Iceland Airwaves Day Five (11/9): Ghostigital

Nothing feels better after a long week of work than soaking in hot tub, so it was a great surprise to learn that we were spending the morning at the Blue Lagoon. It’s strange to think that even when it’s forty degrees outside, the naturally heated water at the lagoon is steaming and warm enough for people to actually sit outside in the water. But in the water, the air temperature isn’t even noticed. Although walking back and forth from the locker room was unpleasantly cold.

Since Sunday night was the last day of Airwaves, we decided to check some shows at Húrra and Gaukurinn. Of the four shows we caught last night, only one really stuck out to me. So far, most of the bands I’ve seen have been soft rock or singer-songwriters who play in small and more intimate shows. I never would have thought I’d like an electric band like Ghostigital but they were a pleasant surprise. Unlike a lot of electronic bands I’ve heard in the past, there was enough creativity in the songs to make them distinguishable from each other. The visual aspect of the show was great too with the light shows and dancing.

The week has come to an end and our time in Iceland is wrapping up. Monday will be spent putting together our final radio documentary. We have all been working hard on getting our individual pieces together and I am looking forward to seeing everything we’ve done this semester come together.
