    RISING SUN ROCK FESTIVAL 2008 in EZO

    Well, it was even more awesome than I had expected, and easily worth the money, and the 20 hours I had to spend on trains.

    * Artists seen:
    Friday, Aug 15:
    DOPING PANDA - don't normally listen to these guys, but they were a nice warmup for things to come, I guess.
    The Pillows - very awesome, especially the 2nd half.
    東京事変 - dangerously crowded, and a bit too short (only about 35 minutes), but too damn awesome. Easily the best moment of RSR. Been waiting for years for a chance to see Ringo live. <3
    ミドリ - also super awesome, though I was a bit too tired to tackle the crowd, so saw it from a bit of a distance.

    Saturday, Aug 16:
    MONGOL800 - nothing special, kinda boring.
    勝手にしやがれ - Jazz/ska type of music always works great live, and this is easily my favorite jazz band. Too cool. Probably my favorite performance at RSR, after 東京事変 and 椎名林檎, of course. :P
    元ちとせ - quite nice, and very, very relaxing. The whole audience was sitting on the ground, and I saw quite a few people sleeping. …
