Roskilde Festival 2003 - Concerts
I had planned seeing a huge amount of concerts this year, but of course things never turn out the way you plan at Roskilde. Somehow I actually managed to see 19 concerts. Not all of them the entire concert of course. My first full-length concert was Stone Sour. And Angel, you were right, they ARE absolutely awesome! After that I dropped Metallica for Dave Gahan.
Friday was a busy day with an engagement party and lots of concerts. I managed to see Gåte, Asian Dub Foundation, Beth Gibbons, Turbonegro, The Raveonettes, The Streets and Iron Maiden. But only two of them as complete concerts.
The little I saw of Beth Gibbons really surprised me, because I thought the concert she held in Oslo was kinda weak and this wasn't.
I managed to catch my absolute favorite song "Funny Time of Year". It was absolutely magical!
After the Beth Gibbons camp I swung by Turbonegro before I went back to camp to see if anyone would join me to see The Streets. On my way from camp to the concert I met Robert and Felix (Zoid) and they came along.
At the concert I met Angel and she met some friends from Sweden. Roskilde is a very small place sometimes. Funny how you always run into people you know. I mean...there's 100.000 people walking around the place, and you ALWAYS meet someone you know! In my hometown there's 30.000 people and I NEVER meet anyone I know if I go out.
Another really funny thing was that I didn't actually go to any concerts at Orange at all! I was sitting next to the Orange area drinking beer with these two lads mostpart of Friday night when Iron Maiden was playing, but we didn't really pay attention to the concert.
What mattered was that we were sitting next to a Tuborg tent. So we were just sitting there being silly and drinking beer. This was after the engagement party, so I already had quite a buzz from the champagne and being silly seemed just what I needed.
And that's when I spotted this guy. I mean...LOOK at that pink thing he's wearing. I just had to take a picture. Later we went down to the caravan camp and partied some more before ending it in FistCamp. Though without Robert and Zoid, who had gone to bed.
I had planned one early concert on Saturday, but I was too tired. So the first concert I went to was The Melvins. I knew that they had played together with Fantomas (another of Mike Pattons projects) so it was with some anticipation I went to the concert hoping for some connection with Tomahawk at changeover.
Nothing happened though. Instead I spent an hour laying in the grass to the right of the Green stage (Arena) waiting for Tomahawk to begin. Magnus was waiting in line to come up front. And while doing that he also did the most funny thing ever:
He's standing in the line and we're sitting on the grass (Angel, Jois, Robban and me). Jois starts shouting "moon'a moon'a" to Magnus - and his does! Right there in the line he pulls down his trousers and shows his ass in our direction. I thought I was gonna wet myself laughing. And I am so sorry I didn't think he would do it. Cuz then there would be a photo here of it now...
Well...we both got in front at the Tomahawk concert in the end - and sweeeet Jesus...that was the best concert of the entire festival. I was blown away! I also had another great concert that night; A German synth band called Console. Really great stuff! Benny and me also saw a bit of Chicks On Speed, Blur and Immortal. Not very impressing any of it.
Then came Sunday...This was gonna be such a great day of concerts. I didn't catch all the concerts I had planned, but I got the most important one. I had three concerts to see at Pavilion; The Kills, Radio 4 and TBHP. I only saw half of The Kills, then the entire Radio 4 concert. The best part of the concert was when the singer announced:"We're the Radio 4, and I do believe we have The Black Heart Procession with us on the stage."
The band was standing in the back of the scene enjoying Radio 4 and probably checking out the scene and the crowd before their own concert scheduled a couple of hours later. I met up with Helena, Benny, Jois and Robban for the BHP concert. The intro of the first song was played on a saw!
The others only stayed with me for two songs before running over to the Orange stage to see Queens of the Stoneage. I will never regret my choice - staying to see the entire BHP concert instead of joining the others.
Song after song it only got better. They played songs from all four albums as far as I can remember. Songs like: The End of Love, Tropics of Love, A Cry for Love, A Light So Dim, Your Church Is Red, It's a Crime I Never Told You..., Blue Tears, A Sign On the Road, Sympathy Crime and lots more.
So along with Stone Sour, Console, Melvins and Tomahawk - this was one of the greatest moments of Roskilde 2003 for me.
*sigh*...and then we go home.
