Not impressed with the venue much but WHAT A BAND!
Had to get up at 5 this morning to get back to notts, mind.
Effectively it was a giant soundproof box. The floorspace was vast and someone there should be told there isnt anything wrong with being able to SEE before a gig starts. Yeah, the bars were awful, and it felt like I was treated like livestock most of the night. Fortunatley the band was good enough to completely whisk me away from this.
was awful so they must have done some pretty bad shit when they 'renovated' it. i have yet to grace the new done up building with my presence.
about 3 times heavier than the last time i saw them though (not complaining)
Bristol too - whoot!
This isn't a very interesting reply.
incredible show tonight. And Eluvium was stunning too.
<3s for EITS
Really enjoyed Eluvium-especially the slide guitar parts.
During one part of EITS's set there was one moment of absolute awe when the guys had their guitars raised up ready for a huge crescendo, and you could feel the crowd were kinda startled. I'm not sure I've seen such a committed performer as the guy in the middle, he looked like he was about to die.
On a bad note though, I got really pissed off with people taking pictures and videos on their phones. It's really distracting when someone shoves a phone in front of your face and proceeds to record the stage for 10 minutes. What are they going to use them for really? Really?
in that I ended up sitting next to the two nicest people I've ever met at a show. They'd come all the way from Coventry on a coach and it turned out we had almost identical taste in music so spent the best part of an hour talking. It's kinda heartening when something like that happens, especially when most gigs are spent surrounded by people who talk incessantly, wave their phones around or spill beer everywhere.
tour, seen them few times before though. i remeber when they played with four tet in the mint lounge and i couldnt see the band apart from a head here and there. best time i saw them was at the night and day about 4 years ago was really rammed tho in ther! id liek to check out the new 'improved' academy 1 though, i wouldnt have thought a band like eits would play such a large venue
was brilliant, although due to cruddy railway disruptions the last train was cancelled and we had to leave at ten. Eluvium was magical though :).
because nothing will ever beat being stood front and centre for them at brudenell a few years ago.
literally the most amazing thing i've ever seen. like watching/listening the end of the world unfold less than a metre away.
plus academy 1 is like an aircraft hanger
