They clash with Villagers, and I've seen them already this month.

Norris, who did you end up seeing at Dot to Dot then and what did you think to them? I got to see quite a lot thanks to the venues all being next to each other.

Had tickets for this but as it was rearranged couldn't justify the time out of studying to go. Shame.

Can't believe I missed it. Didn't even know they were playing.

I've got pretty much zero knowledge of the band and had never consciously heard them before...although I did recognise the last song called Mountains...they were pretty good though...

It was all kept pretty secret til the last minute. The ticket agencies emailed everyone who had a ticket telling them to get there early as there'd be a special support which they couldn't announce beforehand..I had no idea they were massive...

Biffy - for reasons beyond my comprehension - are playing Wembley Arena. They're huge. Totally passed me by. Makes me wonder whether I should have actually watched them on the number of occasions I had a chance to.

They used to be very good live, nowadays not so much. New stuff is dire.

It all sounds like the soundtrack to Sesame Street to me. Think I am just a teeny bit too old to "get it".

Yup. They are neither pop enough, nor rock enough to interest me. It's all just quite bland to my ears. No balls. Nothing new or exciting. And I wish they'd put their fucking shirts on.
