This past weekend we got to take a little adventure up to Seattle, the biggest city in the Northwest Region and fastest growing in the States! The city itself is known for rain, coffee, big businesses, nature, art and history.
Where it all began; The original Starbucks location on Pike Place. The line goes out the door consistently all day and you can expect a 20+ minute wait.
This is the longest operating Farmers’ Market in the US.
Come early and catch employees throwing fish across the counter.
If you’re a germaphobe, you may want to take two steps back. The Market Theater Gum Wall has been named one of the top 5 germiest tourist attractions.
Make your way to Seacrest Park in West Seattle for a great view of the city!
We happened to be in town for the Solstice Festival in Fremont. It was put on to support the art and artists in the neighboring area.
Follow the Aurora bridge up Troll Ave, and you’ll come across this awesome sculpture.
The architecture on the Seattle Public Library is simply breathtaking. Seattle is ranked the most literate city in the country. The Seattle Public Library has the highest percentage of library cardholder per capita.

After all the hysterical hype, the 15th annual desert festival finally comes to a bittersweet end. Nearly 180,000 crazed art and music fans flocked to this year’s Coachella Festival in Indio, California, with huge expectations of greatness. With astonishing art installations everywhere and the variety of world renown artists performing every second of the day, there’s no wonder why people drop hundreds, if not, thousands of dollars in preparation for this majestic cultural experience. We already cannot wait to see what 2015 will bring for our new generation of adventure-seekers.
Coachella has been a catalyst for reuniting musical groups in the past and is most definitely continuing to do so for our listening pleasure. Celebrating 20 years of their unique sound, Outkast launched their highly-anticipated tour on April 11th, headlining this festival and 40 more thereafter, throughout Spring and Summer around the world.
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose…Don’t just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans – stank you smelly much, this is for y’all!” – Big Boi
Andrè 3000 and Big Boi of Outkast closing out the first night of Coachella 2014.
This infamous festival also features various up-and-coming artists, giving them the opportunity for amazing exposure. Rising progressive music producers, The Glitch Mob, hands down rocked the Sahara stage from top to bottom, beginning to end. Their extraordinary sound pulsed through the dense sea of bobbing heads and hands. One of our favorite artists at Coachella 2014, definitely.

In the pursuit of happiness, Coachella attendees flew to the outdoor stage to see Kid Cudi perform. Because he has stopped hanging out with “Mary-Jane,” rumor has it that his music just isn’t the same. We beg to differ. He threw it down with new songs, old hits, and even brought surprise guest MGMT to feature in his set. Long live Mr. Solo Dolo!

A$AP Ferg had the whole crowd chanting “Shabba, Shabba!” No doubt the crowd was hyped up for this midday afternoon performance at the Outdoor Stage. Ferg had help from A$AP Rocky where he debuted a new untitled song. But wait, it didn’t end there. The A$AP Mob took stage with Skrillex to perform Wild For The Night.
The crowd was definitely happy and throwing up their hands for Pharrell Williams, who recently did a collaboration with the timeless French duo Daft Punk. Like every year, rumor had it that Daft Punk was definitely going to appear on stage with Pharrell. However, we didn’t see Daft Punk, but he did not disappoint with his special guest appearances. Over the two weekends, the cameos included: Snoop Dogg, Diplo, Gwen Stefani, Busta Rhymes, Usher, T.I., Jay Z, and The Jabbawockeez. That’s a line-up on its own!
This Pharrell fan shows off his love and creativity with his hand-painted denim jacket.
If you haven’t heard of the musically talented Jhene Aiko, you definitely will hear of her in the very near future. She gained massive attention with her Sailing Souls mix tape in 2011, where she collaborated with Miguel, Drake and Kanye West. “I love me, I love me enough for the both of us…” As soon as Jhene began singing that catchy hook, the huge festival cameras came out to play. The crowd was on their toes in anticipation that Drizzy Drake would walk on stage to perform the rest of the song with her. Then a smooth, familiar voice announces, “This is my first time at Coachella by the way.” The sea of fans screamed and cheered in excitement. What an amazing surprise! It won’t be long until we see Drake’s name on the line up bill in the next year or two. Jhene also brought out Childish Gambino and Kurupt for her performance.
The Coachella Art and Musical Festival of 2014 has dwindled down to the end. With all the craze and hype buzzing around the great music and mind-blowing art installations, it’s hard to believe it’s all over – back on that daily grind. Until next year Indio! Thank you!
Recently dropping the music video for the title track off his New Jet City mixtape, Curren$y keeps the visuals going with live performances of Mary from three different concerts. The mixtape features appearances from Rick Ross, French Montana, Jadakiss, Wiz Khalifa and others. If you haven’t had the chance to see Spitta live, you should definitely check him out.
Oh yeah, shout out to Spitta for rocking the crowd in our floral Boulder jacket and Ralston hat.
Take us back please.
With tens of thousands of music fans from all over the world descending upon Indio California, Coachella and it’s eclectic lineup continues to be a destination for all music lovers around the world. Hell yeah, we definitely wish we were still there at one of the world’s greatest music festivals hanging out with 90,000 of our newest friends. With its picturesque mountains and giant palm trees serving as a perfect backdrop, our photographer and good friend Louis Trinh was able to capture some of his favorite moments this year. Enjoy!

Our buddy Jay Otaguro of Noteworthy is living the good life out on the Paradise of the Pacific. Our Noteworthy brethren share the same sentiment as us in that “clothes make the man” and the clothing you choose makes a significant impact on how you are remembered.
