Gigs I have been to recently thread

Recommended Posts

Alice in Chains did the usual trick of bypassing the North East. It's like a blackhole up here for gigs now.

 

Lurtz who is in the Damned at the moment? They are on up here and I fancied it but had no idea how much of the band it left right now.

Going to see Sigur Rós on Sat. Can't fuckin wait these guys are amazing live.

 

Have you seen them before mate?

 

When they finish with Untitled 12 it's the closest thing to a superior race taking off to go back to their planet that you will ever see.

Depeche Mode was decent. Could have done with a few older songs but I enjoyed it overall.

 

Leeds Arena is pretty decent. I like its layout & the sound was great.

Off to see China Drum tonight. Last seen somewhere around 1996 when I was but a young pup. 

 

Mainly going as my mates band Supercharger are supporting them (I've mentioned them on the metal thread recently) and because a few mates are going.

 

Should be a decent night and some good old fashioned rock and roll. There is a 3rd band on as well who I've never heard of before.

Was a brilliant night. Got drunk, punched some prick who nearly knocked my mates bird over and saw a great set from my mates band and China Drum.

 

I'm a bit more pissed than I probably should be though.

Fuck me Mark E Smith looks about 75 these days. He was sat down hiding behind a speaker for half of it. It was The Fall. Always different always the same.

King Khan was fucking boss. I had only seen him with BBQ Show before which is great but The Shrines are awesome. Garage rock with a load of soul thrown in. Rocket From The Crypt fans would love it. Definite go see.

I actually saw them in 2000 in the temple bar music centre in dublin but I was so pished so didn't rem too much about it other than plenty of strobe lights. Wasn't really into them at the time to be honest.

 

The gig in the o2 here 2 weeks ago was just amazing. I don't have the vocabulary to describe it. I'd encourage any music lover to try see them live at some stage. Blew me away.

Last night I saw Ty Segall then White Fence for a bit of quality garage rock.

 

I then saw Fat White Family in a tiny ex-squat venue. They are gonna be huge. Fantastic band.

Superb that last night. Only caught half of the Zutons because the queue was huge. Easy to get a drink but the prices were a joke. 8 quid for a can. Went with my missus and her two mates and one of them bought a bottle of crap rose wine, 31 quid. 

 

Zutons were ace as usual but Chic were off the scale. Absolutely superb. I had a cone on my head at one point. The place was bouncing and surprisingly, very few bellends about.
