I realise the fest was about 2 weeks ago, normally I'd start writing shit up the day after the show but I was just too fucking tired. And then one thing led to another and I ended up putting it off until right now.. I mean, its not like it really matters though, its not like people are sitting on the edges of their seats waiting for my reviews to come out, I just feel I need to clarify things for my own sake.
The night was amazing, it totally blew away any expectations, not simply because of the music calibre, but the vibes were perfect - the right people in the right place. I had originally planned to go with some friends from London but they couldn't make it, so I found some replacements in Leeds. Just kidding, Chris, Mike and Dave came along completely voluntarily which I found pretty remarkable and admirable in a way, most people would be deterred by the entrance fee and the lack of recognisable band names. It was a good crew though, all dudes are really open to new things so I didn't have to keep checking over my shoulder like an over-enthusiastic camp leader.
We got there a bit before 4.30 because I being the cocksucker that I am had to get a good spot for Blacklisters.. there was no way I was gonna miss them.
