Yesterday LP took part in SPF 949 2017 Festival at Junior Seau Pier Amphitheatre (located at the foot of the Oceanside Pier) in Oceanside, California. LP’s set started 4.30 pm local time and lasted about 35 minutes. Btw, it’s not the first festival when people are surprised that LP isn’t one of the main stars of the event or that she’s not performing on the main stage. Here’s one of many similar comments, Erin Berin (@ThatsMrLady2You): “LP was Outstanding! Not sure how you can top that! ? #SPF949 can’t believe @iamlp went before Judah and the lion. She should headline every festival from now on”. Next year perhaps?
Prior to her concert, she was interviewed by Alyssa Rose of FM 94.9. When I asked, the radio did promise to put this interview online however it’s not up yet. As a fun trivia, LP and other members of her band brought their dogs with them to festival, that’s why you can spot Orson on the picture from the interview. From what I know National Dog Day is on the 26th of August, but their pets have had their own party yesterday. Perhaps this festival is animal friendly? ?
Since I do not know what songs LP sung yesterday (haven’t seen a pic of the setlist), I will go straight to some of the best comments. Cat (@uppercasecat): “Precisely as enamored with LP as I imagined I’d be. Thanks #spf949 #949sd for bringing my faves to my side yard yet again. #legendsofthesideyard #ilovelivemusic”. She added, “Total powerhouse! Size of a toothpick. I heart her. ?”. Brittany (@bmason619): “LP is a great performer. Such a great time #fm949sd”.
@1ifiona1: “The #1 reason I was excited for #spf949 and she didn’t disappoint! @iamlpofficial was fantastic. I love the cd but I think she was even better live. I will see her again. Thanks @fm949sd for bringing her basically to my backyard (I did kind of make a special request back in March ?”. @fm949sd: “LP slayed at #SPF949!”. They later added: “Still in shock with how good @iamlpofficial was at #SPF949”. In shock & surprised? It’s natural state after LP’s concert ? She is THAT good.
@adi_doo1: “I listen to you when I shower, I study or when I just want to feel sumthin’. [I’ve never fan girled so badly before, and have a mini heart attack at the same time]. Thank you for the amazing performance”. @jenparsley: “LP is my new favorite! She’s amazing! #949sd”. MMM (@triplem7): “Started my day in the ocean & ended it with seeing one of the most beautiful & talented souls I’ve ever met perform! Circa #Nyc1999 @iamlpofficial ?? #fullcircle & extra awesome!”.
And one more from Twitter, Gkleft ✪ (@GKleft): “@iamlp I was just at your show in San Diego. I’m an aspiring hip hop artist. Tonight was outstanding! Want to be on ya lvl. Great music #inspired”. That’s all I have for now. For more images of yesterday’s event I recommend checking FM 94.9 Facebook site (here) as they have posted some really great shots of LP. I’m not using those on the blog, as those were taken by official photographer, so I am not sure if I could use those here.
As for today, apart from the concert at El Rey in LA (last one of her US tour!), LP will also perform on the Southwest Sound Stage at the ALT 98.7 Penthouse. The event is from 12pm to 2pm. Performance is at 1pm (that’s 10pm Polish time). There will also be interview, and I have sent few questions, as interviewer (Jake Dill) was kind enough to propose an option of asking LP some question on my behalf. I am not sure if this interview will be live, if I will find out, I will be tweeting the info at @LP_Blog_PL.
