This weekend has been a quiet one. Fatigue from my day job caught up with me and I indulged in an afternoon nana-nap, only to wake up to the messages of friends asking if I was still coming to Annie & Bern’s gig. Whoops!
Annie & Bern played with Lisa Crawley & Band https://www.facebook.com/lisacrawleymusic in Brunswick. Disappointed to miss Annie and Bern, and the chance to check out Lisa live for the first time. I’ve heard good things about Lisa!
But not all was lost. I chose some of the colours for my next crocheted blanket and decided on the pattern…
and listened, mostly, to Radiohead. I decided to crochet to sounds of The Bends and OK Computer after declaring Radiohead’s concert at Festival Hall in 1998 is the best big concert I have ever been to. Incongruous activities appeal to me!
Being asked “What’s your favourite band? Song?”, puts me in a state of panic. I can’t do it. There are songs and bands for just about any occasion; (expect country and western). So it came as a surprise, even to me, that I made such a declaration, “Radiohead at Festival Hall = best concert ever”.
What made it the winner? Twice during the concert I was rendered speechless with tingles running up and down my spine. My friend was jumping and down and yelling, but I couldn’t join him. I was stuck to my spot; gobsmacked, in awe over how amazing and beautiful they were.
Before going to the concert I was just a regular Radiohead fan, but hearing them play live put them up on a pedestal that no other band has been able to take since. I still don’t have a favourite band, but Radiohead at Festival in 1998 was sublime.
Need a reminder of them in the 90s?
