Anyone going? I've really not listened to the album enough. Doh.
so over to you BSS, blow me away
really confused by this, some places are advertising it as a BSS gig but others just as a Kevin Drew solo show, any ideas? I don't suppose it matters either way as I don't have a ticket.
BSS playing the Kevin Drew album.
playing kevin drews solo album, so they are both half truths
The tracks I’ve listened to sound really good. I was watching footage yesterday of BSS from the Astoria last year…very excited to see kevin, charles etc again. I hope Apostle is there.
you would be stupid not to go
Im not going cause I dont know where it is :(
come to koko. sucky venue, great band.
Scala, Kings Cross, London, England, UK, THE WORLD
I thought I'd rope someone into coming with me but I have failed.
So if anyone needs a ticket PM me...
am epic one like a normal BSS gig, I'm shattered.
the new songs sounded great and they also played Superconnected, Cause = time, Lover's spit and Major label debut.
But MY GOD WHAT A FUCKING AUDIENCE. 2 girls behind me litreally spent the whole thing taking photos of each other on their phones, 2 guys next to me were taking the piss out of me for doing nothing more than being entusatastic (seriously, nothing more than clapping and singing along) and several people moaning because they were playing so many new songs (despite Kevin quite clearly saying at the start that it was a showcase for new material, and the minor fact it was also printed on the tickets!!)
..the Brendan Canning song they did, even though i couldn't really hear the vocals. Some guys next to us decided to go to the pub after half an hour, as he hadn't played any BSS stuff yet. Fools.
A lot of people didn't seem to realise what the night was about, which is fine but don't bloody heckle the band just because of your ignorance.
the song is called "Hit a Wall", it was really, really really good.
I like it when lead singers celebrate their b'day by getting shitfaced on stage.
Highlight for me....Lovers spit, although all the new stuff sounds really really ace. Can't wait ot get the new album
The new stuff translated really well live, and playing a couple of classics at the end made it even more special, although Kevin Drew rapidly increasing drunkeness meant more talk and less music than I had hoped for. Also good to see Andrew Kenny (American Analog Set) play with them.
I had a couple in front of me...who talked throughout the entire gig! And the guy kept bumping into me and his arms felt like sandpaper. Was not best pleased.
but I had to leave after an hour as I was feeling really unwell and it was so hot in there. I was going to pass out.
But then I felt bad about leaving as there were all these idiots walking out going "That sucked arse, I mean they weren't playing any BSS songs!" - Read the tickets DUMBASS!
i = :(
the speeded up version, it was joyous.
tempted by the koko show now :(
it was a masterful joke, pretending to play another random song and then going into 7/4 Shoreline or not?
The crowd didn't seem to get it.
Which made me question whether i was reading more into it than required?
... cause=time not 7/4
without all the othe rinstruments they sounded, you know, like, ROCK!
the sound was wierd... i remembered thinking on quite a few of the songs some of the more subtile bits were lost in the mix as the guitars were REALLY LOUD.
great gig though, the new stuff sounded really good.... it shows that there are loads of prime cuts off Spirit If... Pressure Kids, Frightening Lives, Bodhi Sappy Weekend...
crowd: poor old bss... ok, they've chosen possibly the hardest route they could have managed - go on tour with just some guitars and play a bunch of new songs - Drew did the right thing with the whole "no pressure" thing.
the crowd near me (right, by the speakers) wasnt too bad...
whats the name of the song off Feel Good Lost they played (as the intro for Superconnected?)... everyone talked over the start of it :|
i'm definately going to Koko... hopefully the crowd will be more familiar with the album
