Just got back from taking daughter to Echosmith, the Mowgli's, and American Author. Really positive upbeat show.

A really fun show was Austin Lucas' Minimum Overdrive tour here in Gainesville. He, along with Jon Snodgrass, Northcote (Matt Goud), and Jayke Orvis played in a Revival Tour-style vibe. It worked out beautifully.
shows? 90 so far...

I saw Kíla last night. This concert was part of the Steeple Sessions series, held in a church on St Stephen's Green. I am fond of gigs in churches. Great use of beautiful old buildings and generally great acoustics. There is no drinks license so people shut up and listen to the music.
Kíla hadn't adapted their setlist to the venue. I had kind of hoped they would do some acoustic songs, but it was loud and trance-y as ever. No complaints, it was excellent. Best live band in Ireland - 27 years and counting.

Seeing Bears Den at Rock N Roll Hotel in November, and Alex Clare at 9:30 Club in December, both D.C venues. Just picked up Dropkick Murphys tickets for their March 6 show at The Fillmore which is just outside of D.C. Wish that show wasn't so far away but I'm sure they'll be plenty of others to see before then.

Went to our friends' son's first gig as The Dark Rasmurn Project on Thursday at The Parish in Huddersfield, really decent gig. I had massive bass envy cos the bassist had a really lovely 7 string, the posing bastard.

Went to see Lamb in Bristol. They did an instore at Rise for free about a week beforehand - it was utterly incredible. Not seen them since 2003 and had goosebumps then, and again at the instore and again at the gig at the O2.

anyone who dosn't know them its kind of electonica - beats but with string arrangements (depending onthe song) and vocals from Lou Rhodes

they just started a UK & Europe tour

‘Kids in Glass Houses’ Farewell Tour at Koko last night.

Had to stand on the balcony rather than down on the floor with the masses, due to spending far too long working through the cocktail menu at the local Mexican. Great view, and thanks to the aforementioned cocktails, had no issue freaking out up high as if we were down below.

A sold out Farewell gig was always going to be charged and it didn’t disappoint; everyone there to make the most of the last London show. The crowd drowned out the sound system many times, peaking in a fervent frenzy for the ‘Matters at All’ finale. Tears all around in the crew and it was only the penultimate night of the tour – it’s going to get very messy in Cardiff tomorrow night.

”Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight”.

RIP KIGH. Missing you already.

No I haven't seen them live for about 10 years. Saw them quite a bit when I was a teenager.

Saw Smith Street Band in Philadelphia Tuesday night. Just a tiny little venue with 40 or so other people, including one of my favorite FT gig buddies. The new stuff is great. I didn't think they were a band I'd do any road trips for when I first saw them open for Frank just over a year ago, but there I was. Really worth the drive.

Just saw Arctic Monkeys four times, three in Texas and at Voodoo Fest in New Orleans ... nice little road trip at just under 4,000 miles. I got to see five states I'd never set foot in before so that was neat. Loved Texas. Bit bittersweet as that was the end of their tour in the U.S.; I saw them a bunch this year and it kind of kept me going to be honest.
At Voodoo I did the barrier-camp deal and in the process discovered Death From Above 1979, very cool set from them. And I was pleasantly surprised by 30 Seconds to Mars ... I'd heard some negative things about them and their fans, but honestly, the fans I met were lovely and dedicated, and the show itself was super. The songs weren't necessarily my style, but I thought Jared Leto did a nice job of keeping the crowd involved ... not always easy to do at a festival. I also liked Mini Mansions as openers for AM at two of the Texas shows and look forward to checking out their album.
Now I'm entering a dead zone gig-wise ... good for my wallet, bad for my brain.
2011: 8/26, 28, 11/4(x2); 2012: 2/21, 22, 23, 24, 3/9, 11, 12, 18, 9/8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 28, 29, 30; 2013: 6/5, 6, 7(x2), 8, 7/26, 31, 8/1, 2, 10/4, 5, 11/16, 19, 29(X2). 2014: 6/4. 2015: 3/8, 9(x2), 5/12, 13, 14, 15. 18

Band of Skulls, O2 Academy, Oxford.

BoS don't look like anything special, don't talk like anything special (in fact hardly talk at all, but due to a distinct lack of charisma or anything particularly interesting to say, that's not a bad thing), but when they play they knock 'special' right out of the ball park. Love 'em.

I haven't got a musical bone in my body, but even I can tell that Russell Marsden plus guitar equals extraordinary. The man's a phenomenon. Which explains why I was hanging over the front barrier practically worshiping at his feet.

Glad I've never had to choose between seeing Mr Turner or the Skulls, because that's a decision I'd struggle to make.
