Metal 2 The Masses FINAL!

SOMEHOW – despite my intro music hitting at 20:15 at York Hall in Bethnal Green – I made it to Reading in time to play Gay Bum’s guest slot at the final of Bloodstock’s Metal 2 The Masses.

I didn’t have time to get changed.

I didn’t even have time to catch my breath.

I did, however, have time to drink a bottle of wine on the train, which I only caught by sprinting across London in full lucha attire (apart from the mask. I didn’t want to get shot on the tube for being alternative.)

And thank the Gods that I made it, because it was an awesome night! The bands were on form – crushing it – and there were so many familiar faces that I hardly had a chance to stop hugging people the entire time I was there.

As a warm-up for Leefest at the end of July, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
