in which i discover the woes of being short and asian
We were this close to the stage but, I don’t know, Italians are kind of crabby about their space. It’s weird. I don’t want to generalize and call them rude, but they really were kind of bitchy about it. It was not cool. I really was about to pull the race card, but then that would also be uncool, so we just looked for a different place.
I know it looks congested, but there was plenty of space around us and people were setting mats down as flat as they could and would fully recline. We were perfectly fine with standing around for the remaining four-hour wait, but they would make us leave because they “couldn’t see the stage.”
I talk about the race card, because as you can see, there are people who are standing around here, but we were the only ones they would ask to leave. Seriously. I’m 5″ tall, give me a break. ANYWAY.
There was a bunch of dance tunes playing on a mobile while people were setting up/getting everything ready. Caribou opened for Radiohead. Here’s the set list. I will post a different entry on the concert itself, since I’m absolutely swamped currently. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
