Today I got to sleep in and we went straight to Hyde Park for our second and last time. once we got to the venue we went straight to the small stage at the opposite side of the festival to see a band which were going to be first on. The band in question is called Tigercub and they have only really started getting some real traction this year and they definetly deserve it! They were amazing live! For those who havent heard of them, you definetly need to check them out! My dad and I were the first there waiting to see them start. We ere also the only two there for about 20 minutes before they started, then my step-mum and step-bro joined right as Tigercub started. Initially it was a very small crowd of about twelve of us there, but they very quickly garnered a much MUCH bigger crowd and it was awesome! Other than Tigercub very few bands were of note, but I may have just not enjoyed them as much as I would have if it wasn't as warm as it was. It was, like, 30 degrees or something insane like that!
Eventually stereophonics started and they were alright, but I was more excited for Pearl Jam to come on after them. And they definetly stepped up! I'm not sure if they were actually better the second night or if it just felt like they were because it was the last night, but either way, they were fucking awesome! It was an absolute blast and they only played two songs that had been played the night before and the crowd were just going wild. You could really feel the energy! I'm really glad I got to experience this event, shame I'm going home tomorrow~
Today I had to wake up fairly early as my family and I were going to Camden! I was not entirely pleased with having to get up early while on holiday, but it was totally worth it! We went around all kinds of different stores and I almost bought a new cassette tape, but I didn't want to waste money on a tape I probably wasn't going to listen to. However I did end up buying a denim jacket and the owner of the store offered to cut the sleeves off for me (for free too!). You can expect I will be wearing my new jacket very often! Though the back of it is a bit boring and I need something to put there. If you have any cool images or symbols you can recommend leave a message in the RSN!
After our excursion to Camden it was time for the entire reason we'd come to London. To go to Hyde Park for gigs! There were a few cool bands about the place when we arrived, but I was just hungry so I got a hotdog and walked about for a bit. I did find a Reddit booth which really surprised me, but oh well XD. We looked at a few bands and had a few drinks before Pixies came on the main stage and started to wail! They played all the songs you'd expect like Debaser, Here comes your man, and Where is my mind. I will admit that they were not as good as I'd expected, but they were still pretty awesome!
Once Pixies finished Pearl Jam were to come on, however they were late on by about 50 minutes. It didn't matter though. Their performance was absolutely amazing! Half way through it seemed like the gig was over but they exploded back onto the stage with Jeremy and totally blew the crowd away! PJ ofc had some deep cuts but they did also play most of Ten. It was honestly just amazing! So glad I get to see them again tomorrow! (Well, at the time of writing this, today).
Today I have done a few interesting things. I woke up this morning quite excited as today I was going to make the journey down to London for a festival. So I jumped out of bed and high-tailed it to Costa for my breakfast and to meet up with my family. After one breakfast wrap, a cup of tea, and a four and a half hour train ride, I arrived in the city of london. We had a small trip on the underground to get to Shorditch where we waited in a long queue to get into the Pearl Jam x Pixies pop-up shop. It wasn't the most remarkable little place, but but the selection of merchandise was cool! I ended up buying a Pixies Stone tee and a Pearl Jam sticker (Which you KNOW I will be putting on my laptop). Turns out that later that night Pixies would be playing at that location alongside Eddie Vedder! After this trip to the shop I was relieved to finally get to the hotel and drop off my bags. We didn't stay for long, so I freshened up and left for we had a show to catch!
Two more trains later and we made it to the Victoria Palace theatre where we got to see the critically acclaimed performance Hamilton! Now, My step-brother had played it many times on Disney Plus, but I never paid much attention and, therefore, didn't really get the hype.
I get it now.
I thought the play was really great! We had a great view of the performance from our seats at the edge of the Grand Circle and could see everything really clearly. The sound was great and the choreography was astounding. I always find it amazing that actors can so consistently get in the right places and do the right actions in time without mistake. It is a real skill and I commend it! All in all, a great experience!
Outfits used to be so much cooler. And comfier. I was just at a photo shoot for a guy called Mark Leslie where he took photos of me in renaissance style outfits and they were just so cool! Books were also cooler in the fact that they were all either leather bound or hardback. I wish leather bound and hardback books were more common nowadays and cheaper! Though, the hats of the time... Not so cool...
I wonder when all the college lecturer's strikes will stop? It's quite annoying that they're doing them at a time where it would be really handy to have them available... Oh well, guess we just have to wait.
This is a totally selfish rant, I just wanted to get it out.
Happy Star Wars day! Hope yours is going well and I wonder what you may get up to? I amd going to watch a few of my star wars VHS tapes and eat popcorn to commemorate the occasion!
