Nice, I didn't buy it as I heard it was very US centric and kind of skips over other scenes but I'll give it a watch now.

Edit: Fuck Digby,

Suprised that it’s taken this long, but Download 2020 has now officially been cancelled.

Refunds are being offered, but they’re also allowing tickets for this year to be honoured for Download 2021

Supersonic's been cancelled too, individual bands aren't rescheduling until September time so it's going to get real busy around then.

Gutted about Download, because it was one of the best line ups for me, but whatever. With an undertaking that size which I've already done a few times, I'm very much of the opinion of thinking of the bother I've saved my body, take the cash windfall from the refund and decide if I want to go next year or not. None of this saving the tickets crap. Not with something this size.

Been playing an Aussie punk band called The Chats on repeat today after finding them in the latest 2000 Trees announcement. Really liking their sound, worth a checking out for people looking for a new band.

The video for Smoko seemed to be fucking everywhere in 2017. Their album came out today. Saw them on tour just before Christmas and I feel like they've blown up way faster than they can properly handle. They were playing the main academy room and seemed completely out of their depth. Good band though but they really suit tiny dingy venues rather than the massive rooms they're playing.

And based off that sentence, as you can guess they've put them on the outdoor main stage this year, rather than one of the tents where Dune Rats absolutely ripped the place apart last year.

Jim from Jimmy Eat World has been playing acoustic sets in empty rooms/venues last couple of Friday's and they've been great.

Showcases just what a strong songwriter he is and what a lovely voice he has. This was yesterdays.

That new Code Orange record is bang average. I don't get the hype at all. There's some decent songs in there but the over-the-top production really distracts from it. I can imagine they'd sound better live though. I quite like the Dillinger Escape Plan-esque bits when it goes slow and quiet.
