Default gig report

hi every1
heres my gig report,we left our hotel at 9.30 on sunday morning,stll a bit hungover,we got to tenian about 10.30 and walked for age looking for the suikerrock site,it was really strange not a person in the street no signs to say were u were going it was so quiet,we were beginning to think we were at the wrong place,and then we got to the bottom of a street and there it was,a lovely market square with this huge stage at one end,myself and kim just looked at each other and said oh my god wot is this place,it was all open no gates u could just walk up to the stage and stand,ub40s crew were on the stage settin up at that point so we watched them for a while,and then went for a wonder,it was amazing every one was going about there business,all the bars were opened there was a big church at the other side of the square cars driving across it,u have never seen anything like it,
so by this time it was about 11am and we went to have a seat,and who was walking across the square but astrid she looked as gobsmaked as we were so she shouted us over and the others were sitting at the bottom of the square so we went and joined them tina and ness eloisa and astrid the best peeps u will ever meet,we got our tickets they gave u a band to put on and when they shut the square ready for the gig we got to stay in there so that was cool, no waiting about straight to front of the stage we went, i tell u gobsmaked again,we all kept saying this is bizarre never seen anything like it have u,lol the rain came down big time just after we got our spot and i mean big time we all ran for cover we must have looked like right loonies,we all got soked,but there was no stoping us as soon as it went off back to front of the stage we went,so 2.30 came and on came the first band dont ask me there name but they were crap and the next and the next,it was all dutch didnt no a word we asked a policeman wot 2 do and he said we could get the bus so we went to the bus station and all the bus stopped at 10.30 wot a plonker he was lol
there was nothing else but taxi we got back to the hotel 100 euros down for the taxi and there was a couple of peeps lurkin in the shadows it was millie bianca37 dees and linda,and the hotel had shut the doors and they could not get in so they came with us,poor lee was dying for a beer,we went to the bar but they had shut that aswell,so we sat in the lobby and i went 2 my room and got my bottles of vodka and gin raided the mini bar for beer for lee it was great fun,the band arrived back at the hotel about 2
but most didnt stay down as the all had hangovers from the day before,they were looking the worse for wear,so we drank with micky and lawrance until about 5.30,and we all went to bed
so hope u enjoy the read
big love
paula
