  • Gigs 2019-2020
  • Maybe a bit late to be starting in Feb, but whatevs bro…

    Let’s all sneer at one another’s live music choices and whinge about people that **** insist on **** videoing the gig on their **** phones. 😀

    Who’ve you seen so far and what’s planned for the year ahead?


    Following the trend- off to see Idles in Norwich at the end of March and then Sleaford Mods for a second time in April..


    Sumac in Bristol in March.

    Arctangent festival in August. Super excited about that as the lineup is pretty tidy.

    Will be seeing Idles at Green Man later in the Summer – looking forward to that.

    And saw Sleaford Mods year before last at the same festival. They’re cracking live. Really enjoyed their set.

    Sumac in Bristol in March.

    Ah I see they’re playing The Exchange. I’m tempted. It’s such a cracking venue. 2 of the best gigs I’ve been to have been there. Nice beer too!

    John Grant last week, Glasgow

    Pictish Trail next week – Glasgow

    Smoove & Turrell sometime soon – can’t remember the date! Edinburgh

    Quite fancy Sleaford Mods and also on the lookout for Black Futures but not coming to Scotland any time soon..

    John Grant last week, Glasgow

    Saw him late last year in Bath – so technically not allowed on the thread but I assume same tour. Not really a fan, but I really enjoyed it. He’s a good bloke.

    Mister P

    Submotion Orchestra next Friday (15th Feb) in Hackney then Nils Frahm in Manchester on Sunday 17th Feb. March is Gentleman’s Dub Club in Northampton on Friday 30th and April is Unkle in London on Friday 19th.

    Hoping to catch Wildhearts at Norwich, but not booked yet
    Planning on doing the Friday at Download

    Slim pickings for me so far this year so far.

    Saw Rival Sons earlier this week who were great.

    Got Neneh Cherry (don’t judge!) next week.


    Bob Mould next month.

    Up yis.


    Frank Turner last month which was brilliant, especially having a little mosh with him when he piled into the crowd. Hotpots booked again for March but that’s literally just for a good old laugh. Props ynot festival and that’s it at the mo…

    Premier Icon jam bo

    oh, also got tix for the macc lads in december 😀

    Premier Icon theotherjonv

    Sleaford Mods in april too. Apposite as well, as I’m now pretty much confirmed as of today that in 3 months I too shall be ‘jobseeker’


    CANCER BATS tonight. I’m not shouting but I probably will be tomorrow.

    Saw Estrons last week at Cambridge Portland Arms

    I was away, how was it?

    Premier Icon Stoner

    whinge about people that **** insist on **** videoing the gig on their **** phones.

    how else would you know what you’re missing? :p

    Anyway, saw these guys earlier this week. Fantastic sound. Not exactly ground breaking, but theyre French and good fun.

    Premier Icon Northwind

    Craig Finn from the Hold Steady solo last night, supporting Brian Fallon. Tonight, And You Will Know Them By The Trail Of Dead in Glasgow, yaaaas

    Coming up- the Wildhearts, Camden Rocks, 3 nights of the Hold Steady in London, Bob Mould (an experiment)


    Flying Lotus and Marc Rebillet so far and have got a Steve Reich thing, James Blake and Actress coming up, also Machina Bristronica which is a kind of a synthy gig thing.

    Premier Icon YoKaiser

    Blue Rose Code in St Lukes in Glasgow soonish I think, and Teenage Fanclub at the Kelvingrove bandstand in the summer.

    Premier Icon beej

    King King tonight at KoKo in Camden. Blues rock.

    Premier Icon gallowayboy

    Nothing seen so far this year and nothing planned as yet. Got excited when GallowayMs stated Stereolab were playing at the local club…..checked it out and it was Stereo MCs…ah well.


    Nowt so far ..but I’m really really p—ed off that I’m not going to make it to the Thinktank in Newcastle tomorrow night to see the Virginmarys ..


    Sadly, due to expense incurred getting my computer fixed, Greenman may be off the agenda again this year.
    I’ve still got King Crimson on their 50th Anniversary tour in June, and Sleeper in April in Bristol.
    The Joy Formidable and Big Thief are both playing Bristol, so I might go and see them again, I saw Big Thief at Greenman and liked them a lot, and it’s been a long time since TJF have played Bristol, so I’ll see how the money goes.
    Oh yeah, Elbow are playing Bristol later this year, so I’m looking at tickets for them as well.

    Craig Finn from the Hold Steady solo last night, supporting Brian Fallon.

    Ooooh – love The Hold Steady, and Gaslight Anthem. How was the solo show?

    The Cure in Glasgow
    Tim Minchin (also in Glasgow)

    Not been to any in ages!

    Premier Icon Rusty Spanner

    Blue Oyster Cult, Bob Mould and The Wailers.

    Last time I saw BOC they genuinely forgot where they were playing…..”Helloooo (pause, looks at setlist) Manchester!” Fantastic.

    Premier Icon dirkpitt74

    Was supposed to be seeing Ozzy Osbourne this weekend but tour postponed due to illness – get well soon Ozzy 🤘

    Off to see Jack Savoreti over Cannock Chase in July.

    Might try and catch KISS too if tickets still available.

    For me, so far, Young Fathers at Bristol Academy – were great, though very similar show to last year at Trinity so lacked a bit of freshness – and they were very bloody late coming on stage.

    And on Tuesday night, I went to see Ghetts at Thekla Bristol – I like Grime and am in a bit of a wilderness amongst my peers. 🙂 Walking back to grab a late bus home, I ended up strolling with a few young lads that had been to the gig, asked them if they enjoyed it – they did! As I crossed the road to the bus stop, one of them shouted (in the nicest possible fashion), “No offence mate, but how do you know about Ghetts?” Cheeky little shitehawks. 😆

    Upcoming, The Dead South & Du Blonde.

    Premier Icon DezB

    Last band I saw was in December – Squid. Very cool, catch em if you see a tour. They supported Duds, who were very very bouncy, I couldn’t stay til the end though.
    Joy Formidable in a couple of weeks. Seen them before and they were damn good. Musta been cos I paid £20! Twenty pounds!
    Fat White Family sometime, mate bought tix, so dunno when that is. Be the 3rd time for them. New stuff sounds good though.
    Got HEALTH at the end of March. They’re quality, not seen them live before.
    Then Vessel, then These New Puritans in April.
    Nothing booked after that. Well, apart from Jimmy Carr in 2020!

    Well, apart from Jimmy Carr in 2020!

    You’re banned from the thread DebZ. :p

    Premier Icon prawny

    I’m playing with my band supporting an American gothy hardcore band next Tuesday, quite interested to see them, not my normal cup of tea but better than some of the other hands I’ve supported in the past

    Week after Mrs P and I are off to see the Lemon Twigs in Brum, can’t wait for that.

    That’s it so far, I was planning to see Cancer Bats and A during IV week but I as stuck at a work thing in London Village for A and then I forgot to book Cancer Bats 😣

    Might go and see Ryan Roxie with a guy from work, again not my normal cup of tea but I can try and brown nose my way to the middle while I’m there 😂

    Premier Icon Stoner

    “No offence mate, but how do you know about Ghetts?”

    it’s heart-breaking watching old men fight the dying of the light.
