Left town to attend @nordanpaunk a festival that is a family gathering of the Icelandic punk community. I say family specifically because anytime you sat alone you often found yourself with new company. I use to spend my time attending different punk shows, but the past two days were like nothing I have heard before. Granted most of it was in Icelandic, which for whatever reason makes everything sound so much better. The two words I did immediate recognize, circle pit.
Helgi is a local in my town who drove us to the festival, his performance was by far my favorite. Last night we left around 10pm for a 6 hour drive home. We played every punk CD he has, him tapping to the beat on his steering wheel, me tapping on the window. Our conversation started around all the different bands we saw then led to the challenges one might face in their life. This is him around 2am when we stopped to feel the temperature of the water.
