I better start packing my stuff, in one week I’ll be heading down to the south of Portugal for the Optimus Sudoeste 2003, as I have done for the past 4 years. I don’t enjoy camping that much (especially because of those vampire bugs that almost ate me alive last year) but I just can’t miss live acts like Múm, Beck, Badly Drawn Boy and of course Primal Scream. I am a music geek, and missing shows by these performers brings me nothing but misery and regret.
This year I’m going with a different crowd, last year I went with these weird dudes that did nothing but harass girls and smoke a lot of pot, of course I spent a lot of time alone or running away from them. I have this bad memory of being alone in the rain completely exhausted trying to stay awake through the hole The Cure set.
