Pygmalion Festival 2015 Poster

The day before my natal day, we had a little road trip to Urbana Champaign, Illinois for The Pygmalion Festival. It was surreal to see Purity Ring perform live, and we were jumping to the awesome music of Run the Jewels by the time my birthday eve came around.

Aside from the fact that it near (or within?) U of I, most of the audience were probably students since alcohol restrictions was really enforced. I had a good laugh though when the guy putting on my alcohol wrist band said, “wow, I cannot go smaller than this,” because of my ridiculously minuscule wrist!

Skinny wrist checking in! ((:

Remember that article from Nylon about Grimes’s protege? I didn’t; until this amazing girl performed that familiar song that I read about in the article and listened to.

Up next: I can’t believe my ears, Purity Ring live! I didn’t plan on recording anything because it feels such a sacred moment. But I can never do justice describing how awesome their performance was with just words. It was an INCREDIBLE production number that takes you out of this world. See for yourself:

The moon looking backdrop was actually a gong that lights up when hit!

Here’s an electrifying performance of my favorite song, Fineshrine.

T.R.U.T.H. + Klevah aka Mother Nature also gave one helluva performance. They gave out candies at the end of their set. (:
