Le Potager du Rock 2012


Saturday was the last day of the 6th edition of the Potager du Rock festival (a pun, the potager du roi being the king's vegetable garden). Naturally, it started to rain like it has for most of May. Yours truly wasn't in the mood for standing in the rain (or am I getting old?) so didn't stay very long but enjoyed Universal Congress' reggae...

Samedi était le dernier jour de la 6è édition du Potager du Rock (jeu de mots sur le potager du roi). Comme de bien entendu, il s'est mis à pleuvoir. Votre servitrice n'était pas d'humeur à écouter sous la pluie (ou bien elle se fait vieille) et n'est pas restée très longtemps mais a apprécié le reggae de Universal Congress.

I know what you mean. These days I have no patience for inconvenience like standing out in the rain for any reason.

Michelle said...

I'm with you and Jack. Can't do the inconvenient things anymore. No patience for that!

I can't stand outside in the heat, let alone the rain. Looks like a good time before the rain.

Randy said...

Nice shots. I love being in the rain. Life is too short not to dance in the rain.

Good idea to keep all those amps under cover. When I saw the thumbnail I thought the photo was of slot machines or an airport.

du reggae avec du violon, cela devait sonner bizarrement. C'est certain qu'en vieillissant on est moins enclin a rester sous la pluie pour écouter de la musique (meme si le reggae devait réchauffer l'ambiance) ;o)

Hmmm, je me sens aussi un peu à côté...et franchement,reggae avec le rock!
Bon, je pense que je suis vieille pour cela,dans ma tête le vrai monde rock est le rock des années 70'!
*mdr ;)
( I'm curious about the band "OLD Fashion Ladies"!!!)

For a moment I thought the public was allowed to throw hortages to the musicians...

I play golf in the rain (if it isn't too bad) but there isn't a rock group in the world that would entice me to listen to them in the rain. Not even if they were the king's veggies or the queen's bees! :-)

I can dance in the rain... on my terms. I wasn't any more into standing in the rain for a concert in my 20s than I am now.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I like the pun, sorry to heat it rained. It sounds like your May and our May are common - it's been very cloudy and rainy most of the month, although Sunday, it was sunny and warm enough (26C) for ice pops!

JM said...

I wouldn't be standing in the rain either, maybe I'm also suffering -wish I could say premature... LOL!- aging problems! :-)

Rob and Mandy said...

J' imagine que la musique a rechauffe un peu l' athmosphere. J' aime bcp le nom Potager du rock!

EG CameraGirl said...

Sorry about all the rain! I hope the sun returns soon.

LONDONLULU said...

Alas, sounds like the rain is everywhere! Hope it was enjoyable anyway, and hoping for more sun soon!

Andrew said...

Show the kids what a sensible "Rock Chick" can do... use an umbrella :-)x
