Diversifest








Diversifest, or D-fest, is a huge music festival in downtown Tulsa. They completely shut down a huge section of the city called the Blue Dome District. Local restaurants and artists set up booths everywhere and were selling everything from beautiful peacocky feather necklaces to awesome shirts that say, "Don't hate the 918" and " I speak Okie". They are awesome and I want one.
Of course Grant and I couldn't miss out on the festivities. Especially since Cake was headlining!

This was the view as the sun went down and we waited for Cake to start. It was so beautiful, and the weather was so perfect. Grant and I hardly know anyone in Tulsa, so it was really funny when I ran into like 5 people that I work with at Macaroni Grill who were at D-fest. Small world!
Cake!! They were actually so awesome. The lead singer at one point stopped the show and asked everyone to stop taking pictures with their cell phones and cameras. He asked us if we could just be HERE in this moment feeling the slight breeze and letting the music move us. It was so great!! I'm not sure if you can tell in this picture but his shirt is a giant kitty cat with a sparkiling American flag behind it. Only a real man can pull that off.
