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.

    Hard not to dance.

  • The magnificent Tesky Brothers at Concorde2, Brighton on 22/01/20. They added in a Hammond for this gig which only added to the soulfu sounds that pour out of this band. 
    Sorry no video links, YouTube is blanking my uploads. 

    • Managed to get YouTube uploads working again after a reinstall.  When he straps on the Telecaster, Sam can make it sound like Peter Green's "magic" Les Paul. Josh's take is that he sings the guitar rather than plays it - I can go for that!
