I sadly had to miss The Pixies and The Replacements on Sunday due to the weather having rained all morning til about 6:30 PM where it was nothing but cold winds without sun and my friend and I had to leave because it was close to hypothermia weather.
Sunday looks like a long list too because Steve and I literally had nothing going on after Chuck Ragan other than waiting for Against Me!
We hung out with Robert most of the time til we split. I got to meet a new friend also named Rob who I made friends with off of Tumblr.
Friday, Kara and Missy were with us as well as Saturday. The weather was pretty decent. Friday was cold with the sun and Saturday with sun, was hot as fuck outside. I guess Sunday had to be the dark, cold, gloomy day.
I had a wonderful time. To say these bands played my favorite songs and to say I’ve got to see Joan Jett and fucking FLAG, is extremely amazing. Danzig blew my fucking MIND. Blew it completely. To hear Danzig AND Misfit songs for my first time, ever?! words can not express.
I wish I could type the feelings and emotions I had this whole weekend in this blog but I can’t. I don’t think I could describe it perfect enough for you to feel it over a computer screen miles away from me.
My favorite band[besides Trio] couldn’t have been any better. Say what ever the fuck you want about Blink or the dudes in the band. They’re fucking awesome beings and they can make fart and dick jokes all they want. As long as they’re playing to make themselves happy because its what they love to do and live for, to make people like me happy, I have no complaints.
Whoever is pissy because everyone at the fest played ‘hits’ is fucking stupid.
