worth paying 16 euros to see them live ?
Support from GOOD SHOES ( not for me... ) and THE ANSWER ( who? ).
and didn't think it was really worth it.
I was disappointed by their very "neat" sound, tracks played just the way they recorded them, no extra note... which is fine because the songs are quite strong but I was expecting something better live.
admittedly over a year ago, they literally couldnt play
but they can now. i'd go.
everything kept breaking and they didn't get a chance to play more than one song completely.
maybe no for the Long Blondes then...
And what of the Answer ?
And The Answer are good. In my opinion anyway. They are essentially a Led Zeppelin tribute band, but they do what they do very well. You'll probably hate them.
and ace to dance to, The Long Blondes are one of the most boring bands I've ever seen live. There is the possibility that they may have changed in like, 6 months though :s
hot and miss live. I have seen them something like 6 times now (a lot of them were support slots, I am not obsessed or anything) and half the time they have been great and the other half they were incredibly boring. Last time they were great though.
I have 50 % of chance of seing a bad gig if I go ?
It's much less than 50%. I'd wager the 'bad' times were some of the earlier gigs. I'm not their PR person or anything, but I don't think you'll be disappointed.
LOLing at "hot and miss"...
at 9am are atrocious.
I would add that they do appear to have become more consistent lately. Consistently good that is, not consistently bad.
