...people were clapping along, quite a lot of the time.
What the flip is going on?
With Mr Blobby.
Was horrendous, this must stop now.
people getting gunged at EITS gigs??
someone died of boredom
clapping though? hahahahahahahaha. that's everything EITS deserve.
as people singing along to Atlas
Especially if they had a really joyous look on their faces. Must make sure I never see that or legs will get broken.
In public - no
this happened during one song at least at their last astoria show. No clapping during Gravenhurst though :(
the amps spontaniously combusted!
The guys next to me shouted, "Explosions in the amp!"
How was Eluvium? Dunno if I can be arsed hauling myself up to Dublin tomorrow to see the show.
...in all honesty, a route one post-rock show. Mogwai still do it so much better.
6 out of 10.
The show started well, but got samey and wasnt punishing enough. Seem like nice chaps though and there was good merch so not all bad.
(not going to get a job as a music journalist am I?)
so cant comment on that one.
was nice enough, layers of melodies all ascending in the right places etc etc. Bit boring watching one man on a laptop playing solitaire while iTunes does all the hard work.
EITS were good but people talking, clapping-and not even in time-was a bit annoying. They were still great though and i had a good time.
but didnt see you :(
near the sound desk, generally getting annoyed with the people around me.
I bet he won't like it seeing, like me, his best gig in Bristol was Mogwai in 1999 at the Anson Rooms with 13 minutes of pure beautiful feedback
bands ever get that pure loud chest hurting bassiness that mogwai do in good venues?
Mogwai show was too good.
on wednesday. I seem to remember last I saw them, people were just shouting out crap as they'd spent about 8 minutes building up for a cataclysmic crescendo. Must've been pretty offputting
and yes when they played with four tet in newcastle a couple of years back there were people being pricks
but being disorganised i haven't got a ticket, touts had them at cost last time, might try my luck?
last year some geeky little shit next to me wanted to illustrate to everyone in the audience how well he knew the tunes by SINGING the guitar melodies with a "la dee dee de dah" kind of style.
Fortunately his friends challenged his behaviour and he replied with a comment which I will take to the grave of "yes, sorry, I know I'm a SUPER FAN" as if that justified his irritating antics.
I'm telling you - the dweeb was a hairs bredth from getting a beating there and then.
did 'your hand in mine' feature?
i think. Think they played quite a lot off that record.
thankfully no such acts like clapping along, but plenty of dicks talking throughout Eluvium's set which was disappointing.
EITS were pretty solid. Included Day Six from The Rescue which was nice.
I told the mob behind me to can it after hearing for the fiftieth time that one of them would "do 'er like an animal". I hate 'indie' being popular.
