Primavera Sound came and went...gone are also 7 years off my life. The theme of Day 1 could only be described as ear-splitting...we're talking Lightning Bolt, Jay Reatard, Ponytail, The Jesus Lizard, My Blood Valentine. One Lightning Bolt show alone can severely mangle your insides, but throw some Lizard and Valentine in there, and you're in for some permanent damage. I can honestly say this was the best single day of music I have ever experienced in my entire life. It was obvious that the bands showed up to give 100%, except for Jay Reatard who gave 500%. Let's not forget that little shit Wavves having a total meltdown on stage, resulting in his drummer throwing sticks at him and walking off stage. Stay tuned for pictures from Day 2 and 3, along with some video footage. Magik Markers kicking things off proper. The all mighty Lightning Bolt! The Jesus Lizard..timeless and destructive Andrew Bird in all his pretentious glory. Jay Reatard Bummed to realize that we wouldn't hear "Where's Your Head At" because this was Aphex Twn, not Bassment Jaxx During his "epic meltdown" Wavves sucks.
