Pendulum at Swindon on Monday night.
We are listening to their new album - Immersion - right now too.
Brilliant band with a great sound.

Congratulations.
Not on the tickets, but for the hunting down and resurrection of a nine year old thread.  :thumbsup:

Going to see them in Bexhill-on-Sea.  Have booked a room almost opposite the venue.  Would have loved to see them at the Hammy Odeon (yes I know it's now the Eventim Apollo), but am likely to be taking CET Junior 2 up to Scotland for a Winter Mountaineering course that weekend as it's half term.  It's a bit of a commute into London the next day for work but needs must.

Still trying to decide between Utrecht, Ghent & Antwerp.

I'd fancy one of those also, but why not just go to glasgow ?
The only gig I've ever been to abroad was when I was on holiday anyway, and it wasn't a great gig.  I'm interested to know, Do you reckon the (e.g.) Utrecht gig would be better than Glasgow and if so why ? Better atmosphere ?

A. Because if it's midweek and I'm going to have to take a day or 2 off to schlep down south anyway I might as well go somewhere nice and make a trip of it. (If they were in Furryboottoon that would be another matter). Also I'm running out of holidays to take, the European gigs will be in a new holiday year.

B. I'm a grumpy bastard and I hate going to gigs where people do that dog whistle thing almost constantly or talk the whole way through the gig (Explosions in the Sky in MCR).
We've been to several gigs abroad now and find the audiences to be much more respectful and just generally less full of knob ends. We went to see 65 Days of Static in Ghent a few years ago. Not only did you get decent Belgian beer, served in glasses (only 1 dropped the whole night) but in the super quiet pieces you could have heard a pin drop.

This ^^^^.  Yesterday there were people near us who, having coughed up 90+ quid to see His Bobness were still gobbing away throughout his set.  My grate frend Mr Woolrich gave them a telling-off, which earned him congratulations from a swarthy Scotsman afterwards :thumbsup:

B. <snip>

I didn't know foreign audiences would be less full of talkers. That is a problem in a lot of the gigs here.
But not Rhiannan Giddens who we're off to see again in Edin in November.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

While we're at it, we've got tix to King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard in Utrecht in Oct, which I'm quite excited about.
(And not music, but the exceptionally sweary Janey Godley (she of the 'Trump is a c*nt' sign) and Johnathan Pie.

Postponed from Christmas 2018, we have tickets to see The Primitives early next month in Birmingham.

Likelihood of attending our first gig in ages.... low given my current lack of mobility  :(

It's funny when you get old, you go from going to a couple of gigs a month to a couple a year if you are lucky.  :facepalm:

I'm old enough to have been at the Newcastle leg of Bob's "infamous" electric tour - first half acoustic, second with electricity.  Someone shouted, "Bobby, (obviously knew him personally) we've come to hear a folk-singer, not a rock-singer!"  To which, the response was, "And e've come to hear him, not you!"  BD only said one thing all night, I think.  It was, "Don't bug me, I'm a sick man."  I remember the "controversy" as being blown up by the press out of all proportion.  You had to be there.  It was a great concert, in at the start of something epochal.  It's also why I probably won't be going to see his upcoming shows - too many memories to keep intact!

Going to see Mollys Party Band tonight. In fact I’m a band member, their videographer to be fair. At least that means backstage pass and artists village.

Then there is Muete, Orbital and quite a few others. I’m always edumacated here...

He broke his arm just before the gig was due to start... Not good for a juggler. The start was delayed for a while so that the others could work around his absence.

We've just got home from A&E.

Just waiting to see Orbital. Everyone will be able to see them on account of their kit being on a platform about 12 feet above the stage.
