Too Much Sloss

Weather aside, the festival was Slossome. Some fellow media guys were generous enough to help me out during Saturday’s rain storm. I linked up with friends from different periods of my life; it’s great to see they’re all doing well. I heard amazing new (to me) music, experienced different things, and met new people. I even interviewed a rising artist; one of the quotes is totally his. Shoutout to that other wall who was going ham the entire Waka Flocka set; HIGH energy. Ironically, I can still hear the small talk and jive conversations whether or not I’m wearing my EarPeace earplugs. Obviously people are people and you hear interesting things from G to X ratings. Enjoy.

“This is my first festival.”

“Are you really trying to clean off your shoes?”

“Let’s get close for ODESZA!”

“Waka Flocka literally grabbed my phone and recorded on my Snapchat!”

“It’s not fair that guys have urinals.”

“There’s sloths on your shirt!!”

“Here, lemme put some of this on your neck. Lemme know how it feels in a few minutes. ”

“I have an extra poncho.”

“Well I have a bag, but I’m waiting to give it to my friend. Will this Ziploc bag work?”

“I’m not gonna catch him if he comes this way.”

“Dude there’s literally a moat behind us.”


“You have to get down off the wall.” (Flustered security several times during Waka Flocka)

“A: What are they doing? B: They’re pouring iron.”

“I don’t know, just get fucking weird. Ya know?”

“See, aren’t you glad you came to Vince Staples?”

“I was waiting for them (Alabama Shakes) to play Redbone.”

“Hey can you take this picture on Instagram?”

“Oh my gosh, she’s so obsessed with what you’ve done with those glow sticks and your hair.”

“Those are the guys from Dexter’s Lab.”

“I don’t care what you guys do, but I’m staying for the whole Sturgill Simpson set.”

“Yeah dude it’s cool, you can stay at my cousin’s.”

The last quote shows generosity of complete strangers toward one another, a major reason why I personally attend festivals. More often than not you experience those times to still believe the good in humanity. Like minded people striving for similar goals; taking care of one another, listening to music, and having a good time. Hmm. Cogitate on those words. Thanks Sloss!!
