Music:'Every Coin' - Spring Offensive (in my head)
So, is anyone planning to go to All Tomorrow's Parties: The Nightmare Before Christmas? If you've not been before, it's a festival where they take over a holiday camp in the bleak midwinter and fill it full of more or less obscure bands. Sometimes I worry that it's a cover story for some sort of hipster cull, but I've been to a couple and come back to tell the tale. The tale is this: it is super fun if you arrange share a chalet with a bunch of cool people. Drinking cava cocktails more-or-less constantly also helps to give the whole affair an air of louche decadence. You will see some excellent bands, and maybe one or two that are so awful they actually punch through your critical faculties and make you glad that you've had that experience, if only as a sort of baseline for future musical interactions. Anyway, this is what it was like last time I went, and I'm totally up for going again if we can get a group together.
