Or so I hope. A whole bunch of my favourite bands (namely The Griswolds, Velociraptor, Cub Scouts, DZ Deathrays) have been in the UK for The Great Escape music festival. Of course, I wish I was there. I love England in particular. I love English people. I wish I lived in London (for at least a bit, anyway). (I also wish I lived in Brisbane, but that’s a story for another day.) I am waiting out for a music festival that will have a lot of my favourite bands. There has been Groovin The Moo, and Splendour in the Grass, to name a couple of festivals. But the one that has really been my cup of tea, especially speaking from experience, is Homebake. A lot of local talent, a really chilled festival, and a whole heap of bands that I do like. Homebake isn’t until early December, so I’m going to have to endure this freakishly cold autumn and a possibly colder winter before that rolls around.
