Sunday 19th January
Mario's first time ever at the Big Day Out! He's actually never been to any music concert or festival ever, except for that one time on the Sunshine Coast that he saw something something near Noosa. I think. It was the something Cartel, every time he says their name I just think of the mafia. If he told me he saw the mafia jamming one day that would be cool!
We had a great day, and saw acts like Grouplove, Bliss n Eso, Pez, Kingswood (for a split second), many others, and also the great Pearl Jam. Vitalogy was my first ever CD that I bought for myself and I still love it to this day. It was a dream to finally see them. My only regret was that i had to leave early because we had to drive 2 hours back to the Sunshine Coast to get ready for work the next day, and we're sensible kids. As you can see in the photo above we're already buggered, and this was about 40mins before we left. True to form, I was super unlucky in that it meant I missed hearing Pearl Jam sing “Alive”, one of my favourite songs. Gutted. But overall a good day, and Mario even enjoyed some of the music he heard!
