NSD Staff heads to Bonnaroo tonight

6 Jun

Wish us luck.  Couldn’t be more excited, and also lucky to be alive after attending EDC in NYC only 2 weeks ago.  Renting a badass RV with a bunch of flat screens, 9 beds, and a full kitchen so we can make delicious food the whole time AKA eat cheese puffs all weekend.  Most pumped for Saturday night: Childish Gambino, Dispatch, The Roots, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Skrillex ALL IN A ROW.  Also excited for: Beach Boys, Radiohead, fun., Foster the People, Young the Giant, Ludacris, Big Gigantic, and about a million others.  And obviously going to Silent Disco every single night, where they a DJ plays a set in complete silence and they pass out headphones to everyone.   A couple other staff members will be hanging around our offices but hoping to have some posts on our Twitter (@natlskirtday).  I’m sure my phone will die about 5 hours in so don’t expect much.  Wish us luck.

Although the poor city dwellers in the Northeast have to wait until mid-April for their skirt day, such a day can come early in some parts of the country. March 19th marked the unofficial skirt day in Charlotte, NC, keyed by the festivities of St. Patrick’s Day.  With bar events on Thursday night inducing massive consumption and poor choices, it was a challenge to take advantage of the sunny, 80-degree weather that Friday brought. With people attempting to mask their stenches of whiskey and avoiding the beat-up coworker they hooked up with the night before, a Skirt Day declaration seemed premature. Considering the spastic weather, consecutive skirt-worthy days were as likely as Lindsay Lohan actually going to prison; Chris Brown not trying to look like a douche; A Big East team not screwing up another bracket. Simply put, things were not looking good.
