    saw fontaine’s dc last month,
    March the annual return of the dub pistols at the craufurd

    then pigs x7 in april at esquires bedford.

    Loving this thread. Thanks for the review Northwind. Now very likely I’ll go to that after reading yours and ChrisL’s comments.

    Have also booked tickets for LANCO at The Fleece in May. Seeing Loyle Carner 2 days before. So from a bit of spoken word/rap/hip hop to very much keeping it country in one weekend. 😆 Live music is the best.

    Loyle Carner is awesome, he got his mum up on stage at field day 🙂

    I also only found out this weekend that he was born Benjamin Coyle-Larner. I’d always thought Loyle was a strange name.

    Saw Loyle Carner with Kate Tempest a few years ago Bravissimo. Absolutely brilliant gig!

    Genuine question: Some of the bands mentioned on here are quite obscure to me how do you hear off their music? Radio 6?

    6Music play quite a few, then various music magazines like Uncut review them, and have sample CD’s, also many bands get discovered via them being support acts or playing festivals.
    I saw Blondie and Dire Straits as support acts, same with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and The Joy Formidable, who were supporting Howling Bells.
    I discovered Arcade Fire, Death Cab For Cutie, Metric, Feist, Black Mountain, among many others through 6Music.

    Have you heard of this thing called “The Internet”? There are millions of bands on there! And tons of ways to look up stuff you think is “obscure” and find out about it and what it sounds like. It is pretty amazing.

    I know, I know, I’ve resorted to sarcasm, but come on, you can’t expect to have heard of every band in existence these days!

    Thrilled to discover that Miki Berenyi of Lush has a new band with her partner Moose, called Piroshka, along with former members of Modern English and Elastica. They’ve got an album coming out and they’re playing at Rough Trade Bristol in April! Yowza!

    I know, I know, I’ve resorted to sarcasm, but come on, you can’t expect to have heard of every band in existence these days!

    Wot he sez! Whenever a thread like this pops up, there’s always a bunch of bands mentioned that I’ve never heard of, and I’m not exactly uninformed, but there’s always someone new to discover.
    Plus, there’s plenty of artist playing music that may not to be to one’s particular taste.

    Seen a few gigs already this year. Off to catch 3 nights of Umphrey’s McGee in Brooklyn next week.

    Genuine question: Some of the bands mentioned on here are quite obscure to me how do you hear off their music? Radio 6?

    For me it’s mostly a long and erratic chain of Bands Who Have Supported Bands Or Played Festivals When Nobody Else Was On. Like, I saw Frank Turner twice last week and OK, he’s quite a big deal now but I first saw him because his old band Million Dead did a coheadliner with Hundred Reasons who I saw because they supported… well, everyone, but mostly Biffy, and I first saw Biffy because they supported Weezer about 2 decades ago.

    Also People Who Were In The Wildhearts. That’s an extremely long list.

    Well, The Dead South we’re just a bit awesome this evening. I’d recommend anyone on the cusp of a bit of bluegrass thinking about seeing them to give them a go. Really surprised by the amount of committed fans in a Brizzle this evening.

    Just booked Apparat at the grandly named Attenborough Centre for the Performing Arts in Brighton in April.
    Pretty chuffed as he’s only playing London & Brighton and he’s one of my very top fave artistes 😀

    Quite tempted by Rival Consoles in Brixton but April’s fun budget has already been spent.

    That the only date?

    6Music – Mark Riley, Gid Coe, Tom Ravenscroft, Guy Garvey, Don Letts – I don’t listen day time much.

    Craig Charles is good Sat alternative to crap/mindnumbing TV and as long as he doesn’t talk too much, New Yoik div boy Huey Morgan.

    I like Mark Riley on in the background as I actually only like about 15% of what he plays, 50% is interesting scaling down to tolerable and 15% of it is way off the mark for me.

    We have rule in our house “3 Songs” – if MR plays 3 shite songs on the trot my OH gets to change the channel.

    Tom Robinson Now Playing on the Sunday is good catch up listen too.

    I also like Spotify Release Radar and Discover Weekly, plus DezB.

    The Streets a fortnight ago, and Murkage Dave in couple of weeks then nothing planned until Glastonbury

    Have been tempted by the nostalgia thing and there’s a bunch of us going to see New Order in Brizzle during the Summer. Have always managed to miss them over the years, so happy enough to go and see them with a group of friends. Flipping expensive tickets though.

    I went to see the Other Not New Order (Peter Hook & The Light) in Leeds on Saturday. Really enjoyed it.

    Speaking of “flipping expensive nostalgia”, The Who want £110 a ticket! Will be giving that a miss.

    Bought Teleman tickets earlier, so that’ll prob be the next gig for me.

    Long as nostalgia idiots will part with their money, these prices will keep rising. I bet all the gigs I’ve listed as going to on here don’t add up to as much as 1 ticket for those old duffers.

    I’m off to 2 of the 3 nights at Country to Country at the O2 next month, and the songwriters series on the Thursday (3 gigs in 4 days) this is with my 11 year old daughter who is a mad country fan.

    Will no doubt go to a few more small country gigs over the year.

    I’ll try and get to see The Men They Couldn’t Hang again this year at some point – i think i’ve seen them >20 times now but still love them.

    We’re also taking both our Daughters to Little Mix on Halloween. (yes, i know…)

    Had a great year in 2018 for live music which will be tough to beat..

    I’d love to have gone to see Chris Stapleton – but I’m away most of the week preceding on a boys ski/snowboard trip so there’s no way heading off to London for a gig was going to fly in my house. Enjoy, looks like a great weekend. Will you be doing double denim? 🙂

    The wedding present in April – leeds/June – Keele
    DMAs April – Birmingham
    The Beths – May – MCR

    Dammit – just heard about the Loyle Carner gig in Bristol on here & went to hunt for tickets only to see that it’s sold out…

    PrinceJohn, search Loyle Carner Bristol on Facebook – you’ll see the event page. There are people selling tickets there. Can’t comment on the veracity but I’ve bought loads from Fb and never had a problem.

    Had tickets for Snow Patrol and Thurston Moore in Jan – missed them both as I later decided to go on holiday then instead… Ah well.

    Seeing Chvrches this week. Got tickets for Stray Cats, Men at Work and Billy Bragg (Nov) so far this year. Might do Big Country in November too. Going to see local band Working Men’s Club in a month too. And The Cure in August in Glasgow too I hope. That’s about it for now, but I’m sure there’ll be more…

    Not got much planned yet, and less music wise but so far I’m looking forward to The Wall Experience at RNCM in April, Lou Sanders at Crewe Lyceum in May  & Tears for Fears at Delamere in June.

    Also hoping to get tickets for Benjamin Zephaniah in November.
