Big Day Out 2006
Tired and hungover after late-night drinks at Control with houseguest (couch-guest?) Martin, best mate, down from Sydney. Several lines of speed later out the door intent on seeing Sleater Kinney at 2.30. Pushing through crowds. Sleaty Kinney taut, tight, excellent. VIP tent: everybody looking for pills, too paranoid about sniffer dogs to have brought their own. Saw no dogs. Purchased ridiculously expensive cans of UDL and am subsequently broke. TZU doing art-hop. M.I.A. a powerhouse of sass. Disappointed by the Go! Team. Iggy Pop urging the crowd to climb up on stage and dance with him. Mayhem. Heat. Sweat. Miso soup. Shirtless boys aplenty. Discombobulated. Evening breeze. Coming down now. Brain fog.
