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??
