We were responsible with our water conservation during the Culture Collide Not a Pool Party at the Hard Rock Hotel in Palm Springs — maybe a little too responsible, by strictly imbibing Lagunitas instead of H2O all night.
Dorothy kicked off the party with their untamed rock 'n' roll, followed by the mysterious (and kind of terrifying) PPL MVR, who melted our faces off with their heavy alien rock. After their set, they took to their green room for a pancake fight, the details of which we won't disclose.
The crowd got rowdy on the dance floor when Elliphant took the stage. The DJ set by Miami Horror kept us moving late into the night.
The epic evening was a perfect prelude to what is sure to be an awesome weekend one of Coachella. (Get in the mood with our Coachella playlist!)
Now excuse us while we hydrate our hangover.
