random update

despite there still being snow outside, i can feel spring coming. yey! however, it is making me really sleepy, so i keep falling asleep on the couch every single evening, which makes me forget to update. d'oh.

finally booked a hotel for the trip to paris to see pj harvey in may (hôtel beausejour montmartre) - while it's only 2 stars, which means it'll probably be a bit worn down with tiny bathroom and whatnot, the location is great, the wi-fi free, and there's apparently a lovely garden to have the breakfast in, and i love the idea of that. plus, i stayed in montmartre last time and loved being so close to the sacré-coeur, and the metro is around the corner (as is moulin rouge, haha), so.. should be fine.

can't wait - nothing like a great may trip to look forward to! hopefully the weather will be gorgeous like last time. and either way, pj harvey, wee!

in other WEE! news - nine inch nails confirmed that they'll be coming to a swedish festival this summer, which i now have to go to, and the best part is that depeche mode is headlining the same festival so it should be fantastic! am slightly worried about concert-fatigue this summer, but whatever - it'll be summer, and it's only a few things per month. this is what we have lined up:

- the sisters of mercy next week!
- fever ray (karin dreijer) in two weeks!
- lowood release party (two young swedish girls we saw opening for moto boy a year ago who are really promising)

- a camp (nina persson)
- miss li
- titiyo
- maaaaybe ben kweller
- olle ljungström

- the yeah yeah yeahs
- pj harvey in stockholm, oslo and paris

- bruce springsteen
- where the actions is-festival feat nick cave, neil young, etc.
- morrissey

- the arvika synth-festival feat depeche mode, nine inch nails, etc
- the hultsfred-festival feat the killers, regina spektor, etc

- madonna in august (pos. twice)
- coldplay

live moosic = the bomb! nin!!!! dm!!! etc. wee!

yayy for TRENTY GOODNESS! :)

I saw him twice earlier this year and it never gets old *sighs*

yes, definitely yeyyyy for trent! i seriously didn't think i'd get to see him since they first announced he was only going to do the danish roskilde festival, and there's no way i'd go to that even for trent.. but then to have him come to sweden and to co-headline a festival with depeche mode? score!

oh, and i loved reading about your recent nin-concerts - made me all "weeee!" :D

Have you seen Cave before?

NO! :D :D

which means i get to see both pj and nick cave, FINALLY, this year. the festivals i'm going to attend are booking a lot of fun stuff! i've never done a festival before so going to three festivals in 2 months is going to be.. special. check out the line-ups:

- where the action is (should add many more acts before it's time)
- hultsfred (still adding to the lineup)
- arvika-festival (nin!!! dm!! etc)

got anything fun lined up? (you always do :))
