Notes From Das Boot 27

6/19/09, Nova Rock Festival, near Vienna (and by near, I mean nowhere near)

Well the twenty hour drive from Eindhoven only took eighteen hours. To help people sleep we ran the movie Valkyrie starring Tom Cruise (spoiler alert, They didn’t kill Hitler). We got to Nova Rock and had some dinner, I don’t think the undercooked spare ribs (a “near Vienna” specialty) was the right way to go, even though I tried to counteract it by eating a salad and having a yogurt. I saw part of Mastodon’s show, I also saw some of Faith No More and thanks to new festival sound technology they sounded exactly the same; a lot of low end grunt, a bit of shrill skree and somebody yelling “thank you” after each song.
