Southside Festival 09

60 Reasons

At this year's Southside Festival with 60 great acts the weather stank but I got to see many of my favorite bands and some unknown to me. Food courts get better every year at Southside, the whole organization was great again. Easy in, great to be there, long way out.

The line-up was great again, 50'000 folks came out despite the stinky, rainy weather. But it didn't pour all the time fortunately. I did particularly look forward to the Silversun Pickup'sThe Wombats (beautifully funny and energetic) and Disturbed.

The Editors impressed me much with their dark, clean show but what knocked me off my feet was The Mars Volta! These guys are just epic!
