On saturday I will be driving two hours to the Belgian coast to see Xiu Xiu, and then 2 hours back home. They're not even the main act, they're supporting Silver Mt Zion (which I saw 2 weeks ago and bored me), which means that I'll be driving 4hours for a 40 minute set when I should be working on my final thesis that I have to hand in in the begining of June.
This brings me to think, how far have you people gone just for a single gig and was it worth it? Festivals don't count because there's hundreds of gigs and days of music (unless you went to like Bangalore especialy for an indian roots festival or something). What other crazy thing have you done to go to a single gig?
