Make Music Pasadena Under The Rain, Saturday June 11th 2016

Weather can really impact how you feel at a festival. In California, we take the weather for granted, we never think about it because it is always sunny,… well not always. Saturday was the 2016 edition of Make Music Pasadena, and it was raining when it is usually 80-90ºF in the middle of the afternoon at this time of the year.

The sky was white as chalk, not grey just bright white, and I thought we would finally see the sun at one point, but instead it pretty much rained all day long. Of course, it all depends on what you call rain, it was a thin curtain of water, some Cali drizzle, and only a few sprinkles most of the time, but it was enough to discourage many people to attend the usually very crowded festival in the early hours.

I have attended Make Music Pasadena for many years and it is usually very dense, but this year, you could actually breathe and walk without touching anyone. Of course, this changed at the end of the afternoon, as the two big acts, Atlas Genius and James Supercave, drew a very big crowd. But the sun dramatically affects your mood, and this festival, which usually launches my summer, launched my February break this year, or at least this is how it felt, no summer feeling, no sunburn, no dehydration, it was music in the mist, and plastic bag on the camera all afternoon.

Still, the performers tried very hard to make us forget about the weather, The Dead Ships ignited the crowd with a ferocious and catchy set, The Mowgli’s kept singing about sun and summer, Thee Commons made the crowd laugh with all their stage antics, Atlas Genius electrified the crowd and James Supercave,…. Aaaahh James, he was the darling of the day, and I am certain he charmed all the girls in the crowd and made everyone dance in the pit. It was a cold and rainy day but a good day overall.
