Waiting For The Worms

My plan for Friday was to meet my friend Oli for dinner, but when I found out about Crystal Palace Garden Party I managed to persuade him that instead of a meal in central London, he wanted to travel out to the badlands to see a Pink Floyd tribute band.

Crystal Palace Park is quite big and it took us a while to find the venue. We purchased some drinks vouchers and visited the beer tent, which was dispensing real ale and a good selection of ciders. This was just fine; if I'm going to pay £4 a pint, it might as well be a pint of something tasty.

Then, as it grew dark and the strains of Shine On You Crazy Diamond pt 1 washed over us, we lay back on the grass and attempted to spot the International Space Station with the help of Oli's smartphone.

I think I've seen Just Floyd before; they must be my local Pink Floyd tribute band. They were also a grammatically-correct tribute band, singing "Teacher, leave those kids alone".

The band ran out of time at 10:15, finishing with Run Like Hell - which we did, for the exit, beating the rush only to get lost and wind up at Gipsy Hill, one stop further down the line than Crystal Palace. I was still home twenty minutes later. Now that's my kind of festival.

Sounds lovely! Eating, drinking and being merry, is there anything nicer?

They were also a grammatically-correct tribute band, singing "Teacher, leave those kids alone".

What do grammatically-incorrect Pink Floyd tribute bands sing?
'Them kids', as in the original :)
Ah, yes! Of course. :)
At the right time of day ISS is hard to miss if the sky's clear...

...but why correct that grammar???
One day I'll write a post about songs with ungrammatical bits that annoy me (the female of the species is more deadlier than the male). ABITW is not one of them, though.
