Salford next Friday too. Listening to his boiler room set now - this is really good stuff...
Some awesome stuff happening in RSA right now EDM and dance wise. Saw a live performance of these guys with Brenda Mtambo. Maybe it was the Transkei weed but fuck me, what emotion. Whole house jumping.

Go by yourself if no one else wants to go. Honestly, it was transcendent :) I dragged myself off my sickbed to go, and so glad I did.
Thanks for this May Kasahara. She was amazing :) When she first started singing I nearly cried it was so beautiful (the sound was great - local to me pub venue). And I spoke to her a little bit too when I bought the cd (she recommends beginning with the current and working backwards).

Off to see yer man tonight at the Phil.

That's just reminded me I quite like Christy Moore and there is another artist that I love cept can't remember his name cus I'm having a menopause moment. ...but he had his leg amputated and was a big drinker and one of his songs was 'When the wind blows' .....maybe... ahhhh! John Martyn!:oops::facepalm::D

Went to see Gruff Rhys at Yes in Manchester last night.

Crowd was absolutely shocking, constant mumble mumble throughout, some nob head bloke and his mates laughing and joking behind, a woman who thought it was ok to carry out a shouted conversation to be heard over the music during almost every song. Why would you pay £25 for something you're not interested in?

If the music is quiet enough that chat can distract you from it, the gig should be seated IMO. Standing shows in boozers are noisy, that's just the way it is.

Some noise is of course expected but an ongoing shouted conversation lasting most of the set is completely out of order

Probably going to this matinee show in Hebden a week Saturday - Bellies are a quality feminist post punk act from Bristol, EP/64 are a french/bristolian noise & shouting thing. Really good. Damage Residue seem to be a no-rehersals improv group made up of a musicians from various Golden Lab Records associated bands...

Missed this! How was it?
Really good ta. I liked the talleyrand, will keep an eye on it. Alastair Roberts was excellent as usual - he had the drummer from trembling bells and the viola player from woven skull playing in his band, which was tight as fuck. They even had an decent selection on brews...

Sounds great, aye it's a good place. I live round the corner, nice having that kind of pub/venue on my doorstep.
