Sat 12 Jul – Metelli - Ilosaarirock 2008
Sun 13 Jul – Päätösklubi - Ilosaarirock 2008
Yeah, so I didn't want to get a ticket for Joensuu's annual rock festival this year. Instead, I decided to try out drinking outside the area for the whole of 4 days with bunch of friends, some with tickets.
But there were still the clubs, which I couldn't miss for reasons like Mokoma performing at Metelli. (And since both Metelli and Päätös were only 10 €, it became really cheap way to check out other bands as well..)
My rock weekend started off with Kauko Röyhkä's free gig at Teatteriravintolan lasiterassi in Thursday 10th of July. It was very intimate and enjoyable occasion and as I got the chance to talk with the artist himself after the gig, I can say it truly made my evening. Out of the songs he performed, especially Jälleen yksi sateinen päivä caught me.
So, the friday came and went, with my friends spending their evening at the Sulo klubi.
