On Saturday night at 8 PM American rock band Manchester Orchestra made their way onto the James Phillips stage at Oppikoppi 2013 Bewilderbeast. I was not sure what to expect, but my gut told me that it would be a rocking show with some really intense guitar riffs and drumbeats sounding from the two drummers beating the crap out of their drumkits on stage.
It turns out that my gut was right (yes, again). These blokes played a rocking show. The loud guitar riffs were attempting to make love to my eardrums and I was blown away by both the drumkits beating away drumbeats in unison. Manchester Orchestra were also louder than I expected.
Kudos to Hilltop Live for bringing these okes out to South Africa. Check out the photos that I took of them at Oppikoppi 2013 Bewilderbeast below:
