Because I live out in the boondocks I’m usually able to get a good seat when taking MUNI inbound and that gives me a great vantage point when playing the “Who else on the bus is going to the same block party I’m going to?” game.
Some festivals are trickier then others, but when you start talking about the Folsom Street Fair or Love Fest even Stevie Wonder can dominate in this game.
Please to enjoy, a scene from the Civic Center MUNI station during Love Fest 2009 –
Oh my Lord. It’s like a tsunami of teenage wasteland.
My favorite part of this video is that it was shot by Adam Jackson who ran the great Adam’s Block website. The premise of that site was pretty simple, he just put a webcam outside of his apartment window in the Tenderloin and streamed everything that was happening online. The site attracted an international following and the crime rate actually dropped on that particular block because whenever a junkie would break into a car someone in Idaho would see it online in real time and call SFPD. Go team.
UPDATE # 1
Deadmau5 set at Love Fest. Skip ahead to 6:15.
Best. Rick Roll’d. EVER.
