Saw Drenge at The Plug in Sheffield last night. Fantastic gig. They rattled right through their setlist, without pausing, which meant no energy was lost and the crowd were really into it from start to finish.

Last night Dropkick Murphy's/Lucero/Skinny Lister. Great show, as always.

Skinny Lister was a pleasant surprise. At one point, the front"man" and accordion player were shadow boxing during song, but he took a hit and fell face first off stage to concrete. He finished the show with black eye, swollen lip, and bleeding from forehead abrasion. AFTER repairing his accordian with duct tape!

I saw Rocket from the crypt at the Koko recently and they were superb, had wanted to see them for so long, so I was over the moon when they announced the tour.

The computers were not too bad either...
I keep having dreams.......

Went out to see Maximo Park on Saturday night in Glasgow.

It was very good especially since the lead singer had just had an emergency eye operation. He was a little calmer than nornal and wore sunglasses in the dark.

It finally, finally worked out that I got to see Dave Hause. I was not disappointed. Northcote was also great. Added surprise was Jon Gaunt was in the crowd, and I was able to meet him. Nice evening.

Saw Oxygen Thief last night. It was excellent, he played the new ep in full and it sounded great, he gets so much intensity live - it's just a shame that there weren't that many people there to see it.

Went to see Heidi Talbot last night in the excellent Seamus Ennis Centre in The Naul, North county Dublin. Always a bit of an undertaking due to the lack of public transport there, but the weather was kind. I had a lovely walk from Balbriggan and was lucky to get a lift back to Dublin. The Seamus Ennis Centre does not have a beer license, but they allow you to get pints in the pub across the road and bring them over!
The music - I doubt there is much overlap between Heidi Talbot fans and Frank Turner fans, but I loved it. Lovely songs, beautiful singing, atmospheric harmonium playing and Heidi has a great stage presence. Very dry humour. She was accompanied by guitar player Ian Carr and by her husband John McCusker, who is sickeningly talented and can play every instrument ever invented. It was a great evening.

Ha! I agree. I have a paper file titled "upcoming stuff" where I store tickets, hotel reservations, and such. So after December 8, I had a completely empty file for a while, and I was bummed out, even a little forlorn. Then once I got some spring stuff added, I felt much better. I'm downright ecstatic right now!

You sure have seen some great shows, with many more to come. Enjoy!

My daughter wanted to see You me at six, so I got tickets for Glasgow 2 weeks ago.

My ears were burned off. They were loud, but the music was very forgettable.

The support were Young Kato, who I've seen before and enjoyed, were good again but completely out of place at this gig.

Next support were Don Broco who were hard to listen to. Didn't like them at all.

Things you have to do with a teenager.
