Gave My Love To A Shooting Star

Bag Raiders headlined Oktoberfest at my uni, and while the rest of the lineup was pretty good, they made it worth the ridiculous $50 cab fee home. In my defence, I really didn't know trains stopped so early on weeknights. I hate you, Cityrail.


So now I know why Oktoberfest here is so infamous. The floor inside was literally covered by alcohol and debris ( I watched in horror as some drunk girl danced/mopped the floor in socks), inebriated, high or stoned people left right and centre, a giant inflatable slide, drink stalls every 5m and about 4 music acts going simultaneously. Saw countless boys in lederhosen and beer maids groping, rolling in the bushes and almost-but-not having sex. 

Strangely enough, the combination of it all made the vibe fantastic; guess you can't go wrong with a couple thousand of people all rocking up to just have fun. Plus you know it was good when you wake up the next morning with inexplicable pains in your right ribs and collarbone. Still dragged myself to uni today, weak limbs and all so I'm proud.

Speaking of proud, I managed to salvage these non-blurry photos from my point and shoot, they turned out ok! And speaking of cameras, I have a (kind of) new baby to show you all...

Leaving you with the song that made everyone go a bit crazy, which they also conveniently played last.
