Yesterday in Glasgow, here's some photos
fab day out was had, loved Herman Dune defo going to have investigate them
Is a great album of theirs, I very much recommend it. Absolutely love the title track & Good For No-one.
will be looking them out this weekend
Bored out my skull, by myself, and seemed to be tagged and branded an "under 18er" by being the only person I saw with a yellow wristband on (non drinking).
Couldent be bothered hanging around by myself, so I left before arab strap got on, the only band I was really interested in seeing.
cause u have no mates and aren't old enough to drink doesn't mean it was boring
Most of the bands were distinctly average (excluding arab strap) and all the indie kid students made me almost physically ill. And Â£3 for a veggie burger ? Fuck off.
oh and Herman Dune were fantastic!
the veggie burgers were cack though, but then again Mono is a veggie restaurant and you'd expect to pay Â£3 quid for a burger at any other festival.
But i know what they sound like, and that = good. I did a quick myspace check on the other bands and they were zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....
that we won't have to endure your gurning little coupon at any more gigs then
The bands I saw were rubbish. Thats it really.
I dont get this. It seems Im being criticized and ostracized for NOT liking something. Can this be right ? Im not alllowed to go to gigs any more because I didnt enjoy one, really quite lame, festival with some really quite average bands. And accused of being a dour faced music snob in the other thread about this.
I really dont get it.
go to your room
we must have been at different festivals.
The one I was at was full of music fans having a good time, paying what works out at around Â£1.55 for each of the nine bands they saw. The atmosphere was great, the sun was out, people were having a good time and all the bands put in a good shift. There was no trouble and in my view it was a fine example of everything which is good about the Glasgow music scene.
Think of how much your ticket cost, think of who you saw, Emma Pollock, Arab Strap, Herman Dune flew in from Paris to perform. I don't know the details but I imagine a few of the bands must have played for expenses and the pleasure of being there.
Your attitude to the crowd is perplexing, to quote "and all the indie kid students made me almost physically ill." What's your problem, how they dress, how they act, the bands they like ? You seem to have a bit of a gripe with the type of people you're going to see at any good gig in Glasgow. I think you maybe need to lighten up and learn how to go out and enjoy yourself without sitting picking faults with everything and everyone around you minus one particular band you like but didn't even stay to see.
went to an all-dayer by himself. Can be a bit of a downer, especially when you're a lot younger than everyone else.
and I'm as old as time. Didn't stop me having a good time. It strikes me that he'd decided he wasn't going to enjoy it before he went. And picking faults with the other people who attended when he didn't seem to have any interaction with them seems a bit weird.
People kept looking at me funny. I think it was because I wasnt wearing a 50s style "retro" dress/ a beard.
And Â£14 is a lot for us kids, regradless of the event.
That is like, seriously not cool, dude.
But whatever. I cant be bothered thinking up a articulate response. Im tired.
I didnt enjoy it. You did. Cool.
I know another reason I didnt enjoy it.
Just before I left, some guy crossed the street, stood right next to where I was sitting, zipped down his fly, and took a nice long piss right next to my feet.
I love glasgow.
