I don;t think I need to contribute anything else.
I hurt all over.
and echo these sentiments.
but played too long, and could lose a load of the solo'ing that I wasn't expecting. 8 out of 10.
And they were fantastic, Craig Finn is such a fantastic frontman to watch, his joy from performing clearly shows all over his face, very passionate, it's only the 2nd time i've seen them, both times they were fabulous.
really firing. Astonishing Dad's Army of a crowd, mind.
they are old skool
at the Wedding Presnt last night. Now that was a funny looking group of people let me tell you. Mainly older guys in jeans and clmpy shoes, white shirt and leather jacket. Quite a scene.
really have it all worked out.
girlfriends, so that was nice.
making their sandwiches for work next day!
no super 'spin the guitar right round the body in one glorious fluid throw' trick.
although I enjoyed the show last night, I felt after an hour that I had enjoyed it sufficiently.
They're a great band, very tight, and the albums rock, but their ain't much variety live. And from the back it looks like you're watching the East Street Band fronted by Russell T Davies.
Timmy Mallet, Freddy Flintoff, and a french performance artist.
another classic THS show! Roundhouse was packed too
especially beeing at a gig with that many 30/40 something guys. really smelt of farts where i was standing.
Cos I could smell that too. Probably all the Old Speckled Hen.
i didn't see it
and let me assure i was watching for it quite eagle eyed
although i did go to the bar at one point.
"I don't like The Hold Steady 'cos you don't have to persuade yourself to affect a contrived liking for their music, it's just actually good" - type replies? I like them.
Is there a tighter more charismatic band out there?
