Now I know it’s been almost a month and I apologize. Work has sucked since, well, since I accepted my promotion, and that leaves me with little time to tend to this blog.
But enough excuses.
Okay, one more excuse. I’m sorry but so much of the trip is now such a blur that I can’t do my proper write up of the fest. I can’t break down every band I saw. Actually, that might work to my advantage, prevent me from sticking my foot in my mouth, ya know? And really, what more do you need to know than there were a bunch of awesome bands and a lot of Hipster Youth.
F**king hipster youth. Yeah, that’s right, “Sieg Heil!” to your all powerful Führer Bear.
Dark humor aside (it’s all I got for a defense mechanism), I want to highlight two of the best goddamn bands I saw.
The first was Tune-Yards (Jenna, I know, you’re a hater but just shut it for a second).
I was not a fan of their album but live, holy Hell! These guys have an infectious punk rock energy that compels you to jump up and down like a maniac.
The second band that blew me away was Fun.
I loved that one song but thought the rest was a gimmick. I was muthfuckin’ wrong. These guys put on a phenomenal show. Do yourself a favor: see them.
And what’s more fun than a flying dinosaur?
So there ya go. Go out, buy their albums and see them live.
… okay, here comes the obligatory “I’m gonna write more, I swear” but between work, sending out my CHUCK spec (don’t laugh) and getting addicted to assignments in Battlefield 3, when does a boy have time to blog?
Well, I’m saying it again: I won’t muthafuckin’ give up. It’s the pen or the gun. One of them is gonna kill me.
End of muthafuckin’ line!
PS, here are all my pics.
