Slam Dunk 2020/Pop Punk Art πŸ˜

November 2019, I excitedly bought my tickets for Slam Dunk 2020, after seeing my favourite band, The Story So Far on the line up. Excitedly waiting till May 2020.

Of course, as the pandemic came around, the festival was postponed to September 2020, but that was fine. They released the line up and thankfully I could still catch Seeing my favourite band, to look forward too.

Then it was cancelled altogether until 2021. Of course for safety, that was going to be inevitable. A big popular festival, was of course going to get cancelled. I hope I’ll be able to attend 2021, but as of right now I’m not sure I’ll be able to, with personal goals etc, I’m setting myself.

That being said, this was my birthday present to myself. So of course I was a little bit gutted. However its then, I stumbled across Graeme Mills pop punk art. I loved his work, so I ordered my own artwork. As a present for myself, to commemorate this weird time. I only requested it’ll include my favourite lyric from my favourite song, High Regard.

Artwork by Graeme Mills.

I received it today, digitally. And I am so in love with it. I’ve ordered it as a print to frame it for my desk. It’s definitely brightened my day up. It’s original, unique and a great gift idea.

I absolutely enjoyed supporting creative businesses. Definitely worth checking out! He can work with anything though most popular with pop punk. You can view his Instagram here. Just message him to talk about an order.

The Story So Far Live πŸŽΆ

Last night, (Friday 5th October 2018) I had the ultimate pleasure of seeing The Story So Far Live. If you follow my social media, then you’ll know they’re my favourite band. Especially on Facebook, where I have a top fan badge.

I made my family by these tickets for my birthday as soon as I saw they was playing in Bristol. I had to get tickets. My boyfriend came with me. They played at SWX in Bristol.

They’re support acts; All Get Out and Citizen are two bands I have not heard of, but I enjoyed their music and have a new fan now. I didn’t get any videos or photos of these acts. This was so I could save my phone battery, to film and photograph The Story So Far. But the supporting artists played great, and I’d recommend checking them out on YouTube.

As for the main set, they’re so amazing live. Like more than 12 hours later, I’m still in happy euphoria. I thankfully managed to get great videos, even though I was stood on the sidelines by a giant speaker. And with a self confessed crush on guitarist, Will Levy, hidden behind the speaker a bit. So that got me down, but the quality of the videos I got makes up for it. I’ll include one here and a photo. They played a mix of songs, from old classics, to a few off their new album, Proper Dose.

I’ve been a fan since I discovered them in 2010. Their music means so much to me, because it has helped me cope and pull through the worst years of my life, while I was in a past abusive relationship.

To top it off, and made my day, after the gig, I met lead singer, Parker Cannon and Guitarist, Will Levy. Who were kind enough to take a photo with me. (Of course, it didn’t happen if there’s no photos πŸ˜‹) It was the best way to celebrate my birthday early, and they wished me happy birthday. Although I am embarrassed with how shy and awkward I got. Because really do just want to thank them for the music they work hard to put out.


Best night ever, now to just listen to their vinyls, on repeat and on my Spotify. And also to look forward to the next tour. One of my future wishes is to see them live over in the US too. Hopefully one day.
