Had to check out that Brand New cover, and I was pleasantly surprised! Usually no-go territory in my opinion, but these guys have pulled it off beautifully. The electronic drums add a really nice touch.
May have to check out this band's own material now

Stoked to see Polar in Aberdeen, sad that no other bands in that list even have a Scottish date. So much music I would love to see.

I'm hoping the slam dunk lineup improves. It's good but not great.

They're putting everything up again in a couple of days I think, I'll include it in here next week. In the meantime, pretty much everything on there is streaming here (I think).

You know what to do. Go to the show, wing the exam.

I'm hoping the slam dunk lineup improves. It's good but not great.

Who're you hoping for? TBS, ETID, Cancer Bats, Architects & MDAM do it for me.

Wait, what? Like... onstage and stuff?

Haha, it's kind of a funny story. Basically when he jumped to the barrier he accidentally smashed the mic into my mouth and cut my lip (in three places, I later found out.) he saw this and stayed infront me giving me the mic twice. Pretty cool of him to do that, I didn't even notice it was bleeding until after the encore.

Sounds insanely cool and painful in equal measure.
