Punk Rock: Classic and Modern

The REOFFENDERS are on an indefinite break. Never say never, but we currently have no plans to play. However, we had joy and we had fun... and we blogged about it. Enjoy reading and reliving some good times.

Crazy Weekend Part One

This weekend, the REOFFENDERS have 4 gigs back to back with a plane ride in between! Yowser! Exciting stuff and a weekend that promises very little sleep.

We started last night at the Vintage in Wellington. We were expecting to play a hot and sweaty gig inside but because so many people were expected, landlord Dave decided we could play outside seeing as the weather was being well behaved. Normally we'd bring our big PA for this and mic up the drums but we managed to get a good sound with our baby PA and a couple of vocal mics put on the drumkit. Bodge it.. yeah!

Rob, Madge and Indy were struggling with cold limbs as we started but a bit of leaping around sorted that out and we soon warmed through. The Wellington lot responded with leaping around of their own and well behaved carnage ensued. We did have two guys fall over the monitor which Rob brilliantly avoided. I'm actually surprised it hasn't happened before! But it was an accident and the guys picked themselves up and with nothing broken (speakers or bones) they carried on moshing.

Dave arranged for the kebab shop to deliver us a takeaway while we packed up (how awesome is that???) and we scoffed chips on the way home in a tired but happy kinda way.

Next stop.... Watchett Festival
