What a killer gig. Sorry if I seemed a bit miserable towards the end of the night, I'd been pacing my drinking all day which resulted in a hangover too early and not being drunk enough to cope with it. Still, I had a cracking time, Salute were definitely the band of the night for me, absolutely crushing! Maybe it was because I was feeling so rough, but I didn't enjoy thee 'oof as much as I thought I would have.
I had a great time. I had a similar problem to Dan, I think - I got my pacing all wrong and had a bit of a daytime hangover during Salute, but I was cheered right up by the fantastic set Darkest Era played.
Cracking day all round for me - great to see some familiar faces and meet some new people too. I'm now really looking forward to September 12th...
Must say a big thanks to everyone that organised and helped out. As Wayne said to me yesterday, Reanimator is the only place I'd trust with my £5 or £10 to put on a bunch of ace bands and cracking all-round gigs. Hats off boys and girls.
Yes, the peanut smugglers were pretty offensive. One of them was incredibly rude as well. Outside he asked Amanda for a fag, she walked all the way to the car to get her stuff, rolled him one, and he just took it and walked off without even saying thank you. Cunt.
I think I've decided that pacing is for gays, I'm getting old and knackered now, and I really can't handle my booze like I used to be able to. Next time, I'll wait till the end and get slaughtered! Still, that aside it was a really great day! ;D
