This Good Robot

On Saturday, JD and I drove down to Asbury Park, NJ to see my cousin 
Andrew's band, This Good Robot, play the main stage at Bamboozle.
We somehow managed to make excellent time and arrived pretty early,
which was necessary because we waited for an hour and a half
on a line that stretched at least half a mile down the boardwalk.
I was a little nervous we were going to miss them since their set was scheduled
for 2:05pm and we were pretty far back on line, even after getting there so early.
It all worked out though. The doors opened around 1:30pm and we began shuffling down 
the boardwalk, past restaurants offering Bamboozle specials and outdoor seating, 
ice cream stands, and plenty of beach goers out enjoying the perfect weather.
At security they took the caps from our water bottles, apparently they are considered weapons, 
and handed us a festival map and a copy of the set list. I then grabbed JD's hand 
and ran towards the giant black stage set up all the way at the opposite end of the boardwalk.
We made it just in time. A nice crowd had already managed to gather 
before they took the stage. They were amazing!

I had no idea what to wear. I decided to go for a very simple, casual look.
Shirt: Old Navy, Tank: Forever 21, Pants: J. Crew
Handbag: Mulberry, Sunnies: RayBan, Hat: Scala
Bracelets: J. Crew, Shoes: Tory Burch

That last photo was taken by a professional photographer from the stage.
It's amazing, isn't it? I sort of got another angle of it from the crowd.
