springs just in time for there Coachella Do-Over sponsored by Thirdman Records.
2pm: DJ spinning at the pool w/ 500+ Coachella-ers deciding not to hit the Valley, but instead pack the pool.
2:15: I quickly grab a (happy) shot of myself in the old school lobby photobooth before heading room-side.
2:20: 2 little free-be vodka bottles await me when I finally squeeze through the soggy (mind and body) dancers and get to my room. I don’t drink, so left them outside my door. Someone was happy.
Next day: This is what 8am looks like at Ace Palm Springs.
Couple days later I hit the highway and drove 100 miles or so to LA. Beat. Checked into Standard Downtown LA and went to sleep.
PALM SPRINGS TO PALM BEACH
Next day I got on a plane heading east, Palm Beach on the brain. But that’s a totally ‘nother story…
