Till Lemoine (Guerilla Poubelle-vocals/guitar)
SPB: What is the furthest you’ve ever traveled to see a show (and who/where was it)?
Till: I guess the furthest I traveled for a show was going to Fest 9 in Florida in 2010. It was a long trip from Paris just to see some punk shows! I remember that my family teamed up to pay me the plane ticket for my birthday!
I went with 3 friends for a week and it was our first time in Florida. We went for a week before the big thing in Gainesville and we went to the most pre-Fest shows we could all over Florida, that Tampa backyard afternoon show we went, with frozen PBR in the ice cooler, huge BBQ, a skate ramp, kids playing basketball while Gateway District set, it was the real American way for us! We tried the all most crazy American food we found. Man, that Denny's mac & cheese sandwich!! I saw Toys That Kill for the first time, what a show! It was also the first time I met our brothers in Arms Aloft, they played a pre-Fest at Wayward Council, Iron Chic played too. It was so packed my feet didn't touch the ground. I saw like 80 bands in 10 days and brought back so much records and fanzines, totally worth it!
