Pre Psych Fest Party at Mohawks & Red 7
A Place To Bury Strangers were excellent. Joined on the last 2 tracks by a member of Sereena Maneesh.
Metz didn't do anything for me. Punk edged rock. Not knocking them as musicians but just a lack of tunes to grab my interest.
Thoroughly enjoyed the last 2 songs I caught of Rain Parade' set.
Day 1 - Psych Fest
Highlight - The Soft Moon. Wow, they played with an intensity and fire I'd not seen before. Ever improving live outfit.
Great sets from - Besnard Lakes, Tinariwen, The Raveonettes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Silver Apples, Acid Mothers Temple, Om.
underwhelmed by - Warpaint, Suun, Tamaryn
Highlight - Woodsman. Down to a 3 piece since I last saw them at SxSW 2011. only have the 1 drummer now. Still a mightily impressive set. Must try to get them to the UK for the first time.
Great sets from - Black Mountain, Man Or Astroman?, Night Beats, Boris (contender for the loudest festival set EVER!), Holydrug Couple.
Bailed before seeing The Warlocks, Deerhunter & Spectrum as there was thunder, lightning and heavy rain. (I'm a lightweight!!)
Day 3 promises to be a corker (Hopefully the site won't be a giant mudpit).
Aiming to catch Elephant Stone, Roky Erikson, The Moving Sidewalks, No Joy, Indian Jewelry, Dead Skeletons & Goat (cannot wait to see them live)
The 3 stages have the clearest sound I've heard from a festival set up. It's been impeccable.
