I did that gig!

Ill be honest I think Bristol lacks a lot from the point of view of a promoter.  There are nice little venues but the academy is poor from a production side as is the colston hall - 5mill spent on a shiny new enterance, but nothing on the production facilities. 

They get away with it and keep busy due to the fact that Cardiff is the next big place and that is really bad.

First gig of the year tonight. The Fleece in Bristol, and appropriately for a city with a fair few of them it's the Subhumans.

Good Wiltshire band.

First gig of the year for me tonight too in ACRYLICIZE in Shoreditch.

VIP invite only tickets for a special accoustic set of Right Said Fred for the release of their new single and also to record a live set for tomorrows Chris Evans Radio 2 show.

Been mates with Fred Fairbrass for a few years, never been a much of a fan of theirs but a free gig is a free gig Smiley.

30 years now and I've moved on and still we got the torys back in the chair
The current generation are out on the streets
With a whole new set of reasons to be fighting police
No justice and Stephen we know where to start
Gangs are busy tearing inner cities apart

30 years still living in a ghost town
Still dragging us down
Telling us the way we should live

I saw one of their first ever at Rumours in Thatcham. I think it was the week after I'm too sexy went to Number 1. I have absolutely no memory of the show itself, as I would invariably been hammered before I got there. I do remember them arriving, in I think a Ford Capri!

Back to work.  First gig of the year, just to ease me in gently, Dillinger Escape Plan in Manchester.  American 'Mathcore' band renowned for being a little lively in the live performance department.  Doing their last tour so no real reason to tone it down at all.  I preparing to be the best friend to the venues security staff.  They're going to love it, Im sure.

Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls confirmed as Blink-182's support act.

I'm hoping a better support act is to be confirmed as I'm not a fan of Frank Turner at all.

I agree, FT&TSS are ok...but to support Blink 182 seems a little bizarre. I didn't know what all the fuss was about when I saw them at Ynot Festival in 2014. There was probably one or two songs that I "liked" but nothing else really moved me. I prefer Beans on Toast, if you've seen him live. Kind of a Billy Bragg political type. Some don't like his lazy vocals but he is what he is, a raw,honest scoundrel. He's also just a normal guy in person as I had a pint with him at the bar about an hour before his gig.

That's cool, yeah it's an odd choice.. like I say, I'm hoping for another support act to be confirmed.

Going to see The Fall at Leamington Assembly in early Feb.

I know they were a favourite of Peel and have been a persistent musical oddity, but I've never really listened to them properly. Heading along out of curiosity as they are local to me.

Anyone ever seen them?
