Psycho Las Vegas 2018: Bowing to Electric Messiah


08.17.18 – 11:16AM – Thursday morning – Hotel room

Was up a fair amount overnight. Had a nightmare I was being chased around the festival by some terrible somersaulting clown. He didn’t walk, he only rolled, but he rolled really fast and I’m pretty sure he was trying to kill me. Not friendly intentions, at the very least.

Did the review — did you see it? were there typos? — and was asleep immediately upon its posting. I was like, “Oh jeez I’m pretty awake I’m not sure if I — SLEEEEP.” Done for.

The alarm went off a little over an hour ago and I took the best shower I’ve taken in months. Maybe years. You know how there’s no shower like your own shower? Right? And everywhere you go, going home and taking a shower in your own shower is the best? Yeah, no. The Hard Rock shower is legit better than that going-home shower, unless that going-home shower is a roomy slate-tile affair obviously meant for company with a jet setting that would powerwash the paint off your house. Temperature, perfect. It was nothing short of amazing, and after peeling all the airplane/festival gunk from my skin like I was molting, I wanted to go another round just for the hell of it.

Coffee’s good too. There’s a little shop right by the elevator that’s doing alright. And if you keep your cups they give free refills, but the only trouble is they close at 7PM. I can’t imagine I’ll ever be invited back here, but these things are good to know anyway.

The first of three three-stage days starts today. Vinyl, the Joint and the pool will be open, though only the pool later on. Today, tomorrow and Sunday are all pretty busy days. Not a lot of downtime, and intermittent though it was, I expect last night was actually the best night’s sleep I’ll get. So it goes.

This isn’t the kind of fest that happens every day, so if you have to lose sleep to see what you want to see, it’s a small price to pay. DVNE are on in about an hour and I’m gonna grab more coffee and meander, try and figure out where I go and when and whatnot. If you’re keeping tabs — and yeah, I know, you’re not; this is not me feigning relevance — I’ll have the review up later or tomorrow morning. Thanks for reading.
