The Stern Groove

I finally treked out Stern Grove concert this year. The last one. Ozomatli was the headliner. Never seen 'em before. I got the concert @ 3. It started at 2. Most people were already there by 11:30. The gates said the grove was full, and you couldn't enter.


So I wonder along the length of the grove, find a piece of fence thats broken down. I sneakily go in. A security guard is like 30 ft from me. He doesn't smile when he sees me.


Well, fuck it. I keep wondering to the other end where there's a big green. And I see some people milling. I head in. Its a crazy forest with some dirt paths leading downhill. I find people, and they began to direct me. Eventually I stumble on the secret blurry stone stairway.

I made my way down to the grove,

into the concert area,

on the hill.

It was there that I found hobbits.

Ozomatli played.

Its was fine. I sorta felt it was like a generic party happy go rah rah band. I had a good enough time. I certainly got my moneys worth.

I decided to walk home. On route I ran across a sweet cherry Lemonade stand.

I was very pleased.

Lemonade for Jimmy.

Nice post. A few years back the last concert was Arrested Development and DANG was it packed there. I luckily got to sneak in and shimmy my way near the front. MR. WENDEL RULED!

My Ozomatli experience was the same, minus the grove, the grove being full, the unfriendly security guard, the magical staircase, the beautiful tree-specked hillside, and the hobbits ... exactly the same.
