    Gigs!

    I went to see an American band called Shiny Toy Guns on Wednesday night in Camden, they were awesome. They weren't on stage for that long, about an hour, only a new band, but for £8.50 I really couldn't complain, they are better live than what the studio album is! It has been quite weird how I got into them too, just heard a bit of one of their songs before they released anything in the UK, so I searched for more stuff but couldn't find much, so I just bought their album off the cuff, which isn't something I usually do, and now I'm really into them!!

    They even had good support acts, the first one blew us away, they are called The Hourly Radio, great music, had to buy the CD!!!

    I have really got into gigs/concerts in the last 6 or so months, have already been to see Snow Patrol, +44, Lostprophets, Meat Loaf, and I'm seeing Angels and Airwaves next month. And already got my eye on seeing The Editors, Stereophonics and the Manics, when i get round to booking the tickets!


    Anyone else going to see anyone this year, been to see anyone??

    No Trigger/Set Your goals in august for me, i recently missed strung out, and i think comeback kid are over at some point. I've hardly been to any gigs lately, which is a shame as i do enjoy them, but not many mates are into my kind of music.

    theres no enjoyment in bands for me anymore

    i watch them and just wish it were me on stage instead... i can appreciate a good gig, but still, id rather be in thier shoes, or im thinking about what goes on behind the scenes.

    ive seen copious amounts of bands, and even more unsigned bands... and played with a fair amount of them too!

    bands ive seen worth noting:

    slipknot, slayer, stone sour, murderdolls, saliva, lostprophets, trivium, papa roach... and many more... infact i have a pile of ticket stubs on my desk...

    i just hope 1 day i will get back into bands to the extent i used to be.
