You guys who are going HAVE TO check out Gogol Bordello! These guys are amazing. They're a Ukranian band singing Gypsy Punk type of music. I saw them live earlier this year and it was one of the best shows i've seen! So much going on on stage and their music just kicks so much ***!
I really recommend that you guys go check em out, but keep in mind that's it not the average punk music that you're all used too. If your open minded you have to see them play.. or atleast *cough* download *cough* some of their music.
Oh, I didn't even notice them on the list. I'll definitely check them out as I've heard nothing but great things of their live show.
Bottle wars were GREAT! Except one of my friend got hit by a full Pepsi bottle... and couple o' minutes later, I got hit by a CD, thrown like a chinese star. I've bled, but still good memories.
Were you there for the Grass war?
Hmmm I don't recall that... Which year was it?
I remember the first tour was in the parking lot near the Big orange of Decarie. the mush pit was so big that it made a giant cloud of dust rise during Penny and NOFX. Had to get out and blow black tar out of my nose... lost a good shirt that day. When I look back at the stage you couldn't even make out the band.
In retro spec bad site,
but the Lolapalooza site was much better the first time they came to Montreal.
Ahhhhhhhhhh young and stupid... that's the way to go.
their latest cd might not be that great, but i've yet to meet someone who didn't like I Am The Movie, which came out in 2002, or 2003. The year I went to Orlanda, and bought it there. you should know when that is :p
