Miami International Noise Conference 2011 - EPIC BLOG POST

This is the first thing I saw when we got to Rat's place in South Beach. I knew we were in DEEP.

But before we dive in, I have to share a tip with you. If you are coming from Sarasota (or anywhere from west coast Florida), and heading to Miami, you GOTTA go the Tamiami Trail, which is US 41 / FL 90. Its the best way to go by vehicle. So epically superior to the boring old Alligator Alley I-75, trust me. You do see alligators and cranes and such on 75, but not like on the Tamiami. Plus, there are great rest areas where you can literally walk up to the damn gators. (yes, there is a fence between us, I'm no wildabeast)

Yeah, I know that was a lot for you to sit through, but now you can say you know me just THAT much better. It is all definitely inspiring to me.

That's just about everything I got. You can snoop the whole set over at my flickr.

I wish I could capture more! I never get to film Leslie Keffer or Sharkiface's sets because I am always setting up while they are performing, and there are tons more that I just couldn't get, whether I was too far away, or taking a break from watching bands. The real problem with INC is that it really is a challenge, and maybe more like virtually impossible to see every single band, whether you want to or not.

I'm not going to write up a proper review of this year's fest. You can read Noisebloid's blog post here, and watch more INC videos here, and here! Also, check out MP's videos at his youtube. He has tons of sick videos in general!

Unicorn Hard-on
Keff caught this awesome photo of me performing
