Gigs of the year


Will

Recommended Posts

So, the year is nearly over, which means it's time for all those lovely lists...

 

Anyway, here's my 5 favourite gigs of the year:

 

1. The Low Anthem (Kazimier) - simply stunning

2. Amsterdam (Kazimier) - top singalong night as ever

3. The Jim Jones Revue (O2 Academy 2) - rock and roll heaven; so glad I got to see them at last

4. Blue Orchids (Kazimier) - obscure80sindienostalgiaheaven

5. The War On Drugs (Kazimier) - intense pleasure, and a special treat as I probably wouldn't have bothered getting the album if I hadn't seen they were playing and thought I'd chance my arm

1. Tindersticks, Santa Maria de Feira.

2. Saint Etienne, London Palladium

3. Little Boots, XOYO

4. Tindersticks, Somerset House

5. The Tempest, Theatre Royal, Bath. Not strictly a gig, but there was a surprising amount of music in it.

 

er...that's it.

Where did you see them?

 

 

 

I really want to go to this years Festival in the Desert.

 

Islamists have made the area a pretty dangerous place, I think it may have been cancelled. The locals are doing what they can in trying to fight back as they are trying to ban music and other performing arts.
