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.

    • Oh I love P.P. Arnold. I almost fainted the day she accepted my friend request on Facebook, hahaha!
    • Yeah she is a really nice and down to earth person too Kai. Met her on a couple of occasions and she was very generous with her time.
  • Well Mr Dylan was disappointing.  A few old songs but done in an unrecognisable way, I don't mind his newer stuff (apart from the covers), but it was a really poor show I though.  Maybe some diehards would think otherwise.

  • Troon Rally was full on -lucky to have the men behind Friday Street -Great to see Big Boss Man play last night .

    The 45s were -as always -spot on
    • Saw lots of great pics on FB, Scott... looking forward to the GMW!
    • Thoroughly enjoyable time down at the Troon Mod weekender. The Saturday daytime was great with some brilliant sounds from the people on the decks, and then the 45s were really good. The night time do was very busy and yet again the punters playing the music never let us down. After that it was back to the hotel for a few post do drinks before bedtime some time after 3 am. A big well done to Mikey, Molloy, and all the Tailor Made team who made it such a blast. My only regret is that I couldnt stay on for the Sunday night.
  • Freedom Sounds Festival, Cologne, last night: The Bluebeaters, Stone Foundation and The Beat, among others... Stone Foundation threw me; what a fantastic live act! Go see them if you have the chance!!!

    • Saw the Stone Foundation in bristol last Thursday. Where have they been all my life.
    • That's what I thought, Eggy ;-)
  • Gigs I will have been to this time next week. Really looking forward to coming Friday.
