Sirreene - when I looked away from the stage the snake stretched as far as the eye could see. During the day the boozers liked to amuse themselves by collecting empties this way but by the end of the day the grass was carpeted with crushed paper beer mugs wall to wall.

Anna - just exactly what I saw.

JJ - green with envy eh? I am brown with sunburn! Foo Fighters were the best big act but I also loved several of the new English Indie bands.

I saw you saw them (Placebo). And lucky you :).

Perfect Virgo said...

Anna - I love the latest album, Meds it is a big step up for them and they played almost all of it, then finished with "Special K" and "Nancy Boy."

Anna Piutti* said...

I haven't bought "Meds" yet, but I'm looking forward to that.
I love "Special K".

Fantastic photos of your incredible weekend.
I need to be indoctrinated into British music.
( your intro...or rub them: ROFL! ;)

Perfect Virgo said...

Anna - try meds (not literally of course!) I think you'll like it.

Silvermoon - just a morsel of my bone-dry humour, rubbing is therapy! Did you forget to append some letters, as in ROFLMSAAO...

Anna Piutti* said...

LOL! My daily dose of antihistamines is more than enough as far as meds...I'll try Placebo's latest remedy soon :).
