Holidazed & confused...
Remember when holidays used to be all visions of sugar plums, gingerbread houses and worrying about whether or not one was on the nice or naughty list? Well at some point shortly after becoming a cynical teen, Christmas cheer was replaced with nightmare mall scenarios involving creepy Santas, rushing like a madman to get those cards to Fedex fast enough and yule tide hangovers. Rather than focusing on the commercial chaos this time of year conjures up, I’ve decided to keep it pretty casual during X-mas and express my love and appreciation with gifts whenever I damn well please.
Don’t get me wrong, I love obnoxious light displays and the smell of pine trees (who doesn’t!) but I’m just pointing out that perhaps people should keep the magic and spirit strong year long instead of getting all mushy with one another when Hallmark says it’s all good. end rant. Now for some quality Electronic Music Events in Los Angeles...
Bitter isn’t a good look on anyone and my back hurts from trying to carry such a puerile point, so let’s move on to the event picks shall we? No Christmas carols here darlings, just good fucking electronic music for you to get down to, and that brings me JOY.
