Coachella is a music festival?

Do you have 17 outfits prepared but can't name a single artist on the lineup?  Did you juice cleanse, spray tan, and get a fresh mani just to prepare for having your photo taken at all of the parties? Are you most excited to see what Kate Bosworth will throw together this year? Is your life long dream to rub elbows with Vanessa Hudgens at the Lacoste Party?
After an overwhelming number of party invites, our friend sent us this email: 

Hint: He's not serious.

Hope you got as much of a kick out of this as we did. Have a fun and safe Coachella Day 3!

Tuesday Tunes: Toro y Moi

Chaz Bundick, aka Toro y Moi, is back! This time around he went a little less indie and more pop, and we are not mad at him. We've had So Many Details and Say That on repeat and have been eagerly awaiting the release of his third album, Anything in Return, which is out today on iTunes
Got the album, but still need more Chaz? We feel the same way. On March 3, Toro y Moi will be performing in Hollywood at The Fonda Theatre. Get your tickets here before they sell out.



School Night! Featuring Austin Brown & Yuna

As you know, we are big fans of School Night! sessions Monday night at Bardot in Hollywood. Live music at a dope venue and Free 99 to top it off?! Definitely makes for a great start to the week. Tonight's event features Malaysian singer-songwriter, Yuna, who we mentioned months back. We had hoped she'd make a stop in LA so we'd get to catch her live, but were beyond thrilled to see her playing at School Night. 

Tonight's School Night also serves as Austin Brown's mixtape release party. Austin Brown is the youngest child of singer Rebbie Jackson (Yes, that Jackson family). We're diggin' his soulful sound! Check out a sample of his mixtape here

Although tonight's show is free, you do need to RSVP. Happy Monday. 


Tuesday Tunes: Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City

Kendrick Lamar's highly anticipated album, Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, dropped yesterday and we've had it on repeat ever since.  Huge fans of his previous album, Section. 80, we were hoping for another record that we could listen to from start to finish and this album delivers just that. Our personal favorite song is none other than "The Recipe" in which Kendrick reminds us just why we love this city so much. 3 Ws.

Last Wednesday Kendrick played two back to back shows and we were lucky enough to attend the 11 pm show. Although Kendrick waited about 40 minutes before playing a hit, he made up for it with cameos by Game, Big Sean, and none other than Dre himself - well played. (How come no matter how many times we've seen Dre live, each time is just as exciting as the first?) Despite the fact that it was his second show of the evening, Kendrick still brought the energy and put on a great show. At the young age of 23, we think there's much more to come from the LA native.

Check out Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City and let us know what you think!


Tuesday Tunes: Losing You by Solange

We at East of Highland have had a love for Solange Knowles ever since she dropped the pop persona and returned to the scene with an eclectic indie vibe. She is a sartorial muse, and to say that we are obsessed with her is no exaggeration. We also happen to love Devonte Hynes aka Blood Orange. He blew our minds during his performance at the Echoplex (despite the technical difficulties), and we have had Sutphin Boulevard and Champagne Coast in our rotation for months. So you could only imagine how excited we were when we heard pals Solange and Dev Hynes were collaborating on her third album. Solange Knowles + Devonte Hynes = An EOH dream come true. Here's the first single, Losing You, (produced by Devonte Hynes) from her upcoming album set to be released in 2013.
