Yesterday my father and I went to the Laneways music festival in Auckland, there were many bands but we only listened to a few. all round it was on the whole a great time with some very interesting bands playing some great music. quite an experience and a new one for me certainly as it was 18 and over which of coarse means that I am only just qualified to go... though when my father and I went for a walk outside the noisy festival grounds there was some younger kids who were most likely 14 asking for wrist bands to get in... do they really expect that anyone would look at them and not see they were clearly not 18 or over? anyway pictures some are mine others my fathers Oh and feel free to look up their music for 2 of the bands I'll put up some of their songs
First up we saw the end of the Kings of convenience a Norwegian band, for them it was their first time in New Zealand and they had only been here 6 hours before they played at the festival.
Later we Saw Polica the band included 2 drummers both with whole drum kits so that was quite interesting to listen to as its very different when there are 2 drummers playing at once but playing different parts. sorry my music jargon is almost limited to nothing.
THEN WE SAW A KIWI BAND The Phoenix
foundation they made it all the way from... Wellington, they had a monster sized band. I am also going to give you a clip of their song Buffalo.
AND NOW we move onto Of Monsters and Men they are Icelandic and perhaps the best band there that day. they got the crowed very involved and as such I think they deserve a a few of their tracks up here
Well there you go folks there is a small peak at what I saw last night :-D if You go Look up Laneway festival you can find all the bands there OR.... look at the back of the T-shirt I got there. Anyway hope you have a nice day... and I hope you like the music, if its not your things that's fine we all have different tastes.
