Once again I’ve been slacking and I wanted to have this written and posted yesterday but better late than never, right? And by now you know my usual rhetoric: I’ve been busy. But at least this time I’ve actually been showing you–through video no less–what it is I’ve been busy doing. And that’s exactly what I’m showing you again here…
While I wasn’t operating any of the cameras taping the bands, I was snapping pictures of the band and us (CSB) taping the bands, which is what I showed in the last post. I feel like these videos should be longer, but that’s probably because we spent most of the day there, setting up, waiting in between sound checks, “hanging out backstage with rock stars” …ya know, the usual. But enough of my blabbing, let’s get to the videos. Just a recap, this is all brought to you by The Rock 106.9 WCCC. I’m posting these in the order they were recorded.
Quick note: Kopek were really cool. We liked their music the most, and they were very down to earth to talk to, very friendly people.
Egypt Central, to be honest, I wasn’t that crazy about. First, they kicked us out for their soundcheck. But I learned a lot of artists do that, but still… After their set, however, they seemed really nice and approachable. Before the show, they seemed like they didn’t want to be bothered. I still feel blah about them overall.
Last we have Cold. I’m only posting one video because the second is less than a minute of the lead singer mumbling. Or that’s what it sounds like to me. I dunno what happened there (my headphones were way down). Anyway, they sounded sad and depressing… which I later learned is that’s kinda the music they do. So it makes sense why I’m not that fond of their music.
Overall, I had a really great time. No I didn’t love all the music played, but I got to listen to live music for free and got to take some awesome pictures and meet cool, interesting people. It was one of the best ways to spend a Friday, I think. And what my classmates and I kept reminding each other is: people do what we do for a living.
