...good line up...im very excited!!
Kid in sweet shop springs to mind.
Who is everyone gonna try and see?
then We Are The Physics at Dublin Castle. Not sure about the earlier slots yet...
..Wild Beasts, Shut Your Eyes and Los Camp are the top of my list at the moment
....i like it...
£30 to see 4 bands? luckily i didn't pay and only won tickets but what a load of shit.
the way its marketed as a festival is ridiculous. the time schedule 4 slots for 15 different venues. so you get to choose one band out of every 15 or so to see.
will not be returning next year
crystal castles were most excellent :D
was crazy, i thought the floor was going to cave in, madness.
With everyone in the smaller venues starting at the same time, you seem to spend the whole evening in queues or in empty rooms.
As for the bands
Death Cigarettes were amazing at Tommy Flynn's (which isnt even officially part of the Crawl)
Sam Sparro - sub Jamoroquai shit
Ipso Facto - Ok, but a bit heavy going.
Esser - excellent, but hampered by a bizarre sound mix
Kennedy - desperate and lost
Kid Fucking Harpoon
Make Model - Tedious jockery.
I'm hoping for better things today.
but have attended SXSW a few times.
I think the major problem compared to SXSW is the majority of the venues are far too small for the amount of people attending the event.
You'll always be struggling to get in later in the evening and even when you do you'd end up near the back anyway.
I would have headed along if I had got a photo pass (which I didn't)but would have stuck to one venue by 9ish for the rest of the evening to make sure I caught the headliners I wanted to see.
weather was lush, i could afford the drinks, saw a lot of good bands... in fact the only downside was not having anywhere central to crash at 3am once we'd been kicked out of Koko.
quite glad i opted out this time round though.
no great shakes
saw hadouken play in a music shop which was fun enough - moved on to ballroom to meet up with people - then nw1 for warmsley - koko for dioyy - purple turtle for post war years, lets wrestle and crystal castles.
left after that - fed up of queuing and looking at queues - worst band?...... let's wrestle
not going tonight but south central and slagsmk look like good ones
