She is obviously a Bob Dylan fan

One reason why I'm not going to the show in Timisoara at the end of May. It's a different lot of artists, but the same deal.

I totally agree with you Kaz. This type of show is for Promoters gain, not fans. All these acts perform for their own need, and the fans of 40-50 year olds, generally hi on Cocaine and drink dancing around like they are teenagers is a horrible sight. The only reason that I am attending the show is sentimental. I'm going to make sure that in a bar called Lannigans on the Dublin quays, they will provide me with enough drink to get in and out of the venue as fast as possible. I know the owner and all the Bar staff there

It was odd in Belfast. The woman next to me couldn't understand why I wasn't enthusiastic about a really bad tribute band. She was determined everyone should dance. I didn't dance when I was a teenager so I wasn't going to start then. I was there for one band only.

"ladies and gentlemen, please light your phone's for the departed". That was a bit random! They played teen spirit and insomnia between bands, that was better craic than some of the acts. Also the lad all lit up on stilts! Ok....

She asked "Do You Want To Dance With Me", you answered "I'm not In The Mood"

Where are Alphaville? A festival named after a number 1 song and a number 1 album, and the band is not on the list!!!!


Instead, they are performing with other artists for 3 tracks in October..
