Live Music Reviews

Splendour In The Grass 2011, Friday July 29 – Sunday July 31 - Woodfordia

LOVED: The songs, the personalities on stage, the personalities off stage (shout-out to Ol' Mate), spending way too much time at the bar, spending way too much money at the bar, those crazy bird shadow puppet things, and not having to pull out the gumboots (but doing it anyway).  HATED: Is how my insides felt on Monday morning. Sorry, insides. I owe you one.  DRANK: Approximately half of the weekend's smuggled booze allocation on the bus ride into Woodford.

The Panics

 Loved: The impassioned performances of The Panics' new songs, Majesty and Low On Your Supply. Hated: The disrespectful punters chatting throughout Woodroofe's impressive set. Drank: Asahi

Pets With Pets

 Loved: That I felt relatively short compared to the many tall fuckers in attendance. Hated: The half-minute it took to get a pair of earplugs from the bar while Bum Creek screeched through the PA. Drank: Beers. Big ones.
