As Kanrockas grows closer you will probably start hearing certain comments from people who want to seem more "trendy" or "chill" and in the worse case scenario trying to have "swagg". These are a few of the remarks you may hear close to or on the day of Kanrockas. They will come from the mouths of small minded band wagon fans who just want to gain attention for being apart of this 2nd annual musical event.
1. "The one last year was better..."
First off, there was no 2012 Kanrockas!!! The festival had to take a hiatus in 2012 in order to properly schedule and fund another festival. Secondly, if you are referring to the 2011 Kanrockas then you are crazy. Musical Festivals arent like sequels in crappy movies. They are unique experiences and each one will be different, not better or worse, just different.
2. "I only bought tickets to see *insert band name*"
This seems so ludicrous to me, why would you pay close to $150 if you wanted to see that ONE band. You should have payed to go see them in another state, and then used the reminder of you cash to pay for gas. Also, why would you only want to see one band? Whats great about Kanrockas is that it allows you to sample a whole variety of musical styles. It gives you a chance to hear a band live which ordinarily you might only get the chance to hear on the radio.
3. "Im going to get so F@#%Ked UP!!!"
Listen Im no saint! I might drink a couple beers, hit a joint, HELL might even lick a toad if opportunity presents itself but m still going to try and be at a stable enough mindset that I can enjoy the bands! This isnt Mardi Gras, have fun and party but dont be totally inebriated and belligerent that your good time ruins others experience. Nothing ruins a performance faster then when the paramedics have to show up.
4. "My favorite bands are playing at the same time!"
Hold on! Let me go call the Head Kanrockas Executive Musical Supervisor and see if he cant rearrange the bands and fix that problem for you. NOT! Sorry but thats just not going to happen. We all have to make sacrifices in life. If you really want to be a problem solver due it like my coffee and HALF-AND-HALF THAT SHIT!
5. "This is just like Woodstock!"
WHAT?!?!? Youre joking right? If anybody says this comment to you I think youre allowed to immediately strike that person down with a sharp blunt object and bury their body on the camping grounds. The government might even acquit you. Woodstock was about protesting the Vietnam war, Kanrockas is a music festival dedicated to bringing different musical genres, styles, and tastes together in order to make one giant and diverse musical experience. Kanrockas is about developing new friends, hearing new bands, and making new memories, and no Poser or KanPoser will ever understand that.
