I've decided to don't go at the spanish festival in June (Screamin fest) to meet my BF at Allasac (Allasac is between Paris and Montpellier)
As, i move with 4 other friends in a tiny car i didn't bring enought hot clothes in my tiny lugage bag. Brrrrrrr it was so cold !!!!!
The organizator made a great room for music and record hops. I was very pleased to see "the Playboys" from britain and my fav french DJ's.
Organisators had particular attentions for everybody and do their best to make a pleasant festival.
I only regret one thing : old skinheads/psychobillies are involved in this kind of event. They all looked the same : greased hair, cheap overalls, harrington or perfecto jacket, 40/45 years old acting as they were rockabilly with only one song of Burnette in their ipods, they are not fun at all and all arrogants....They had probably forget that rockabilly movement was a teenager thing in the 50's and they are too old for that. They forget also to smile.
British people presents during the festival spent their time to laught at them. What a shame those people are for other international musicals afficionados. Again my country is seen as a country of dorks and fake rockers :/ really not cool.
Ok it was my little rant about the french assholes, now the pics. Tada :
Look well at this pic, because it will be the last one of this post as an elegant young lady !! ha ha ha !!!
Too cold, too much rain, i bring with me my curling iron, spent long time to curl my hair each day for NOTHING !!!! Each time i quite my motel room it was the Indian Monsoon outside.
I bop 4 days in the mud !!!
I think it's one of the most rainy place in France.
The amazing "Playboys" my fav european band, during the rehearsal
With my buddy Alain that i didn't see since the Saint Sylvester
It was great to see him again.
With Isa, she rides a sporster too.
We will ride soon together.
Juju who's spinning records
The Starliters from Italia
(you know that i'm a dork who loves western swing :)
We bop during 4 nights like crazy cats.
I had the good suprise to travel with François till Allasac. I love so much this guy. He is so funny. You can never annoying when he is near you. François is so smart and funny. I can't stop laughing to his jokes during all the trip. When i quite Allasac monday, i call my BF from the car, i can't talk as i laught to loud. I supposed to be sad to quite him for 3 weeks till the Rockabilly rave, but i can't stay serious with François talking jokes on my side in the car.
I was very surprised to see my old buddy Jean-Claude. I've see my first 50s festivals with him when i was a young chick. so many good rememberance and fun stories to tell.
Olivier has a little flair of Sean Penn, isn't it ?
Cécile came for the last night. Yupi !!!
Tryin to take a pic of the team was difficult ha ha ha they all turn when i push the button ha ha ha !!
I fail almost all my pics as there is always someone to push me or to put the hand on my camera while i try to shoot pics. Kid jokes was the rule during 4 days.
Now we must wait 21 days till the Rockabilly Rave in England.
I'm so impatient to meet you all again.
It was so good to laught during 4 days !!!
Thank you life to have the best entourage.
