- Gigs 2019-2020
Holy **** storm! Just got back from Tropical **** Storm! Man, that was heavy. If you like mental guitarists I recommend you find yourself a tour date and stand at the front. Mind blowing.Posted 2 months ago
Got called a **** by a spoiled little girl who tried to push me out the way to get a photo, said I elbowed her when in fact I just kept dancing and ignored her. Kids these days eh.
Have to admit Dez there are some proper special people at gigs these days, if you don’t like a bit of a squash or a sweaty body then don’t queue at 6pm and insist on standing right at the front for anything other than a mick bubble concert or you’re going to be a little bit moody.Posted 2 months agoCougarSubscriber
Adam Ant in just over a week. Don’t judge me, it’s my girlfriend’s bucket list, I nodded and smiled.
December, Gun and FM on the 20th with, eh, Dan Reed Network. FM playing the Tough It Out album in full which is the only material of theirs I know, and Gun is well Gun and just one of the most underrated bands ever, I adore them. Then the Thunder Christmas party the day after.
Then, Terrorvision in February, their one-off gig until they announced a second date. Party over here.Posted 2 months ago
@wrightyson…& Jate…oh I’m ready alright from the YT footage I’ve seen I know it’s going to be spot on ..but thanks for the heads-up..Posted 2 months ago
I’m surprised though that they don’t seem to have ” Warning Sign ” in the set list ..both mine & my boy’s favourite track from ” Future Dust ” …
Not long now..johnx2Member
Metronomy last night. Actually a really good live band, loads of energy and dancing with various highlights including a synth off – rest of band exited, the synth players either side of the stage going increasingly crazy as the banks of keyboards slowly closed on each other to meet centre stage for a . Better than it probably looks written down.
Snarky Puppy on Friday.Posted 2 months agoMister PMember
Life, on Friday night at the Craufurd Arms.
Then Fat white family at Earth in Hackney on the 3rd Dec.
I’d rather go to the Craufurd Arms than Earth. I went to see Submotion Orchestra there and it was a bit pants. The band were good (from what I could hear) but the venue was a bit crap and I think I was one of the few there to actually see the band. Everyone else was chatting away through the entire show. Shame as when I saw them at MK11 they were superb.Posted 2 months agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Just back from the 50th Anniversary Hawkwind gig at the Albert Halls in Manchester.
Must of seen the wheezing old space gypsies a couple of dozen times, that was one of the best.
And on theramin……Tim Blake! Never thought I’d see him again.
Dave Brock was looking a bit old, turns out he’s 78 🙂
Absolutely top night.Posted 2 months agotheotherjonvSubscriber
well, the time has rolled around again, I’ve seen this lot at least once every year since 1987 (apart from the years when they were in different incarnation) and I guess that with double years that must add up to nearly 30 times.
And the songs STILL all sound the same.
Tonight, in a teeny sweaty middle aged Dad crowded Boileroom in Guildford, I give you……
The semi-legendary Wedding Present.

Fontaines DC last night in Birmingham. Bloody brilliant, intense, punchy, invigorating. Loved it.
As they were in Sheffield on Saturday night.Posted 1 month ago
Not got anything lined up for a bit now. Was going to see murder capital in feb but clashes with a 50th.
Jacob collier next year some time with the kidz. I haven’t decided if I like him or not yet.jimfrandiscoMember
This is a rare treat…a thread I can comment on.Posted 1 month ago
Actually been to a few gigs after a long hiatus – SunnO))) and Lightning bolt in the last few weeks, with The Cuban Brothers and DJ Yoda separating them and giving me time in between for hearing to recover.
It’s just the standing up for 2 hours that I can’t do anymore…NorthwindSubscriber
Frank Turner show in Dunfermline on Friday was weird. Emily Barker support, which was nice, then Frank supported himself, doing a solo acoustic set of carefully handpicked tracks off the new album which avoided the two best ones and included the worst song he’s ever done. Then an unplugged set from the full band where they all just played their normal instruments except sitting down. Some interesting rearrangements but mostly a sort of unhappy halfway house between his normal solo shows and a proper sleeping souls gig… Still really enjoyed it, never seen anything close to a bad show from Frank, and it was pretty interesting but, mmm.
“A”, the ungooglable band, ended up playing the little venue at the Garage on sunday, turnout seemed pretty awful and most of the audience was pushing 40 but it was a good set, good performance despite JP’s voice being knackered- and didn’t have the weird “we’re not quite sure why we’re here” feel of the last time I saw them on tour. Still a lot of love for these guys out there it turns out. Totally wrecked my neck.
(and Mark Chapman is still one of the best damn forgotten guitarists in the country, shame this set didn’t really let him cut loose.)Posted 1 month agorichardkennerleySubscriber
Shed 7 in Blackburn last night. I know this will probably divide opinion because people will think they’re naff, but they never fail to put on a good show! Average age of the crowd will be forty something, but there was a couple of people 70+ and plenty of kids, including an 11 year old at his first gig. There’s something joyous about seeing all those people (and joining in) belting out chasing rainbows as loud as they can. Great stuff.
Got tickets to a Labour fundraising gig on Saturday. The Blinders headline with 8 bands in support. Should be… sweaty. Going on the annual scum run during the day though, starting at 11:30, maybe won’t make it to the end!!Posted 1 month ago
@northwind sounds very similar to the show I saw in July. His Mrs was support which was incredibly dull if I’m honest and then frank just sang a set acoustic with just him and his guitar. There were some great sing along moments but it was just a bit weird. Seen him probably half a dozen times and that show just seemed odd.Posted 1 month agolovewookieSubscriber
Queensryche on saturday at the Garage.
Dog’s D’Amour on the 22nd Dec at Audio.
ended up not going tosome of the gigs I’d hoped. went to NMA in Edinburgh, good gig that, despite not really being a fan. really really crammed though. couldn’t be bothered with Nitzer Ebb or Die Krupps, though hear they were good gigs too. :-/Posted 1 month ago
