Mayday Concert in Rome

Cart and I were planning to go to the Concerto del Primo Maggio held at the Piazza di San Giovanni. However when the day arrived, I was feeling quite moody. Coupled with the fact that the concert was really huge, even larger scale than the one at Circo Massimo, I wasn’t feeling it. Cart thinks that I had the bout of PMS which I denied. Men always blame women’s mood swings on this, which I think is such a diatribe.

Cart got it right though. Because a few days later, I needed a couple of these buscofen pills. Actually its a little scary at how Cart knows me so well to the point that he knows exactly what I am thinking at that point of time


We did manage to catch it live on the telley and I saw a couple of interesting acts, even if I was not familiar with most of them. One of the acts was the Tre allegri ragazzi morti. Translated, it means Three happy dead guys.

At first they reminded me of the Insane Clown Posse which at this moment has an extremely odd music video out. But the tre allegri ragazzi morti has an easy going grunge rock sound. Kind of like Smashing Pumpkins in their days of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and before.

The concert was hosted by this lady. Her name is Sabrina Impacciatore. Its probably a bad picture, but seeing the long hair and the white dress … the first thing that came to my mind was a pontianak.

But to her credit, she’s the first woman ever to host the concert. And, she is so funny! This is she in a Tomb Raider parody where she gives a tutorial for new users.

Its in Italian, but still amusing to watch anyway

As a person who spent hours playing Tomb Raider back in my pre-university days, I appreciated the poses and gestures like the flailing arms, the running and jumping which is quite on the spot in the actual game!

And then I noticed this :

These are the same guys who sang the annoying Carla Bruni song. This song is amusing because it sounds so much like they were saying, “Boleh. Boleh. Tak Boleh” which means, “Possible. Possible. Not possible” in Malay

As you can see, I’m easily amused
