What Gig's Have You Been To?

Couldn't see a thread dedicated to live music.

I went to see The Specials last night at Rock City,Nottingham.  Good gig small venue (about 2500).  Decent atmosphere.  Was almost a very short concert with Mr Hall threatening to walk off after bottles were thrown.  It seems some people just can't help acting like idiots.  Some well dressed folks about too.  I'm always blown away when I see a women skinheads, a male skinhead so what?  But a woman skinhead that takes guts.

    • Jimi Hendrix – Somewhere Lyrics

      Oh uh
      I see fingers, hands and shades of faces
      Reachin' up and not quite touchin' the promised land
      I hear pleas and prayers and a desperate whisper sayin'
      Oh, Lord, please give us a helpin' hand
      Yeah yeah

      Way down in the background
      I can see frustrated souls of cities burnin'
      And all across the water, baby
      I see weapons barkin' out the sting of death
      And up in the clouds I can imagine UFOs jumpin' themselves
      Laughin' they sayin'
      Those people so uptight, they sure know how to make a mess

      Back in the saloon my tears mix and mildew with my drink
      I can't really tell my feet from the sawdust on the floor
      But as far as I know, they may even try
      To wrap me up in cellophane and try and sell me
      Brother sell me, and don't worry about lookin' at the score
      Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
    • She sounds very clued in !
