Heh, pretty cool, my brother went to the Blink/Vandals sideshow in Brisbane last night, weirdly enough at the same Soundwave venue, said he heard The Offspring (I'm guessing the roadies) soundcheck and stuff. I'm only going to the Ignition gig, weird it'll be the first time in like 15 years I haven't seen their "main" show in my hometown. But, hey, festival, or bar, festival, or bar? Pretty easy choice.
Sure Soundwave'll be a blast, though. A little bummed I'm missing Anthrax and Garbage and stuff.
