We caught up with Diplo and A-Trak at their Mad Fools After pArty. Mad Fools was that who is who of hipster cool which went down yesterday at Summer Stage. There were over 3000 people there and it felt like the show of the summer. When I hit up Wes (Diplo) with an Sephardic Music Festival (SMF) shirt, he got mad excited and pulled over A-Trak to check it out. Of course I had to snap it. Checks it for your self!
Here is some info on the SMF!
