Big Day Out Aftermath

Must stay positive...

I have absolutely no access cash left after a weekend at Brisbane/Gold Coast for Big Day Out. All I have to show for it is this singlet and a lot of beer hazy memories.

Big Day Out was extreme. And by that I mean scorching hot. The idea of a crowded moshpit of bogans numbering in their hundreds under an Australian 38+ degree sun quickly loses its appeal, but was fun enough for My Chemical Romance's set.

MC Macromantics rocked the house in wee hours of the morning (11:30am), and the Killers went off: see the boys put game face on for it.

I'm not a big Tool fan, so things died down for the evening finale spectacular which we viewed from the secluded bar on the hill to lick our wounds. I did get into a bit of the spirit for Muse, which I really didn't think was the kind of music to get my friends as pumped as they were.

By the time we got back to our hotel in Surfer's we'd lost all will to even go for a quick dip in the pool, let alone head out to the Casino. Sigh, maybe next time.

Other highlights of the voyage included venturing through the creepy, psychadelic halls of the Infinity experience, all-you-can-eat breakfast at Boardwalk - Chateau Beachside, not getting punched in the face, and being told by some girls that the local gay bar was the place to go (sigh, even city girls think I'm creepy).

OMG. I am almost forgot to mention surprise act That 1 Guy. Following up from Macromantics was this awesome guy with what looked like a vacuum cleaner crossed with a bass attached to a drum. It doesn't sound like a lot, but he rocked the house. Check out this news footage, then watch this video clip and be in awe.

BTW how can I have fun on Australia day with no money (idea:pool, beach and JJJ Hottest 100 countdown)
