I used to really like them. But since seeing them at Slam Dunk in May and being ridiculously disappointed, I can’t stand them.
Today has been incredible! Looking forward to sorting through and editing all my photos tomorrow :)
Caught Tony Thaxtons drum stick after Motion City Soundtrack, met Shane Henderson, who didn’t get my joke and thought I’d insulted him, awkward… we worked things out though :p also met Joe from Transit again and Matt from Set Your Goals for the first time which was pretty sweet :)
Into it, Over it was an amazing surprise. I had no idea what to expect but I was blown away by his set. Incredible guitarist and awesome songs :)
Say Anything played, as I expected, a great set and I even saw a guy cry when they came on. I’m assuming with happiness :p I met a lass before their set who shared the same passion I have for Max Bemis and the Say Anythings which was cool. Never met a SA fan before.
Lower Than Atlantis were, erm… poor.
Taking Back Sunday weren’t as amazing as I’d hoped. Adam was a mental twat and was far too full of himself. When he came up to the barriers near me, people were grabbing at him and I thought to myself ‘do you really wanna touch that??’ Sound quality for main stage was pretty poor throughout the day, so I guess that wasn’t TBS’s fault.
Hope I can go back again next year!

First song you heard by 6?:
The Kill, I saw the video for it on TV and snubbed it off as emo shit. This was when I was in my Indie phase. I now LOVE that song and every other song written by this AMAZING band :D
Favourite song by 8?:
Oooh tricky one! :/ It used to be Blood Brothers but I think Dead Cell may have taken first place now.
What impact has 1 left on your life?:
They changed EVERYTHING!! I was still an Indie fag when I first heard Sic Transit Gloria by them and after several listens to the album Deja Entendu I fell madly in love with the band. I then started listening to other emo/alt bands and as a result my taste in genre changed completely.If it wasn’t for Brand New I would be NOTHING like I am now.
What’s your favourite lyric by 5?:
“I’ve been trying to discover, something that can last forever” - True Love 1980.
What is your favourite song by 7?:
Hmmm, ‘Oh Yeah’ probably. Was the first song I heard by them and probably the one I enjoy listening to the most. Closely followed by ‘Shake! Shake!’
Are there any songs by 3 that make you sad?:
TBS? Sad songs!? Yeah a few… probably ‘Your Own Disaster’ is the most depressing song, but I love it. “I don’t think you know what you’ve been missing”
What is your favourite song by 9?:
Again, difficult decision. I love nearly every song by Dashboard. ‘Vindicated’ or ‘Stolen’ I can’t choose between the two.
When did you first get into 2?:
I first heard them on Tony Hawks American Wasteland and I liked the song on there but then I didn’t listen to them for a few years. Then one day I wanted to find the song from Tony Hawks again and I then started listening to the rest of their music.
How did you get into 3?:
One of my friends I met at Uni told me to listen to Taking Back Sunday because they were similar to Brand New (not sure if I’ve mentioned this but I LOVE BRAND NEW!!). I told her that no one sounds like Brand New but I’d give them a listen.
What’s your favorite song by 4?:
Days of the Phoenix is pretty sick but then so is Darling, I Want to Destroy You… so one of them :)
What’s a good memory with 10?:
Never seen them live, but they remind me of Scrubs because that’s where I first heard them.
Is there a song by 1 that makes you happy?:
There aren’t really any happy songs by Brand New, but they have lots of songs that pretty much spell out how I feel about certain things and that makes me happy :) Seventy Times Seven is one that cheers me up.
Which of the above is your absolute favourite?:
BRAND-MOTHER FUCKIN-NEW!!!!!! Hands down.
