Noise!

So much noise in my ears last night, thank goodness for ear plugs! 

I don't know what I'm doing up already (we got home at 1 o'clock this morning) but I am so I might as well make the most of it. First thing I did was upload the few pictures I had taken at the concert so that I could show you. Here we go:

On our way to the venue in Ballard/ Seattle


The first band was called 'Feedtime' and they came all the way from Australia. The closest I could compare them to was a mix of the Sex Pistols (Johnny Lydon/ Rotten screams etc) and the low and intense baselines of Joy Division. It all sounded much like a garage band where the members are around 18, when in fact they were closer to 60! The quality of playing was plain bad but they had a great time themselves which makes it more fun for us to observe of course!  <wink>

I thought these guys were the (old) roadies.
Turns out they were the actual band...
During the intermission we met up with a colleague and his friend and we were wondering where Kim (from Soundgarden) was. Turns out he had been so busy with his own band, he totally forgot! So typical... {smile} 

Here are some pictures of our surroundings to give you a better taste of the venue..




Anywho, Mudhoney came on and they sounded very tight. Mark Arm (the lead singer) had just turned 50 (yes, we are in that age group now) and he sounded great! Unfortunately this is really not my kind of music and it was really loud  (I mean Really Loud), but lo and behold, there were lots of people pogo-ing and crowd surfing!!! I hadn't seen that in years and I felt all 'young' again. No worries, I had no inclinations whatsoever to join them, even though I was wearing my tall Doc Martens!  <wink>

Since I dragged Mr. G. to that (totally awesome) 'Erasure' concert last Fall, the least I could do was to accompany him to one of his kind of concerts...




The ear plugs (that we bought at the bar) totally saved us and my ears are just fine now. We drove home through the pouring rain and jumped straight in to bed. When we woke up (the alarm went at 5:45!) we saw this:






Can you believe it? Snow again! But, it is all melting now and the sun has actually come out so it is rather pretty. I might even go for a walk later on... First some breakfast I think...

PS But then I read Annie's post and lost all my appetite...
