I saw the Waterboys last night in Whelans. It was a dream come true to see them in such a small venue. This was a benefit gig with several artists on the bill, including the brilliant NoCrows from Sligo.
It wasn't billed as the Waterboys, but it was Mike Scott and Steve Wickham, and that's the Waterboys to me. They played a great acoustic set, including two new songs. They finished with "The Pan within". Impressive how they can take such a 'grand' song and scale it down to just guitar, fiddle and vocals.

Went to see Status Quo on the 'Frantic Four' tour in Manchester last week. I'm sure there are some that think it's cool to scoff at the Quo, but I'll tell you what, it was a lesson in how to do a no bullshit rock n' roll show. That lineup ceased to exist around 1977 so there was none of the cheesy 80s keyboardy stuff. Brilliant.

The Smith Street Band were at The Windmill in Brixton tonight. Fun seeing them in a small room. Different from but not better than seeing them supporting Frank in the US last year on a bigger stage. Catch them on tour in the UK while you can. They're back in London next Wednesday for a free show at The Old Blue Last.

I saw the John Butler Trio at Vicar Street last night. Great gig. It was my third time seeing them, after first coming across them at the Cambridge Folk Festival.
Great crowd too. This was the extra show, as tonight's concert sold out a long time ago.
It was a nice and long gig as well, at 2 hours 15 minutes. It would have been worth going for the epic "Ocean" alone, mind. Amazing to see an audience whipped into a rave-like frenzy by a solo acoustic guitar instrumental!
Only low point: Freddie Mercury-style "Weeyoo weeyoo"-ing. Yawn. There should be no need for that when playing to your own audience in an almost sold out venue….
I bought their "Live at Red Rocks" DVD. John Butler Trio are playing Red Rocks again in June, with Frank supporting.

Heading up to Brew at the Bog next weekend at Inverness.

Great music, great beer and great location. What can go wrong?

Aye, ok, maybe the weather. :lol:

I know many folks have seen Chuck Ragan, but this was my first time with his backing band, the Camaraderie. (I had seen him as HWM and Revival). I really like this mix of musicians, as they've all played together before, and the songs from the new album sound great!

Going to see Flaming Lips at the end of the month. I feel a bit robbed though. The gig was originally at the arena, but it has been downgraded to Rock City. Flaming Lips are famed for their stage show, which isn't going to fit on the small Rock City stage. I feel like I've paid full price for half a gig.

In other news, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip were fantastic last night.

I'll be popping on down to the Chuck Ragan gig at Rock City at the end of the month, looking forward to it, I think Billy the Kid is supporting too which will be cool as well.

Thanks for the heads iup on the Flaming Lips, not a massive fan but might be cool if the price is right.

I'll be at Chuck Ragan too. That's a really busy week for me which starts with Nine Inch Nails, followed by Dot To Dot, then Chuck, then Flips and hopefully ends with Camden Rocks.

Jason Isbell. One of those acts that blow you away live. See him if you get the chance.

I saw them just down the road from Whelans in the Olympic Ballroom a long, long time ago, one of the best gigs I've ever been to! Saw them just before Christmas as well, still sounding great and it was brilliant to see (most) of them back together one more time.

First night of the I Am The Avalanche's Wolverine tour at The Macbeth with Turnover, Major League and Moose Blood. Go see 'em on this tour. I enjoyed the support sets and loved my first Avalanche experience hearing their music for the first time. They stepped it up another level. Looks like I'll be back down the Joiners on 23 May for round two.

It was very good again. The atmosphere is really refreshing and relaxed.

Prides were the stand out for me. Cracking band.I even heard them getting radio play on Radio 1 today.

Not got anything booked in the next month or two.

Got my James tickets booked though. :D
