As you know, the one band that made me become interested in music was Oasis. So, when I learned that Beady Eye (Liam Gallagher’s new outfit) was to headline the first day of the festival “Primavera 0” I didn’t have to think it long before buying the best ticket I could.
The way things turned out, I managed to make it to the very first row. Words fail me to describe how I felt when I saw Liam take the stage.
Just imagine what it’s like to stand this proximate to one of the most emblematic members of the band responsible of making a music lover out of you.
And I must also praise the opening act, Astroboy. That’s a band I really disliked back in the day, and I actively criticized it. Yet, time has let me see their transcendence within the Uruguayan scene. Their music sounded nothing short of celebratory that night. They played with real precision and determination, with an honesty and integrity that could prove the biggest nay-sayer wrong.
And you know what? Next Tuesday, the headliner is no-one else but Sonic Youth. They’re not a band that I’m crazy about, but the chance to catch up with such a legendary performer is not to be missed. Even if the show is only half as exciting as this one, it’ll be worth every cent.
