I´m off to this in a few hours – Pray for me…..

01 Jul

apparently there is a concert of the millenium happening this evening….

As part of the “inspired by Iceland” campaign (see this post for more info), there was going to be a big gig on this evening at the Seljalandsfoss waterfall in southern Iceland. But apparently God still hates Iceland for allowing teh gayz to be treated like every other schmuck and has placed Southern Iceland under a storm warning (ha!). so the concert has been moved and is now going to be at Hjómskálagarður, a small park in downtown Reykjavik.

There are going to be quite a few acts playing tonight. Some of them are not too bad. Some of them are truly awful to watch. That the way the cookie crumbles.

Oh yeah… there will be a few foreign acts there as well. Damien rice, Glen Hansard and spiritualized acoustic Mainline. Apparently Coldplay and Muse were busy washing their hair

I´m going to be sort-of covering the gig for the Grapevine (read: I´ll go there, write it up but it will probably get spiked due to review having a 500 word rant about getting into a fight with the ducks from the nearby pond).

So i´m not going to prejudge tonight’s proceedings, but seeing as most of the best acts will only be “phoning in” pre-recorded songs from placed around Iceland, i´m going to be taking a lot of alcohol with me….

If you seriously want to know more. all tonights info is here.

I´m not paid enough for this shit….
