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.

    Sadly heard from my mates in Houston a couple of days later that their show was cancelled after a few songs as Roger lost his voice!

    Excuse the crappy iPhone pic!

  • 3632347423?profile=RESIZE_930xDurand Jones & The Indications in San Francisco 24th September.  First time I’ve seen them with a brass section, which was nice.  Unfortunately Aaron’s voice was bust so no falsetto numbers from him, which didn’t please the Latino/Low Rider community who put much store in this  

    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... :-)
