Yesterday I went to a one day music festival called the Big Day Out. Some bands there were System of a Down, Shihad, Silverchair, Alien Ant Farm, Garbage, NOFX, Basement Jaxx, New Order, The White Stripes, Prodigy, and stacks more. I also saw fellow talkbasser, nil, and his band Augustino were playing. There are a very decent band with some really cool songs, but I only saw half of them cos I got there late. System of a Down was one band I was waiting for for soooo long, and they started and I was right in the mosh pit. They had pretty crap sound but I wasn't worried. Then all of a sudden the huge crowd surged forward, and a girl broke her legs cos she was crushed. Shavo threw his Thunderbird like a baseball bat halfwayacross the huge stage, and stormed off cos he was pissed off at people getting hurt. They stopped their show and went off cos the barricades broke and needed to be fixed. After anotherr band ,Shihad, played (and they were absolutely brilliant), SOAD came back on and they were absolutely insane! I have never seen anyone with stage presence like Shavo. He is so unique throwing himself all over the stage. Alien Ant Farm were pretty disappointing, but played a few cool songs. "movies" was definitely a highlight, and Tye looked like a bear with his beard. Silverchair were alroght but it was raining pretty hard and most people were sitting in the stadium watching them. I spent the last 4 hours in the "Bolier Room" which is a huge dance tent about the size of two football fields. Basement Jaxx were definitely the higlight of the day! Absolutely amazing. HEy, Its my birthday today, but my car got broken into at band practice this morning! Talk about a good birthday present!!!! yeah right..... Anywayz, I have to go and cleannall the glass out of my car now.
