Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

by Nicole Pajer

We were strolling through the Coachella grounds last weekend, trying not to trip over passed out people, when we encountered this fella.

We weren't sure if it was the headdress (are people really still wearing those?), the dance moves, or the combination of both, but he coaxed us into sticking around and watching him.

A GIF of him doing his thing is below. Trust us: it's worth it.

He kept yelling "The Hives. The Hives" and pointing to the stage where the band was performing, before jumping back into his dance moves.

Just as we were starting to feel intrusive for "secretly" filming his entire routine, he winked and said, "You got that all on camera, right? Right on!"

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
