Just a review for you all....WHAT A WEEKEND!

Il start with Friday, and when i arrived, well, thought I had arrived, I couldnt find Warner and Ginge, because Id got off at the wrong train station.

Eventually i got there, and on the way to the hotel, bumped into Coops, Burgess and Chenford.

We all went up to the room, drank plenty, had laughs, and then went out to town, met up with Twin Atlantic, Batten and Rob. We headed onto the bus for a bit, got ourselves some free booze and had a chat with Rou, before we got kicked off the bus and we all headed to some pub/club.

We stayed there till closing time then headed back to the hotel for a few, crashed about 5 and no one moved until lunchtime.

On gig day, Coops and Burgess went to explore the town while me, warner and ginge sat in the room and got MWI. Warner managed to throw up and make an absolute mess of the bathroom.

Rick off the forum came up and hate a beer with us before going to see the support acts and we sat around drinking some more before we headed over to the gig, and I met a rather drunk Clive at the gig, but unfortunatly I idnt get a chance to talk much with him.

The crowd was absolutly immense....a great pit....they seemed unable to cope with surfers tho! Shikari put on an ace set, I think...THINK they almost played something new and then stopped haha, but it was an awesome set from start to end.

After the gig we headed back for a shower then everyone (Me, Warner, Ginge, Coops, Sam, Burgess, Louise, Jodi, and Tom) headed out in search of precious alcohol. All we ended up with was a steaming Rob Rolfe who got us to chip in for "loads" of alcohol, only for us to end up with about half a pint.

After the aftershow, myself, Warner, Ginge, Rob, Rory, Sam and these 2 random dutch people we met went back to a flat with the oddest smoking rules Iv ever seen- fags outside but you can smoke weed inside. Bizarre.
Anyway, we sat at a table, got slagged by Dutch people and got wasted until it was breakfast, then went home for some kip.

Today was spent in McDonalds and drinking beer, before we had to come back to reality and board the plane home......a few hundred quid poorer but what an amazing weekend thanks to the forumers and the band.

Itl be good to see loadsa folk once the UK minitour gets rolling....

for me it was an awsome night. first getting my cap signed by Enter Shikari and Pdex. then we ate something at the burger king. then i met you guys at your hotel, what a messy room Neutral when we got in @ the melkweg Haribo macht kinder froh had already begun. then i watched twin atlantic who quite suprised me in a good way. and then... Enter Shikari. it was fucking awsome to finally see them again:) but why were there barriers? it ruined all the stagediving:(

I only went to the gig at the Effenaar, but that was an immense gig! Such a great set.

I was standing behind the soundpanel (couldnt pit because my leg is in a cast) and then all of the sudden chris stood in front of me, while watching twin atlantic. And really nobody noticed at the place, except when he walked away and (I guess it was clive?) talked to him.

Such an amazing gig, almost got a water bottle by rou in the face but it hit some steel thingy in front of me, if it wasn't there i would've been less lucky.

haha I forgot you wiped with a towel!i dont reckon the keg would go down well either. I quite liked having a free night before the gig,and having the whole day to chill. I think having a hotel 2 seconds from the venue helped too.

I can't see where the videos are on Warner's Facebook.
I was not really drunk. I'd only had 8 Heineken and a double Jagermeister. Dehydrated definately, happy yes, but not drunk. I had lost some of my inhibitions, saying aloud what I was thinking, which sometimes can get you into trouble.

Enjoyed the Amsterdam gig but not as much as last year as the security were very strict this year so only 3 brave stage divers. Effenaar was I think better, except that some twat ran into me with such force at the end that I fell over with the contents of one of my pockets spreading across the floor, and me falling on the knee that I had fallen on just outside Amsterdam train station, and later my hotel. It is badly grazed and bruised.

I also fell on th ice at Woerden, banging the same knee.

It was good to meet Dutch and Belgian, as well as British ES fans. I enjoyed the signing, and thanks to Chippeij for keeping me company there.

I also enjoyed seeing Heavy Lord and Baroness at Watt in Rotterdam on Monday, and visiting the Rietveld-Schroderhuis at Utrecht on Wednesday, as well as seeing the amazing architecture of Utrecht University.

And yes it was me talking to Chris. There was also a Belgian girl who noticed him there and whose male friend took a photo of her with Chris.
