im a little too excited!

Re: Summer Sonic 08

All this and Coldplay too! ;o)

Re: Summer Sonic 08

I have to admit that I'm a bit jealous. You'll have a bloody great time!

Whether I see them or not when I'm over there, Summer Sonic would be great! I'll be going over there again in the next few years probably anyway so I'll have to time that one for a festival.

Re: Summer Sonic 08

Oh man...Devo, Polysics, New Young Pony Club...

Officially jealous.

Throw in CSS and I think I'd die of jealousy.

Re: Summer Sonic 08

my friend keeps talking about CCS, ive never heard them though, i think i'll give them a try big_smile

but apart from DEVO and POLYSICS im not too fussed about the rest of the bands
Skindred are pretty fun, i saw them years ago back when i was in school haha

so now me and Kayo can groove to DEVO together, hmm maybe i will show her my owl

EDIT: i just realised how bad that sounded, damn you innuendo's!

Re: Summer Sonic 08

You knew how bad that sounded straight away! big_smile

Hiro likes CSS I believe. I don't know them though.

big_smile

Re: Summer Sonic 08

ah,!!!! That would be the most amazing show ever.
DEVO, POLYSICS, and Maximum the Horomone!!! D8 <3

Named "perfect POLYSICS cosplay girl" by the wonderful Hiroyuki Hayashi. <3

Re: Summer Sonic 08

Aw, man! Crystal Castles are playing too?

You know, if I don't spend anything between now and then, I could do this.....
I've seen Devo before (and have been talking recently about how I really want to see them again), Crystal Castles cancelled their gig up here at the last minute, and to my shame I've never had a chance to see Polysics live yet. This could be the place to do it...

Looks like I've got me some thinkering to do.

Re: Summer Sonic 08

ah thanks for mentioning Maximum the Hormone FYEP
i got their album just now, didn't realise they did the theme to Death Note! yikes

Thanks for the mention- just got hold of their lp, and am liking it very much, Maximum the Hormone I'm about to listen to on the way to work- I liked what I saw in their videos so thanks too FYEP.

Re: Summer Sonic 08

Crystal Castles are quite good actually. I thought I should check out some of the artists playing and they're the best so far (apart from the obvious).

Re: Summer Sonic 08

Coldplay?

Re: Summer Sonic 08

As for CC... Crimewave and Air War are my current favs.

Re: Summer Sonic 08

Polysics, Devo AND Maximum the Hormone...

*cries* (I am a student)

Re: Summer Sonic 08

tickets go on sale at the end of May, soooooo glad as all my money is going towards my flight this month!
i hope more bands i like will be announced big_smile

Re: Summer Sonic 08

These have been added to the bands playing:
Queens Of The Stone Age
Death Cab For Cutie
The Kooks
These New Puritans
The Teenagers
Cafe Tacuba

i saw QOTSA years and years ago, so i'll probably see them, but im not fussed about the others.

Re: Summer Sonic 08

I don't know how to go about getting my tickets for summer sonic?
Does anyone know an English site that will sell them? hmm
I can't afford to miss this festival o.O

Re: Summer Sonic 08

Same as you man. I'm wondering how many bands there will actually be, and if there will be lots of smaller Japanese bands that don't even make the line-up announcements.

Eriko

Re: Summer Sonic 08

Eriko did offer, but im going with a few people, so i could need up to 5 tickets, and i dont really want to make eriko buy that many :\

Re: Summer Sonic 08

Is there a limit on how many you're allowed to buy? She's already buying at least four.

Stu, the only way I think you can do it is to get them sent to an address in Japan so.... I dunno man :S

Re: Summer Sonic 08

when i make my first trip to japan im totally going to make sure i see the polysics live, i mean thats like my top five things to do before i die.
also i hope the polysics have a decent stage time i have a feeling they are only going to play for 30 mins but i hope im wrong! anybody that goes make sure you reply back here with photos, setlist, a story of the whole day would be awesome, etc.
