This April I finally joined the club of glitter-covered music festival goers for the first time ever. I know, how could I, at 18 years old, living in California, have never been to a music festival until now? Well, to be honest, I just never had much interest. Coachella always seemed like more of a fashion show, I was never in town for Outside Lands or Beach Goth, and I don’t particularly like the country music played at Stagecoach. Then at a local venue, When We Were Young (WWWY) was announced. The tickets wouldn’t break my bank, and the headliner was Morrissey, I mean how could I turn that down?
