Tammerfest this year was AMAZING!
I managed to get in to Telakka on Friday 16th, no one asked to see my ID! Those bands at Telakka.. Well, it all felt so surreal.
First there was playing The VooDoo Nights. I was so happy to finally see them live again. When JWRA split up in 2007, I was so looking forward to start going to the gigs of Arde's (JWRA's guitarist) new band. But, they've had mostly gigs with age limit so far, so I've had a chance to see them only once before. But well, that's about to chance soon, after my birthday I can go everywhere!
It was so nice to see Arde again and talk with him after the gigs! He's such a gorgeous guy and I love his style too!
Then, Jann Wilde played with his band The Neon Comets. I didn't take many pictures, because I had to save battery for the night's special guest band, and also because for the most of the time some of the band members were hiding behind the bar which was in front of the stage and I couldn't see them from where I was sitting. It doesn't matter, I already have so many pictures of that band.. They played a brand new song, 'Jello', which I loved!
And the so long waited special guest band. Jann Wilde & The Rose Avenue!! That band split up three years ago.. I didn't think I'd ever see them again but well, never say never! Jann,Tender, Arde and Rene. Just absolutely amazing and nostalgic to see them playing together again! I have only 3 pictures from that gig, because the gig was so special, I wanted to have videos of all the songs they played!
On Saturday 17th we went to Viikinsaari. It was fun too! There played many bands, but Siz & I just sat somewhere drinking and talking for the most of the time. We went to the front of the stage watching few bands though.
At first, Skin Alive. It's Arde's another band, where he only plays guitar and sings backing vocals. Also Pappa from The VooDoo Nights plays guitar in this band. I've never seen Skin Alive live before, only listened to some songs on myspace, so it was nice to see them.
And then, Jann Wilde & The Neon Comets again. The set was exactly the same as it was yesterday, but it didn't matter, somehow it sounded different anyway.
After the Viikinsaari gigs Siz, Nea and I were sitting in the harbour and having fun.
Jann Wilde also wrote about the Tammerfest gigs in his blog, so check it out!
I'm just sooo happy now. Somehow it feels like it's 2007 again! ♥
I'm sure many of you are waiting to see the make up looks and tutorials, and I promise I'll do them soon.. I already have pictures for one make up tutorial (the make up I was wearing during the Tammerfest, you can see it on the pictures), all I need is time for posting them and writing the tutorial, and more is coming too so stay tuned! x
