Friday 27th of February, 2009 – Melbourne Showgrounds, Melbourne.
We arrived at the Melbourne Showgrounds a little later than expected, as the car park lines were quite long. Although we entered the venue pretty easy with no queue at all, then making our way to catch the last five minutes of Madina Lake’s set which featured ‘Here I Stand’ and ‘True Love’
Less Than Jake
Firstly we sat down in the stands to watch the performance from Less Than Jake. I hadn’t heard any material from the American ska punk band prior to Soundwave, the set was average…although it brought one of the most humorous moments of the festival. The band told the crowd in the moshing area to run around the sound/lighting tent.
The Mixed Tape
Holiday From Real
La La Lie
Jack’s Mannequin was one of the acts I was most excited for at Soundwave…
