Will any other DiSers be in attendance?
I'll be there.
working, but not too hard.
It promises to be rather pleasant.
I am interviewing bands backstage.
And maybe when I'm done I'll be handing out icecream to kids.
From the back of a van.
Standing on a soiled mattress.
With an erection.
just the earlier bands on the bill, nothing too earth shattering.
I'll pay cash
missed out on tickets :-(
oh, Ben and Jerry's..
:( one of the quickest-selling festival?
loads of families will be there
Slightly worried about the lukewarm lemonhead reviews @ truck though.
still, it'll be the first time I've seen them since their 'final' show at Reading 97' so I'm willing to give Evan a chance.
Hopefully the massive amount of free B&J's
on his rider should cheer him up.
Fight Like Apes
Cage the elephant are terrible.
Fight like apes are better, but a little unfamily...
with bells on! Three years in a row, love the BJ
Just hope that Evan is on form tomorrow.
Just got back from todays bash! Was great fun but comes across as a cross between a Green Party rally and a radio one roadshow with good bands thrown in !!
Brightlightes - tight and solid -worth investigating 8/10
Florence & THe Machine - completetly barking mad like Bjork on speed but lacking in major tunmes - best song is cover of cold wear kids hospital beds !!
Charlotte Hattherly -boring ploddy stuff that literally sent me to sleep !!
Delays -alive upbeat good humoured energic -good festival band
Guillemots -same set as at i tunes festival but lacking in the great sound at koko !! Good tight set though!! got a setlist !!
Charlatans -always good live -heavy plugging of new lp mixed in with old singles including how high the only one i know one to another -finished as usual with Sproston Green !"! Had problems with sound and dont care for stuff he does in falsetto voice
..if anyone's interested
I know Colin their bassist a little bit as he dates my friend Amy, actually I'm just trying to source a ticket for Amy's brother Sam who happens to be a DiSer from spiritofjazz who has posted below!
despite working I had a splnedid time, I'd actually recommend the fest to friends, fuck it, I'd nearly bring my mum haha. I even met Jerry!!!, looks like a thin, but not that thin, malcolm glazer.
I'll be keeping an eye out for DiSers tomoorw, I've memorised your profile pics.
Cherry Garcia. Bring it on!
what time The Lemonheads will be on? I've got other stuff to do today, so I reckon i might just head down for when they come on. The whole thing finishes at 20:00, and it's just Ash above them, right? So around 16:30-17:00ish?
