this has to be the oddest story ive heard coming out of this years coachella
according to Todd Martens and documented by these photos, the kids at coachella this weekend listened to a band leader id never heard of, and set fire to their own cold hard cash.
Nothing goes better with hot desert temperatures, a tired and possibly drunk or stoned crowd, than fire, right? Funk-soul revivalist King Khan instructed fans to pull out dollar bills, and then set them aflame. Ask, and you shall receive, and about two dozen fans in a cramped tent started raving flaming dollar bills, dropping them on the dry grass when the heat became too hot to handle. – Pop & Hiss
i guess if you just laid out $300 for tickets, a several hundred for lodging, and various amounts for travel and food, whats a few bucks aflame because KING KHAN TELLS YOU TO.
its not like you can buy anything there for a buck anyways.
pictured here: $4 fifth of vodka. mix it up with a $.90 1.5 liter of sprite and a $.25 bag of ice and you’ve got yourself the cheapest party around. compare that to $1 beers…when you’re drinking like we do, that’s some serious savings. you can buy cups for $.30, but what are we? made of money?! bahts don’t grow on trees, you know!
she goes on to explain that they cut plastic bottles in half and drink out of them.
