    Sorry bout the caps, i copied it straight from the web site :D

    I saw 28 Days, Millencolin, Deftones, Pacifier, The Living End, The Hard On's, Cog and The Murderdolls.

    they were all good, and if you like Tool, i encourage you to check out Cog. More lyrics, and the song structure is more defined, but the music is amazing, so check them out.

    The days highligh was the muderdolls. After seeing Pacifier and the Deftones, these guys made them look soft. I got 2 plectrums from trip, and i got the set list. They basically played their whole album. When there was a break for a drum fill in the song, Joey would play "Air drums" that was cool, and he looks really differenet, muych shorter in person.

    Anyway to all the guys that have been to the BDO, what have you though, and who would you like to see at next years. Pros, Cons ect ect

    Cheers!

    You didn't go see PJ? Man, I would have killed....
     
  5. They rule. :cool:
     
  6. I was at melbourne too.
    These are the bands I saw:

    Waikiki
    Frenzal rhomb
    Pacifier
    Millencolin
    The Vines
    The Living End
    Queens Of The Stone Age
    PJ Harvey

    The highlight was QOTSA. My god they were an awesome sight. I've never seen anything like it.

    The low point was most definitely The Vines. It made me physically ill with its poorness.
    :( All those broken strats :(

    Anyways it was a good day except for losing all my money, going hungry, getting cooked by the sun and ofcourse all of those damn barricades.

    It was all worth it to see josh and nick up there doing their thing.

    :D :D :D
     
  7. Yeah, my bro went to the Sydney BDO, unfortunately I couldn't go (too young). His highlights were the Foo Fighters, Frenzal Rhomb and The Living End. I would have killed to have seen Jebediah or The Living End, as they are my two favourite bands, those who saw TLE, what were they like? Has Chris fully recovered? And what is the new drummer like?

    Strangely enough, by brother said that they were the days 'lowlight', that they were really bad. But he didn't complain when he met them at an instore later that weekend. :rolleyes:
