Treasure Island music festival 2012

I won these tickets a few months ago from Live 105 (yeah I love them). Really I was just excited to be able to finally go especially since I still don't have a job and can't afford to do anything I really enjoy. I wanted to take my sister because she's a PhD student and she would've welcomed the break but it just so happened that weekend got a bit too crazy so she had to forfeit her ticket. Instead I went with my best guy friend, Tim, and we met up with our other friend on the Sunday of the festival. But let me back, back, back it up for a hot second.
The Lineup

Saturday was freaking INSANE. Unfortunately because I had a hankering for brownies (not those kind) AND I woke up late, we couldn't catch Grimes... Le sad. Completely and utterly my fault. I warned Tim that I'd get "real dancy" because he had never seen me like that and I wanted to make sure he wouldn't be super weirded out. Really I was just warning him because if I bumped into him with my crazy dance moves, he couldn't say that I didn't warn him.

Aaaaaanywho, I'm terrible at writing so I'll just show some of the (not great) photos from my phone that I took. Starting with Saturday!

Matthew Dear 
Toro y Moi... SO FUN

Public Enemy... yes. They were great and hilarious. Oh Flava Flav. Excuse me I mean,  FLAVERRRRRRR FLAAAAAAAAAAAV
Porter Robinson! SO SO GREAT! Definitely one of the best acts of the day.
Timmy and I rocking our sunglasses. I obviously look better with my dog hat.
The Presets.... Danced a lot to them too!
Getting ready for the greatness that is Girl Talk!
HE'S HERE!!!! 
It was super cool, he had like a party on stage basically with random folks. 
Loved this stuff
Freaking amazing
 So all in all, Saturday was full of dancing... It was SO humid and gross. Like I felt like I was sticking to everyone. The crowd was actually pretty good. Some annoying bros but what can you do. They're everywhere. My ears were happy (albeit ringing) and my feet were screaming at me ... But that was okay but it was a GREAT day. We knew Sunday would be way more chill but still, dancey.
Brunch at Venus in Berkeley to fuel up for the day!
The War on Drugs! SO happy to catch them... Was super stoked to see them :)
Ty Segall... rocked out like no other!
Ms. Joanna Newsom... so freaking cute! Her voice is so amazing.
Her adorable drummer AND her amazing flying fingers!

The amazing sunset with the city skyline. I love San Francisco.
Best Coast! They were SUPER fun
Wait... for.... iiiiiiiiiiit. Greatness happening and more to come....
BAM! M83!!!! LOVE
Loved their whole set. She is gorgeous

Such a great band!!! He was so energetic and fun and like I said, she  is so pretty and her voice is SO great
SAXOMOPHOOOOOOONE... Midnight City obviously!
So Tim and I debated on leaving our awesome spot and going to see Gossip, who I've been wanting to see for YEARS but for some reason have always missed (no money, no tour date near me, etc). We thought we would admire them from afar and dance to them in our place... From what we heard, they were GREAT but I am a little sad that I didn't get to see Beth be awesome in person. Le sigh. I guess... there's next time. I love The XX so I figured this would be worth it.
Getting ready for The XX
Jamie and Oliver... so cute! Well.. also Oliver's voice is incredibly sexy
Full Band finally captured... Loved the simplicity of everything


Aaaaaaand good night!
My favorite of Sunday? M83. As much as I love The XX, it was a very mellow end to the day/weekend. Made sense because Saturday was nuts but I think I just wanted a bit more. We did get a bit dancey but not much. Anyway in my humble opinion, Saturday was raw fun and Sunday was more a great time for the ears :) .... In any case I'm super annoyed that I was not dressed for the weather and felt like I had heat exhaustion the whole time. Well... maybe next year I'll be better prepared! Thanks again Live105!
