Last month I relived my youth while attending Hot Plains - a multi venue music festival in Edmonton. Two bands from way back when reunited and made me feel like I was in my teens once more - The Cleats and Dance Floor Disasters.

As it turns out, before I began blogging I was really infatuated with punk music and culture. The first blogs I followed were live journal communities - most notably Punk Makeup (it hasn't been active since 2011 it appears). A Wayback Wednesday post devoted to my punk days is probably the most appropriate way to illustrate how much my style has changed.

I digress. The bands I enjoyed over the weekend, aside from the reunion shows, were Michael Rault, SLATES, the Lad Mags, Dirty Dudes (AC/DC cover band) and Service:Fair. The weekend was a complete blur and I'm already anticipating next year's line up, but not before making the trek out of town for Golden West Music Fest which is sure to be a time.
