Nothing this good ever happens to me! I got an email out of the blue one day, I was invited to Sydney – to pick a weekend to attend as much as I could of their Vivid Festival. So I picked the opening weekend, Kraftwerk was to perform its series of 8 shows, 8 albums, one per show – each show augmented with a greatest hits set. I got to see this and also Radio-Activity back to back. This one was so good I wrote about it twice. I went to a bunch of other things in one weekend, wrote them all up, light shows, talks, gigs…I then did a series of blogs about the experience too, had previewed it before hand, did the reviews and raves after.
But something must have gone wrong somewhere (Bobby Womack review perhaps?) I asked for a chance to go again and was ignored – then told in no uncertain terms that I wasn’t welcome. They sent some other hacks along who barely even covered the festival. Nothing this good ever happens to me twice!
Stubs is an occasional feature here at Off The Tracks – looking back through the ticket-stub box and remembering how the show went down.
