Has it really been 10 years!!

I really can’t believe it’s Slam Dunks 10th birthday this weekend  … Man I feel old I surpose I could get them at least a card, I mean what do you get a ten year old who has everything and has everyone coming to there party! 
This years lineup seem to be a big scrapbook of oldies but goodies and the new young guns (no pun intended) on the scene. Personally I like abit of both. I mean you couldn’t beat abit of moshing to Four Years Strong (yes I still have the tshirt somewhere) at the Cockpit on a Tuesday night back in the day! Now I’m more let’s listen to Panic At The Disco while I bake a Victoria sponge oh and let’s have abit of Moose Blood while I make the butter cream for the middle.What I’m trying to say is over the last ten years we’ve all changed and grown up out of are My Space days but for one day this year we can remember the good old days and get are mosh back on with the young’ns and show them how it’s done!
So in the words of Every Time I Die ‘let’s go’

Slam Dunk da funk …. The count down begins!!

So people the counts down begins to this years Slam Dunk Festival and I don’t know What the hell to wears never mind what bands to see!!!

First of all what to wear do I going casual ( casual I.e. Band t-shirt and jeans always a mine field) or do I go a abit more glam, I do have a feeling it going to be a fashion parade on the day, I mean look at Leeds Festival the biggest fashion parade of them all apart from The V festival and Glastonbury. I need something that I can go day to night (after show party wise) and that is stylish however it has to be practical ( weather wise and also when your running around leeds city centre you have to think about footwear no heels for me) ripped jeans ? T-shirt? Leather jacket?  Or a dress? These are the dilemmas. If I wear a band t-shirt which one do I wear old school or new school ? Do I go all out and wear my custom Slayer denim jacket or will I get laughed at for wearing it! All big desisions  and that’s before Ive even picked the bands I want to see !! Ahhhhh I need help!! 

Hears what I’m thinking so far  

made by my fair hand


What would go best with this  ?? 

Dress or black Jeans and t-shirt ?

Help a girl out what would you wear ?
