When you say “Meiday,” anyone who’s ever been into local music knows what you’re talking about. – Regina Belmonte (“Let Them Eat Cake” Young Star)
I got to Meiday Friday night (October 7) just when Up Dharma Down started playing. As usual I got goosebumps when they played Tadhana.
Unfortunately I missed Pedicab‘s set, good thing I saw them the night before at Ernville’s album launch!
I did, however, catch my favorite band Sandwich! Yay!

M for Meiday!!
A lot of other wonderful bands played but I had to leave early to get some sleep. The last Meiday raised a lot of money for Mei’s upcoming surgery and we all wish her well <3<3<3 We love you Mama Mei!
Here’s a short clip of the few videos I took at Meiday. It contains the following:
- Me almost falling over while hosting because I stepped on something. You will see me shouting “ANO YON?!” at the object.
- Before interviewing Ely.
- Sandwich performing Procrastinator (I sing along and screw up the words at some point – SORRY)
See you at the next Meiday! HALLOWEEN!! November 28 at KEG, The Fort!
