Oh my days. Such a fucking good time yesterday at Slam Dunk North.
I saw Decade, Hellogoodbye, A Rocket To The Moon, Not Advised, While She Sleeps, The Starting Line (only got the see the end of Best Of Me but Im so glad I didnt miss it, the sing along was epic), Less Than Jake (after seeing MCR, it had to be the best/happiest gig moment of my life, maybe one of the best of my life <3 ) and 3OH!3.
The BBQ, djs and the atmosphere was soooooo good but the prices for booze was ridiculous!!! But I did get rather tipsy which explained the fucking dancing lololol
I LOVE how I got to see Hellogoodbye who I saw at the first ever Slam Dunk Fest 5 years ago, it was my first ever gig too so it was lovely.
Been waiting for A Rocket To The Moon to get their arses to the UK for tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime and I only saw the last half of the set but they were really good.
Not Advised are getting too good. Propper love them.
Also been waiting a while to see While She Sleeps but true to form they were fucking epic. Propper nice guys too so I joined the club & bought a tshirt.
Ended up nearly missing The Starting Line since they clashed but I was determined to hear Best Of Me and I caught the last bit from 'Turn our music down, and we whisper' and the epic sing along at the end. So I was super happy to have witnessed that! lol
Then I whipped off on my own to the barrier to wait for Less Than Jake who I’ve been waiting pretty much half my life to see. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have known real music at such a young age and I doubt I’d be the person I am today. My teacher used to play Hello Rockview in class when I was in year 5 and my favourite song was obviously All My Best Friends Are Metalheads and when they played it I nearly shed as tear I was so fucking happy. I can remember singing to it when I was like a little bit older than my little brother which is strange to think about but made it all the more special <3 Propper love that I went on my own too because I was 1 from the barrier where I got a smile from Roger <3 and being on my own meant I had no one to moan at me and no one to stop me from singing and dancing like a complete tit. I loved the crowd because normally at the front its too cramped to move but everyone was moving and dancing and it was an amazing atmosphere and the set was actually epic and included Sponge Bob Squarepants and Scooby Doo. As you do.
3OH!3 were soooo good. I really do love those guys because they started out as really normal guys, abit nerdy too I’d say and their roots are in real hip hop, rock and dance music, not the chart shit and even though they’re getting really famous now they still have time to play little festivals like Slam Dunk and play it like a rock show and they’re so down to earth and stick to their roots and their old stuff. And they’re not afraid to act like proper geeks doing their funny dances (although they didn’t do the 'just set them up to knock them down' dance which I was gutted at hah ).
Then the afterparty was cool. Saw Chris from Less Than Jake twice but he was surrounded by friends or girls and they put me off going up to him and I ended up leaving before I caught him on his own :( but watching Hellogoodbye dance behind me like complete nut cases was actually hilarious, although they too were surrounded by girls who at one point were actually jumping onto them. No word of a lie.
