Skate and Surf
So most of the OM&M fans probably already know about their set on Saturday but I didn’t post about it yet. I’m not a fan of these guys - in the sense that I never really listen to their tunes but of course I know they are a great band. I’ve never seen a full set. But their set on Saturday was one of the greatest things I’ve seen at least this year. Austin didn’t use his microphone because he didn’t want to get electrocuted. So the crowd sang the vocals with him and it was just… literally beautiful. I’ve never seen anything like that. I’ve never seen a band so happy. People talk shit and completely smash this band but all I really saw was a group of guys doing what they love surrounded by one of the most strong fanbases I’ve ever seen. As an industry professional that really blew my mind.
I’m not necessarily a fan but this was an incredible set. This guy is a grade A badass
I work at the airport and today I saw a cute guy in a Streetlight Manifesto shirt. Instead of being a normal human being and approaching him in a calm, attractive manner, I proceeded to jump up and down screaming “STREETLIGHT!! STREETLIGHT FUCK YEAH!!!”
He walked away. Briskly.
