Iceland Airwaves and the Golden Circle

I left the small town of Skagastrond and headed down to Reykjavik for the Iceland Airwaves music festival on Wednesday the 15th of October. Instead of spending almost sixty bucks on a bus ticket, I just got a ride with the mayor of Skagastrond since he was heading down there for a meeting concerning the financial crisis.

The festival was good stuff... Discovered some new bands, boogied down, and things of that nature. On Saturday, a friend of mine drove a few of us around the Golden Circle, where you can see the famous Geysir, the waterfall Gullfoss, and Thingvellir, where the two tectonic plates of Iceland come together (the only place such an occurrence can be seen above the ocean floor) . Here be some pics of that nastiness.

A few good bands at Airwaves:
The Handsome FursRokkurro
Yelle and FM Belfast were also pretty dope, if you're interested.

Geysir doing its thing!
