I cannot even begin to comprehend that Leonard is going for the Reading Festival in the UK in about a month’s time. A little background, every year since 20 years ago, BBC Radio 1 (my favourite British radio station, mind you) has been hosting this three-day musical extravaganza at Reading and Leeds.
When he first told me, I was like, “As long as The Kooks are not part of the line-up, then I won’t have to kill you (Leonard).” I woke up ten minutes ago thinking, “Wait a freaking minute, I know more British indie bands than that!”
Then I checked the website. I nearly screamed bloody murder.
The Kooks won’t be there.
Vampire Weekend will be.
To add insult to injury, the electro-pop genius of MGMT will also be strutting their stuff on stage.
And guess what, so will the likes of some of my favourite bands The Mystery Jets, The Ting Tings and One Night Only.
Actually, all I need is Stage One; I have totally no need for the Main Stage with only The Killers striking my musical chord.
Stage One has a vast array of dark horses who can really rock the house down, notably Santogold, The Wombats, The Last Shadow Puppets, Justice, The Cajun Dance Party, and Adam Green of Moldy Peaches fame as well as the aforementioned bands.
Seriously, can life be anymore unfair?
Yeah it can, Los Campesinos! will be performing at the Festival Stage as well.
Damn the poor Malaysian ringgit in comparison to the Pound Sterling to hell.
