Portugal part one - optimus alive 2014
So I went to Portugal for a few days last week to go to Optimus Alive to report for Bank Fashion. I have to admit this was one of my favourite trips of the summer even though I didnt think the festival was that strong of a line up. Maybe it just wasn't my taste but I only REALLY wanted to see three bands and one pulled out and the other is my favourite band ever. So swings and roundabouts.
We saw MGMT who are possible the most boring band I've ever seen live. I really do like their music and I think with their second album they finally sound like what MGMT "wanted" to sound like... their show is just blah. A little enthusiasm wouldn't go a miss. After we caught The Black Keys for the second time this Festival Season and they were great. It was good to see them and not be absolutely shattered like the last time we saw them in Germany. Both of us are big fans so was perfect to have a dance to!
I apologise for this post being so short! I didnt sleep at all last night, in fact I slept for like two hours from 9am to 11am. I can barely see what Im typing. I have another post from Optimus and another post about Portugal to go up over the next few days which will be a little more interesting than this one!
I went to Optimus Alive as a guest of Bank Fashion as part of Destination Unknown
