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.

    • Car park fees really p**s me off, pure profiteering for virtually no maintenance or outlay, Hospitals being the biggest culprits, profiteering from folk who are ill or are visting sick relatives, absolutely disgraceful. All owned by consortiums of wealthy businessmen :-(

  • Saw the Skatalites earlier this month with original vocalist Doreen Shaffer. The horns, the timbre, the tension, timeless compositions and the roar of appreciation from the crowd made this a magical evening.
  • Jake Bugg solo in Cologne yesterday; in a Church, of all places. Ideal accoustics for that kind of gig.

    • I really liked his first 2 LP's, I thought the third was poor, what's the new one like Kai?

    • Stick with the first two, Dave. The songs from the following two are great when performed live, albums are 'overproduced', though.
    • I have been to Cologne cathedral and it was amazing. Don't suppose the gig was in there right enough.
    • Hahaha, no, Chris, but that's just what I said to Fadime yesterday, that you could fit an awul lot more people in there!

    • Yeah you most certainly could Kai, and I am sure that the accoustics would be amazing.
  • A Must See for The Small Faces Fans.I saw The Small Fakers(My 2nd Time) in Truro last nite.Good Mod Style Support from local band The Viewers who do all their own stuff.

    The Small Fakers are Touring and could be at a Venue Near or not so Near to You. Check em out.Here is a Link for Tour Dates/Venues  ;

    • Heading to Glasgow on Saturday to see them on a double bill -thank god for a weekend gig .
