I…went to a whole load of gigs and never really got round to blogging about them so here goes:
1. Frank Turner @ BrixtonÂ AcademyÂ 12/12/10
Frank Turner was ACCCCES. Â I’d never seen him before, had an unlistened to album and it turned out that I’d only actually listened to one song. He was rocking. The old songs were ace. The new songs were ace. The cover song was ace. Everything was ace. Â Support were Dive Dive and Ed Harcourt. I love Ed Harcourt. He started the evening with a full beard and then he came on later to perform with Frank…and surprised us all (even Frank) by just having the moustache.
2. XFM Winter Wonderland @ Brixton Academy 15/12/10
This was also ACES. Â Manics were ace. Suede were ace. White Lies, Two Door Cinema Club, Mona and The Drums were all ok.
3. The Twang @ The Relentless Garage 22/12/10
The support were Tantrums who I really liked. Had to leave before The Twang did their encore because of the snow, Christmas and trains and that but they were fun and played all the songs I actually knew 😀
Of course, I would remember more if I’d blogged all this 4 months ago!!!
