I saw that this morning. Can't say I'm surprised.
I've added in The Damned 40th anniversary show at the Academy.
Might go see Mission Of Burma tomorrow at the belgrave for a rather reasonable £12.
Then there's The Melvins coming to the Brudenell in June, that is a right bloody booking.
I can't even remember the last gig I went to it was so long ago. I used to go to one nearly every night.
Oooh. That will sell out in seconds.
£22 a ticket which may deter people, but I don't think it's that bad all things considered!
To nobody's great surprise, I've got a ticket for The Fall.
Nobody excited by Live at Leeds then? Me neither.
I'm never that bothered about Live at Leeds because most of the bands that seem to play it are standing in the woods in a checked shirt types. Belgrave fodder.
Apart from a couple of local ones and maybe a headliner I've generally never heard of any of them.
Galaxians at HPBC for me.
Either that or Unstable Journey at Fox & Newt.
Other than that - it's all shite!
not the usual milo line up with kerr and kleine going to the main event
hoping to see japanese fighting fish and then be bothered to get to the grove to see reacharounds
sela allstars at midnite could be fun
Jesus Christ, £22.50 to see a Jam tribute band. The world has gone mad.
We pitched up at the Brudenell last year to see Big Country. £25 on the door!!!!!! We sat in the main bar and drank instead.
I would love to see Big Country. Not for that price though. Only heard In A Big Country and Fields of Fire but when I put In A Big Country on when I'm playing Fifa I can turn a loss into a victory within minutes. True story.
I don't think 25 quid for a band who were as big (heh) as Big Country were in the Brude is that bad. I paid O2 prices to see Rocket From The Crypt there and I'm imagining it was tons better than it would have been in the O2. But nearly that much for a tribute act? Nah.
Were Big Country really that big?? How much was The Coral gig the other week? I guess I was more than happy to pay £24 for Melvins.
They sold a lot of records back in the day, I guess. Probably more than the Coral!
I was a huge Big Country fan back in the day. They played arenas for a while but were solid Academy sized venues fillers for years. I guess £25 wasn't too bad really but we just all thought it was a bit too much. £20 would have been fine. Weird how little margins affect your choices.
Yeah, 5 quid is only about a pint and a bag of nuts.
