|Outfit--Tank: Alternative Apparel, Sequined Skirt: Thrifted & Borrowed|
There's this thing in San Francisco called EPR. They hold these weekly "concerts" for people 18+ in downtown San Francisco (actually it's like 3 blocks away from my condo, weird right?). Basically, it's used as a club for those unfortunate souls that aren't yet 21 (or have a way to appear 21) and those who kind of like raves, but not necessarily super hardcore ones. In it's simplest form, it's an dupstep concert.
I've heard of EPR for awhile now, but had never gone until this past Wednesday (yes, these weekly let's get super wasted and maybe do some drugs events happens on Wednesdays). The DJ of the week was 3LAU! (the 3 is pronounced as a B). He was kind of a mixture of house and dupstep, which I was thankful for. Although I'm completely down with listening to some dupstep when I'm high, when I'm dancing I like to have something more than a bass going crazy. You know what I mean?
I'm still not certain if I liked EPR, but the experience was definitely interesting. The line was ridonkulous, but I liked bonding with the people waiting with us (some of these kids have the coolest tattoos). The concert itself was also enjoyable, but not completely something I was used to. Finally, the guys were a little bit more touchy feely/creepy than I wanted. Maybe it was because they were rolling?
I wasn't really sure what to wear to this thing, because I've never been to anything like this. In reality, I haven't even been to that many normal concerts. But raves seem like something completely different. You've seen those pictures right? Those girls with the sparkly bras (ok those are kind of cute), fuzzy boots (how do they ever survive in those? it's so hot!), tutus, pasties, cracked out hair, pacifiers etc. I'm really not into that. Instead I opted for my favorite grey tank from Alternative Apparel (I love the cut) and my friends sparkly sequined skirt. To add that final touch, she gave me this jewel to put next to my eye. All night girls would yell at me, "OMG matching!" Since they'd be wearing a sequined skirt too or their skirt as a shirt. I obviously wore it best though, right?
