What could truly top Saturday's Riot Fest experience?
How about seeing The Cure live on stage to close out Riot Fest?!
Southside began her day with some rowdy Team Spirit (http://www.goteamspirit.com) at the Radical Stage with its loud, ass kicking guitar punk rock, blogspot readers, to which many fans enjoyed while slamming dancing/moshing at the center. When listening to this particular band, it's best to have the volume on the loudest setting as possible. This reviewer liked the energy that automatically generated a head-banging response and frantic excitement amidst Team's intense sound and vocal angst.

SouthSide will be right back ...she needs to see a medic about this bee sting on her arm!
Nothing to worry about, blogspot readers. At least, she's not allergic to bee stings! The medic put a salt solution on the swelling and told her it's going to be painful for a couple of days...

"That's The Cure!" ~ SouthSide to the man
"Oh ...never heard of them..."
Ah, The Cure (http://www.thecure.com). What could SouthSide honestly say about a band that she has been such a fan for ever since hearing songs like "A Forest" and "Let's Go To Bed" before totally falling in love with "Just Like Heaven", "Lovecats", "Lullaby" and many, many more, blogspot readers? Except that she was thrilled to the bone to be basking in the field of thousands upon thousands more reminiscing as well as sing to the songs that could almost be the soundtrack of her teen and early adult years of life. Hearing front man Robert Smith sing her favorites live again was ...words could not describe how she felt. Yet all around her, fans were also singing along to "Fascination Street" and "Friday I'm In Love". This reviewer absolutely melted in the mud upon hearing "Love Song". It was definitely an awesome performance to end her Riot Fest experience being amongst other Cure fans and re-living precious memories, blogspot readers.
What a weekend, blogspot readers! It was worth the soreness felt on Monday morning...
