Sorry, I'm just a little bit excited. At this time Thursday midday I'm going to be basking in the sweet sweet sexy music of Pemberton MusicFest. Ticks were bought months ago (courtesy of my bestest wife/friend Leanne as a birfday gift)and excitment has sloooooooowly been growing, but it struck me yesterday like a ton of bricks.
It's almost time! It's really here. And now muchlike Christmas I can't sleep? So much to do, so much to pack, where do start?
Well first off I'll start by telling you some of the great bands I'm going to see between Friday to Monday.
- Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
- Nine Inch Nails
- Serj Tankien (Lead singer of System of a Down)
- Sam Roberts
- Tragically Hip
- Death Cab for Cutie
- The Flaming Lips
- DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist
Yeah, are you jealous yet? You should be. That's only a snippet of over one hundred bands playing music over five days at the largest Canadian Music festival ever set to date. Forty thousand people tenting near the little town of Pemberton one hour north of beautiful Whistler, B.C. (home of the 2010 Olympics).
This is my first time camping for more than 12 hours or partaking of a festival of this size and to say I'm stoked in the understatement of the century. So much to do and so little time, and work just keeps piling up.and none of my questions come with premade answers...
Can I survive off beer and veggie burgers for five days straight?
Will either Pharell or Trent R. want to come back to my tent wth the promise of sweet lovemaking under solar panels and a gatorade popsicle?
Can I bring walkie talkies back in style?
Is beer or a ceasar a more appropriate drnk for a hangover?
Can a hair straightener be plugged into a car battery?
Will find a guest blogger by Wednesday night?
Will my pale skin finally get the tan it wants, or the pink it knows?
Wll there be any students there and how much do have to pay them to not tell the stories of their half naked drunkass instructor?
How will I survive without facebook/blogging for almost a week?
Is t inappropriate at 28 to wear a cowboy hat and throw out the devils sign during concerts?
If Gwenyth is there with Chris, think she'll share her tips on how her hair is so goddamed shiny all the time?
When Jay-Z realized just how awesome I am at rapping back '99 problems, do you think he'll invite me on stage for a mash-up?
I still have so much to do but all can do is bounce around rockng out to Freefalling n my underwear.....so pretty much the same as I'll be doing in four days!
What you can expect, when I'm "with the band"
