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.

    I fell in with a couple of lovely guys, Mario and Rudy who kindly saw that I was suitably refreshed with alcohol and herbs. They were seeing them again in Santa Cruz on Saturday and hoping the voice was fixed.

    Joined onstage by support act Rudy De Anda for a scorching version ...


    • Lucky you, Steve. How's the California hetbs, hahaha!

    • Herbs, that is... :-)

    • Rudy & Mario referred to it as ‘the devil’s lettuce’. ;o)

  • Good timing on my California trip!

    • Wow, nice one! Enjoy your trip, Steve!

    • Thanks Kai, obviously have my eyes peeled for other opportunities. The Tesky Brother’s are on in Paso Robles on the 28th but I’ll likely be too far south by then. 

  • Another scintillating set from the fabulous Cretins, kicking off the Mod Weekender at The Dorset Bar & Kitchen in the North Laines. Some lovely scooters parked up outside Jump The Gun just opposite - the Mods are in town early.

    Lee Fields & The Expressions - WOW, just WOW!  Not see so much effort go into a performance since JB himself; the man sweats soul from every pore.

    Difficult to take a decent picture of the man in action; he couldn’t keep still and neither could I.
