Eff you, kitty.

Yesterday, lazenich, digicowboy, ivywag and myself went to see The Presidents of the USA in concert. I admit, I only really knew of their "big" songs, Lump, Kitty, Peaches, but I had an absolutely fantastic time. They were amazing live, loads of energy and heaps of fun.

There were two warmup bands; one was a Bristol based guy called Kid Carpet who wasn't very good at all. He got progressively better as his (short) set went on, but the only real appeal was that he used a few toy instruments for his (Happyhardcore/dance type, and therefore not really to my taste at all) songs.

Then we had Jrock! Oh god, these guys, what were they called?, Electric Eel or something, were from Japan and played the most awesome heavy metal stuff. They were so much fun, if a little batshit. At the end of the Presidents' set, they came out and handed the audience a crate of Jagermeister.

So yes. It was a great evening. We ended up back at Wix's (ivywag's) place, ordering pizza, playing Guitar Hero and watching Family Guy and Nevermind The Buzzcocks. NERDS.

They split up for a while, but reformed a couple of years ago, and made 'Love Everybody', and then 'These Are The Good Times People' which came out a couple of weeks ago. (I was really surprised, I found out they'd reformed by hearing the single 'Some Postman' in a train station and thinking 'Hey, that sounds like the Presidents, I wonder who it is' and googling it only to find it sounded like them because that's who it was. XD)

Fantastic! I'll have to hunt down the more recent stuff. :3
