This weekend Greg and I went to the 2011 Treasure Island Music Festival. We didn’t know any of the bands playing (except Death Cab for Cutie – which both of us have heard of, but neither of us could come up with one lyric to the one song we probably know by them). Don’t hate me for saying this, but I’m not a big music person. Actually that’s a lie, I don’t like a lot of music. Hand me a NOW CD from the 80’s or 90’s and I’m a happy camper. But really, the only band I have loved since high school and still do to this day are the Foo Fighters (which I’m going to see live on Wednesday!!! Be jealous!) Other than that, I’m exactly what I used to make fun of my mom for. I love oldies….and sadly, the 90’s are now oldies.
Treasure Island Music Festival has a huge lineup that changes every year. They have never had a repeat act over the past 5 years and has been introducing people to new music ever since.
Greg and I went for the experience, and although we didn’t know any of the bands we had a great time laying out on a towel, soaking up the warm sun, eating delicious food, drinking $9 beers, people watching, and listening to some fun indie rock music. I have to say, the best part for me though was the fact that we had never been to Treasure Island before. The views of San Francisco from there are unbeatable. Here are some pics I took from the event, including some of those breathtaking city views.
