In the past six years, various musical acts I have seen at a TMO party include Kanye West, Stone Temple Pilots, Weezer, Fallout Boy, The Raconteurs, and the reunion of Blink 182. The above acts could and have sold out huge arenas, but for the night I was around 15 feet away from them.
L.A. landmarks such as Siren Studios, Paramount Studios, Griffith Park, The Grove Mall, Parking lot cross from the Pantages, and The Palladium have housed these events for the night.
5 reasons for TMO/Bolthouse nostalgia
1. Before Coachella, the last time I saw the Strokes was at the Greek Theater in 10th grade (I still have the shirt I bought).
2. Julian Casablancas was my teenage dream.
3. The last time I was at the Robinson’s May compound (my mother used to always drag me there), was for the Alliance’s party for Play Station 3. I had the best time embracing my child hood self, playing with toys and candy whilst dancing to a performance by P.Diddy… (I think he was Diddy at that time?)
4. TMobile parties slash anything Bolthouse were ingrained in my late teenage/early adulthood years, so naturally I have only the best memories.
5. Bolthouse/Tmobile bring out the best of L.A. old and new friends.
The Strokes came on at 11:40 Pm, starting the show off in style with Reptillia, followed by Hard To Explain, Taken For A Fool, and Juice Box.
