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.

    • Nice one Kai, l saw them in Wigan in September and lm going to Liverpool in November, they are a great live act. Pity most of the audience are old codgers like me.
    • Given their music I'd imagine that's their target audience.

    • Haha exactly; same thing over here, Carl!
      Cheers Andy! ;-)
  • Hamburgs Finest, 'Die Liga Der Gewöhnlichen Gentlemen', in a sweaty club in Düsseldorf yesterday. Excellent!

  • Absolutely, Chris; stunning voices, Hannah as well as her backing singers'. A brilliant night, with quite a number of the mod family in attendance as well. As they're UK based, I'm sure you'll get a chance to catch them live some time.

    • I shall certainly be keeping an eye out for them coming up here Kai. Looks like it would be a great night.
    • Actually it was Graeme Barkley of Edinburgh's recommendation that had me make up my mind to forsake the See No Evils in favour of Hannah Williams yesterday, so I guess they do their occssional rounds near your manor! ;-)
    • ... Barclay, that is... :-D

    • I would certainly prefer The Hannah Williams gig to See No Elvis ha ha. Graeme is pretty clued up so not surprised his recommendation was spot on. Hopefully they (the band, not GB) come back up again soon.
    • "See No Elvis" sounds ok to me, hahaha!
