Never Say Die tour - Paris this Saturday!

So guys, on an entire night without sleep in order to fix my sleeping pattern ( I haven't been able to fall asleep before 5am for awhile) I headed off to the train station today. After a nice 30 minute bike ride along the riverside, I shackled up my bike and wearily headed to the ticket office.

As I approached the counter part of me was kinda excited, I mean although I do get nervous, I genuinely do enjoy speaking French when I have to. So after double and triple checking that I was indeed heading off to Paris this Saturday (30/10/2010) and not Bratislava next April, I arranged to leave this Saturday, and return the following day.

Now, why am I going to Paris? A day trip? Kinda. To sight see? Hell no.

For those of you who haven't been victim to my constant Tweeting, this Saturday is the Paris leg of the Never Say Die tour. If you're into similar music as me you'll be well aware of what this tour is and how many awesome bands are playing it.

So, why trek all the way from Strasbourg to Paris for a gig? Well this isn't just any gig.

This is Never Say Die 2010





So, why am I spending a ridiculous amount of money on train fair and probably on merch? And spending a long time travelling?

Well all of these bands to me are AWESOME! That's why. And being a hugeeee fan of Your Demise I am so stoked to see these guys live again. Oh and after Tweeting them about how excited I was and how far I was having to travel, they said they would try and get my on the guest list!


However, this gig has it's ups and downs for me. When this tour once announced I practically exploded with excitement. Halloween with all my friends and all these awesome bands and only 45 minutes away! AMAZING! Then I realised I would be in France for these dates and felt disappointed that I couldn't go. At a stretch I joked 'Ha. I'll just go to the Paris leg,' although this was just to kinda hide my jealously.

As October loomed nearer, the goal of going to Paris for an all day Hardcore festival didn't seem to hard to achieve. And now, I hold the tickets in my hand.

This Saturday, I am going to bouncing off the walls like a little kid. I am going to go absolutely mental. Going to show these Frenchies how us UK kids do it best!

The slight downside, well I'm going to have to kip on the station floor again, but this is so going to be worth it!

  2. Nice that you're going, it would have been a shame to miss it just because you weren't in the UK. Never been to a gig in another country :(

  3. I've read that one of the better ways to adjust/realign your sleeping pattern is to also alter your eating patterns. Like get your full calories (1200-2000) in before when you usually like to be asleep.
    Apparently food > sleep when it comes to circadian rhythms.

    While I have no clue who the bands involved are. Seems like fun.

    Also, I had to look up what 'kip' meant because I am not well-traveled. :)

  4. Nice that you want to learn Russian! It's the first language I picked up seriously, and while challenging, it's crazy hard. I learn German too, but could never get my head around French in school.
