At least I think I am. After a cock up with there being no way of buying them online this morning despite them being supposed to be there, I ended up calling them at about 1 whilst I was in town and ordered tickets over the phone. I gave the right email address but they seemed to miss out the last part of it, I realised this when I checked my emails about half an hour later and had received nothing. I called them back and told them about the error in email address, they said they'd send another one and it would be with me in 5-10 minutes. After 25 minutes I had received nothing so i called them back again to double confirm, it was the right one, and they said they'd resend it. I got home, and this is now 5 hours after the initial booking and there is still no confirmation email. So I called back again, I read out the email this time and apparently it is the right one, but they said there can sometimes be a delay. I just want confirmation so I know the tickets are for the right show on the right day and going to the right address... Isn't this what my booking fee is supposed to cover? They say there is an order there, but I have the sort of mind that won't rest unless I see it for myself. So i am pretty sure I'm going, just need confirmation. Either way I'm pretty excited at the prospect.

Listened to the album for the first time yesterday. Thought it was great and waiting to see if they'll confirm an Irish show at some stage. I've heard their live shows have been pretty exceptional so far.

Saw St. Vincent yesterday, which was amazing. It was a sweaty basement and she played a note on her guitar fairly frequently that I'm sure was designed to get you to shit your trousers, but that was all good. I managed to get a good perch standing on the seats at the side so I could see her perfectly but the caveat was that she wandered around the crowd during her encore getting people to play her guitar. Gutted. The highlight was a vocal/keyboard-only version of The Party, which was gorgeous. Her cover of She Is Beyond Good And Evil was a close second though.

I have Battles on Monday, DJ Shadow in December, and I'm toying with the idea of seeing Widowspeak in Brixton in couple of weeks.

I got into Widowspeak after seeing Moon talk about them on here. Their debut album is a nice little gem.

Ah man, really wanted to see her live but couldn't. Sounds class. Did she do her cover of Kerosene by Big Black?

Battles at Gateshead Town Hall tomorrow night for me. I'm quite excited.

Nah, she just did the one cover. She was onstage for an hour and a half though, so can't complain. She also wore leather hot pants.

This I need to see.
Apparently one of her favourite guitarists is Kerry King, which I though sounded a bit weird at first but having seen videos of her impressively fast and intricate guitar playing it all makes sense now.

Saw them last night - you're in for a treat. Ice Cream live is a thing of sex-pop beauty. I can't think of many other bands who make difficult, complex math-rock such unashamed dance-tastic fun. Oh and the new take on Atlas was dare I say it, better than when they were a four piece. And as for the closing Sundome - aural MDMA.

Just got tickets to see Skindred, Therepy? and Black Spiders at Brixton for the low, low price of £5 (+3.55 fees). I was shocked there were still tickets available.

http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=gb_london&query=detail&event=477507

I also have tickets for Rodrigo y Gabriela and Presidents of The United States of America next year.

Awesome. I hope they play the 2 second long song. It's great live.

I. Just. Shit.
The bass drum in Meantime is amazing.
I shared a sandwich on their tour bus with them once, nice guys, despite the fact that sandwiches were the only things on offer.


Edit: - London venue for me I think.

Apr 2 Electric Ballroom Camden Town, London United Kingdom
Apr 3 Sound Control Manchester, Greater Manchester
Apr 4 Cathouse Glasgow, Lanarkshire United Kingdom
Apr 6 The Fleece Bristol, Avon United Kingdom
Apr 7 HMV Institute Birmingham, Digbeth United Kingdom
Apr 8 Sub 89 Reading, Berkshire United Kingdom

It's not until November, but the tickets arrived yesterday - Dweezil Zappa doing a Zappa Plays Zappa show, including Apostrophe in full.

These guys get a lot of flak in the States, but having already seen them twice a few years ago I can say without any hesitation that it's the only way you'll hear Frank's music played as authentically and sympathetically as Dweezil and his crew do, plus the Dweez is an incredibly under rated guitarist in his own right.


Well, it was last week. Fucking amazing show (best I've ever seen them) and they clearly enjoyed it and the crowd was the best Colston Hall crowd I've been in for years. The sync with vintage Frank footage projected on a big screen was really well done.

Just a shame that the two cunts sat in front of me loaded up on beer before the show even started and then proceeded to shout to each other for almost the entire first half. I politely told them to shut the fuck up and it seemed to do the trick, but I don't understand why people spend £20/30/40/50+ on tickets for a concert and then just get pissed up and talk through the whole thing. Happens all too often. I'm starting a petition to either get alcohol banned at gigs, or to impose a two drink limit

Next up - Steve Hackett in February, and many months of umming and ahhing about whether or not to go see Ian Anderson and his solo band peform the whole of Thick as a Brickn without any Jethro Tull members...

I went to that show in Glasgow. It was indeed awesome. From now on, any band I see that doesn't have fireworks, pyrotechnics and a rotating drum kit will seem pretty dull in comparison.

Just bought tickets for Ocean Colour Scene's Moseley Shoals gig at the Brixton Academy on 8th December.



That should have read the 10th.

Either way it was awesome. I went feeling quite ambivalent towards it, but it was amazing. They had one of the Inbetweeners join them a couple of times, and Steve White, too.

OK, it was actually LAST NIGHT i.e. WEDNESDAY I saw them and let me tell you..... THEY BLEW THE F**KING ROOF OFF! And yes, Tommy Lee's upside-down drum solo was TOO AWESOME FOR WORDS!

Excellent stuff! Really good band. Their drummer is intense. My old band played with them once and I thought I'd go speak to Shane -  he's bloody terrifying. Nice, but terrifying.

Was there too last night, best concert I've been to in a while, arguably the loudest as well.

Great as Tommy Lee's little showpiece was it was Rick Allen's drum solo that really impressed me though, quite an inspiring sight truth be told.

Also even after 24 years it's still nice to see that Pour Some Sugar On Me still has the ability to make seemingly quiet women start shedding clothes and dancing like a stripper in front of you, good times!
