For Nich and I, SOUNDS OF THE SUBURBS 2016 got off to a rocky start. First off, a few drinks the night before turned into a 4am benda with a very dusty wake up. Breakfast wasn't an option as we were already running late, so a cheeky dash to Oporto on the way to Cootsy's pad was a must.
It's just after 1230pm and in classic Cootsy style, he isn't ready so we all decide to punch a few beers. A few minutes later we hear heavy rain pounding the car park outside and realise we aren't getting Fish Tacos anytime soon.
We arrive at the festival around 130pm, one of the outdoor stages has been washed out forcing a reshuffle and a bit of confusion for organisers, bands and punters alike.
After smashing a couple of those elusive Fish Tacos and some BUDs while watching THE CLOACAS, we're ready to get amongst it.
Outside, the rain is back and plenty of people just don't care. Already soaked from the first down pour or drunk enough not to care about this one, they party on. BFMP Crew included. From this point on things become a bit blurry and time ceased to exist.
We did get the chance to chat with Sam from WILD HONEY before they took to the stage, fall in love with ALEX LAHEY, get blown away by GUANTANAMO BAYWATCH and nailed in the DZ DEATHRAYS mosh. All round top day really.
