Soundwave 2010 @ RNA Showgrounds, 20.02.2010 – Part 1

Soundwave might be rolling around again this coming weekend but a long-standing gap in my list of blog posts to complete has been the 2010 festival that was headlined by the reformed Faith No More.  After two years the details of the day are very sketchy to say the least.  Instead of anything meaningful (if that’s the right word),  finally getting around to publishing these posts will have to just be a combination of the photos from the day and the running tweets that send throughout the day and the following day.

  • Meant to be shooting Soundwave except no confirmation either way (reviewers got the ok) Gonna have to risk the walk of shame with camera bag
