Anyone going? Afrirampo is gonna slay!
Been looking forward to seeing Afrirampo for a long time. I certainly do hope they slay. I'm also quite fond of Pens. Awesomes.
Props to the guy with the beard who sat on the stage during the 'forest' song; he did a good job.
The best song was that one towards the end with the lounge-pop-ish chorus.
"Can you hear the guitar? Can you hear the drums?"
after a while, I'm glad they decided not to have him on stage for long. However, the fellow who was given the guitar was pretty good. Other than that, thoroughly entertaining, hard rocking, avant-garde goodness. Pens were crap though. They looked thoroughly incompetent, shooting glances at each other that suggested they had no idea what they were doing. And having to teach the bassist the song is pretty lame. You can be shambolic in a good way, but that was just second rate.
I had a difference of opinion (row) with mates who liked Pens after that set. There were those who go "ah,they're cute, they don't know what they're doing" and me going "Nine months ago I could have cut them some slack, but now they are just begging the audience for indulgence - all they do is be shit and simper and that's supposed to get them home." The row was a draw, but I'm now claiming victory.
