Oh, and before I forget...

Last year I went to Oppikoppi for the first time. It was my birthday and I had the most awesome time ever. Imagine my horror, then, at finding out my brother is getting married on Oppikoppi Easter. So inconvenient.
But wait! Liam took Rudi to Oppi for the first time a few years ago, and his response was something like 'Wow'. And this year [in 18 days to be precise] Ashtray Electric will play there for the first time. Liam has a shoot all day on Saturday, but he is determined not to miss their debut.
After little convincing from Liam's side, we have a plan of action: I will fly down a day earlier. He picks me up, we drive like lunatics to Northam, watch Ashtray, and drive back. A decent night's sleep [for us, anyway], and I can go to my wedding, he can do his shoot. I cannot wait! Dates are 24-26 April, and line-up [those that vaguely matter] goes as follows:
Albert Frost
Ashtray Electric
Black Hotels
ETC Crew
Foto Na Dans
New Holland
One Sock Thief
The Arrows
The Pretty Blue Guns
Van Coke Kartel

Dang that sucks!

I had the same predicament this year with RAMFEST. My sister got married on the same weekend and I had a gig the morning 2'0 clock before the wedding. Talk about bad timing. Had to cancel the gig unfortunately.
