OKAY. Here goes:
DiSMEAT on Wednesday, thanks especially to Matt_was_taken and spit-fire <3
Dirty Three: Warren Ellis is amazing.
SBTRKT: I'm not a massive fan of the record but seeing it live was completely great.
Franz: they played all three songs I desperately wanted to hear (Darts of Pleasure, This Fire and Michael, yay)
John Talabot: everyone was *so* up for this
I Break Horses
AraabMUZIK's absolutely mental WTFing (although I didn't enjoy it much, he was sure good at what he did)
Watching Benga from the steps
FREE QUE PASTA (pretty sure it wasn't meant to be free)
Playing a game called MOBY OR SUTIN (spotting loads of nearly bald men with thick-rimmed glasses)
Kings of Convenience, and standing behind Erland Oye during Washed Out
James Ferraro, even though he only played for 25 minutes
Real Estate <333333
CHROMATICS sounding so massive and having a huge crowd
Hype Williams, although the lights were a bit much
Jamie xx is *such* a good DJ
Scuba at 5am
Smint, again <3
KIND OF BAD
Far, far too hungover on Thursday. This was because of the absinthe bar and resulted in my boyfriend being really quite ill and me needing to go and find him some rehydration stuff. We missed a couple of bands due to that as well :(
The queue for Jeff Mangum on Friday meant we only got to see 20 minutes of his set - why on earth didn't they let people in earlier?
The 'large' beers were being advertised as 500ml but they were 400ml - how the fuck can they get away with that?
Too many people smoking and talking right in my face
The sticky floor by the Pitchfork stage
Climbing the 96 steps each morning to our bloody apartment
tl;dr, I know. But, had an amazing weekend despite the horrendous hangover to start off. No organisation problems apart from the Jeff Mangum queue I guess, I didn't really queue once for a beer or for the toilet. Yeah. Definitely back next year again. Getting back to the UK in the pouring rain was awful. Now it is bedtime as I had three hours sleep this morning.
