Despite my pitiful attempt at live-blogging (thwarted by my phone crashing once every minute or so) BiNs was there at Rootsville on Saturday, fully enjoying the displaced festival experience. The chance to kip in my own bed – however postponed – after getting all festivaled up is fully appreciated by an old git like me.
The Inspirals didn’t disappoint, nor did the brilliantly random line-up. Wandering to the bar and seeing an-almost string quartet jazz version of of national anthem (no idea who!) with the Dholblasters standing just off stage in full regalia (I think waiting to go on with the Destroyers) was a sight that I won’t forget in a hurry.
The wet weather obviously kept some people away, but everything tat could be organised seemed to have been done to a tee. Loved the ‘del-boy”s bars out ‘underneath the arches’, and the odd train going overhead is something that Misty’s should incorporate into all their sets.
