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’

Post Party comedown !!

So where just about recovered from Saturday’s Slam Dunk festival which was a rousing success on everyone’s part! With the combination of excellent bands old and new (Moose blood being the highlight for me ) and the great chilled atmosphere, seeing old friend and making new ones, it was really a awesome day and night !! 

Over the seven stages there was a great mix of old and new from the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Reel Big Fish ,Gallows, Don Bronco,The Bronx , The  Wonder Years, Neck Deep  and of cause You Me At Six! Each stage was bustling  with some of the  venues having what seemed mile long ques to get in (Leeds Beckett Inparticular) Moose Blood was packed to the rafters with a one in one out policy, these boys predict  there going to be huge ! The night was finished off with a massive after party at the Leeds Areana for the famous Slam Dunk club night and boy was it big the Areana floor was packed with cluber shaking there tell feathers to old and new classics,  bringing back lots of happy memories for me of many a Tuesday night at the Cockpit shacking my tush   ! So here’s to amazing success and bring Slam Dunk 2016!!
