Southbound!

Here are some photos from Southbound, which happened on the 2nd and 3rd of January! It was such a perfect way to start the new year, with good friends, good music & ridiculously overpriced drinks. For me the best acts were The Hives (SO AMAZING, plus we were right on the barricade & Pelle came right up to us & I touched his hand which obviously binds us 4 LYFE), Santogold, Lykke Li, Donavon Frankenreiter (who I also got a photo with & his hair poked me in the eye but I didn't know what to do because pushing it away would be a bit too overly familiar and how do you tell someone "Um... your hair's in my eye", and also he featured Taj Burrow's dad on guitar which was pretty awesome), CW Stoneking, The Cat Empire & Franz Ferdinand. Check them out if you get a chance, they are all seriously amazing!

Oh, and the best conversation I heard the whole of Southbound (while standing in the line for chips):
Girl: I feel like ghosting somebody.
Boy (not mine): What about double ghosting?
Girl: Once I did dog ghosting.
Boy: ...
Girl: I just held up my dog behind people until they turned around. Although it kept barking and so it didn't really work.
WHO IS THIS GIRL I MUST BEFRIEND HER IMMEDIATELY.
Hope you all had a fantastic break!

  4. Stompface - Argh! We should have met up and climbed onto the stage at Santogold and been extra cool backup dancers.
