Tag - I'm it!

I've been tagged by the lovely Trish from Trish Hunter Finds.

Essentially, I have to:

*Go to the 4th folder in your computer where you store your pictures
*Pick the 4th picture in that folder
*Explain the picture
*Tag 4 people to do the same.

This is the image I found:

As it so happens, this folder is the backup of my phone photos. This shot was taken at The Big Day Out in January 2008 where Mr Verve and myself were taking in the sights and sounds of Adelaide boys, The Hilltop Hoods.

I remember it was a stinking hot day and there was little or no shade available at the Flemington Racecourse where I believe they are hosting the same event this year. Even the hoses they were using on the crowd didn't offer much relief (to say nothing of messing up my hair!). If I could use a single term to describe the environment it would be 'dust bowl'.

However, the music was fantastic with headliners, Rage Against The Machine, delivering an amazing performance that I will never forget. It was scary (I barely escaped the mosh pit without injury) and thrilling and made me feel great to be alive. You just had to be there.

So there you go. You just learned something about me: I have very eclectic musical tastes!

Now I tag the following:

*Grant from Ink and Leather
*Esme & The Lane Way (who always has the most wonderful photos in her blog)
*Miss Red, from Peeptoes & Pedicures
*Porcelain Blonde

Hello gorgeous! Thanks for tagging me :)
I heard that 'dust bowl' is a very accurate description for the BDO last year - Mr P&P was in a bit of a state when he arrived home from it last year :)

It was a fun day, but I did have to wash my hair three times to get all the dust out of it!

Oh my gosh, you had to wash your hair 3 times?! I'm sure the live experience was well worth the mess though - how brave were you to join the mosh pit?!

I like Rage Against The Machine too so I'm with you on the eclectic music taste :)

Thank you for thinking of me with this tag darling. I'm shocking with tags - in fact I've already been tagged with this one! I will endeavour to lift my game :)
