I went to the Bamboozle festival this Saturday in New Jersey. Like Warped Tour, its sort of a festival with a lot of great bands playing all in one day.

The weather was pretty lousy, it was drizzling and cold all day, but I still had an amazing time.

I saw:

Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Streetlight Manifesto
Jack's Mannequin
The Bravery
Jimmy Eat World

If you ever get a chance to see Ludo perform live, do it. They're amazing in person and actually really funny! For those of you who haven't heard them yet, I think two of their best songs are Love Me Dead and lake Pontchartrain. Go listen!!

Also: The first official Twilight movie trailer!! *hyperventilates* I've watched it about 10 times already...
See it here:

wow, sounds like a great show. i love Ludo. i love the humour they put into their song lyrics and their videos are really funny (escpecially Love Me Dead). my favorite Ludo song is Goodwill Hunting By Myself. LOVE IT!

i, like many others, love the twilight series but i dont wanna see the trailers cuz i want to be surprised and amazed by the entire movie when i go and see it. im just that kind of person.

i saw them with OAR about... wow i feel old, a year and a half ago. Sadly enough, they didn't play my favorite song, Miss Delaney, but it was still pretty sweet. I prefer Something Corporate though, even though I find that band WAY too emo sometimes.

yeah, that's a poem by alan ginsberg that I absolutely adore. actually everything by ginsberg i adore. 90% of his stuff is psychadelic rantings, but the 10% that he actually spent more time with rational as opposed to emotion is amazing...

EMD said...

oh yeah, and the twilight movie... i'm sorry but the actor don't look like their charactors in the book at all. i was disappointed.
