In other things completely unrelated, I got me a ticket to see Dinosaur Jr in Vicar Street, Dublin yesterday after Steven tipped me off about the gig happening. SO PSYCHED for it, even though it’s like 3 months away yet.
Given that the Oxegen Festival is 5 months off, and ridiculously expensive, and filled with fresher acts that I can probably see whenever the hell it pleases me (like: at it NEXT YEAR) I think I’ll give spending €250 on 3 days of gigs and booze a pass in favour of €35 for a few hours with a band that I actually really want to see, and missed when they were here for a day or 2 last year.
Which also means I’m sacrificing buying Red Dead Redemption to the cause. Sorry Marston, but you gotta take one for the team.
So on that note, I’ll leave you with Dinosaur Jr playing “Been There All The Time” at SXSW last year.
