Really enjoyed Paper Planes at king tuts as well.
action beat/don vito@wheatsheaf
ute@windmill..i know that's our gig but i had a really damn fun time so i think it counts
oh & oxford collapse@the cellar that was a lot of fun
By a mile.
at the warehouse project was amazing
both were really good.
I haven't been to a gig that wild in years. Amazing.
Buraka Som Sistema at The Scala- despite the fact I had to stand next to a bunch of absolute wankers, BSS were crazy fun. Stage invasions FTW!
Wildbirds & Peacedrums- London Social
Ponytail- London 100 Club
Joyous, uplifting, absolutely brilliant.
Marina and the Diamonds was also pretty ACE.
but of Montreal in Manchester and God is an Astronaut at the Brudenell are going to be pretty hard to beat!
replace of Montreal with Marmaduke Duke, they were awesonme last week!
Of Montreal owned Manchester! I also have high hopes for the upcoming Animal Collective show.
the supports head really shitty sound but Metallica were spectacular
fleet foxes / vetiver @ camden roundhouse
fight like apes / dananananaykroyd @ camden barfly
both gigs were fantastic.
2. of Montreal - Club Academy
3. Crystal Antlers/The Invisible/Three Trapped Tigers - The Harley
- out of 23 no less
at the Cube.
Forgot about that. Top 3:
1. Women at The Cooler
2. David Thomas Broughton at The Cube
3. Marina and the Diamonds at Start the Bus
unless they've played again and I missed it!
Oh man. Top 2 then :(. I swear I've had loads lined up on last.fm this year, but either I didn't go or it was all rubbish. Ooh, The Joy Formidable at The Fleece. That was good.
Pain Jerk & Emeralds in Edinburgh
haven't been to many gigs this year though, i'm skint and busy :(
The Soft Pack & Crytsal Stilts @ Deaf Institute Manchester
Built To Spill orrrr Animal Collective orrrr of Montreal
I dont remember :(
I'm not sure I have been to anything this year. That can't be right.
at the ICA the other week
...but then the only other gig I have been to this year was THE CURE at the o2, which was underwhelming (seeing as though they only played for 90 mins).
She hula hooped all the way through slave to the rhythm!
I Am Kloot (Manchester Club Academy)
Secret Machines (Islington Academy)
Elbow + The Acorn (Brighton Dome)
But The Field in Dublin, hands down.
tiny venue, a Friday night - absolutely blinding show!
Dinosaur Pile-Up they were really fun though I enjoyed it.
Best live music experiance would have to be Mala / Coki / Loefah / Skream / LD / Kutz / Goth Trad at DMZ in Leeds on the Irration Steppas sound system. Immense full on sound in that place.
or worriedaboutsatan at a house party in sheffield.
or possibly SVIIB and Kyte in Leeds.
...Union of Knives at the Arches, it had been far too long. Got Errors and Jeniferever to look forward to in April.
At Leeds' Cockpit
and Flowers and Corsano w/ Action Beat at the Brudenell
Flower Corsano were nowhere near as good as when they played with Merzbow last year when I saw them. Off night?
I'll admit initially it came across as quite disorientating but after awhile it was almost hypnotic, that and Action Beat were pretty awesome.
Animal Collective and of Montreal in manchester stand out.
Women at the Brudenell was awesome, as was Wavves and PENS. Sky Larkin and PABH was also great.
Probably of Montreal over all as i was beaming the entire time.
Over the moon when really good recordings of it surfaced on youtube
My fave bit = 1st song in this clip, for those interested
in the sheepwalk in leytonstone. a wild wild wild and riotous rock'n roll/rockabilly bunch. the best gig I've seen for AGES, and god knows I've seen many. if you want to see a great, entertaining and destructive live band, go see them instead of always running to the coolest places and seeing all the hip but infinitively boring bands.
seeing them again soon!
In Belfast this year (yes, that spawned the infamous thread). I've seldom seen a crowd so into a gig, t'was a joy to be there.
(not including zonino that is)
So by default it's Flaky Jake at Tom Brown's in Dorchester.
or maybe Broken Records at the Oran Mor
Findo Gask at the Captain's Rest were also very good
There do seem to be a large amount of Glaswegians on here from the responses I've seen so far...
datashock/blue sabbath black fiji on monday night is probably my highlight so far. nothing incredible this year though, just some very good stuff. may looks like there will be some incredible stuff.
probably no coincidence that I was the least sober at that one one too
I haven't been to many gigs this year (April is the happenin' month) but they were excellent regardless.
Looking at my post-it note I have my mind set on 4 April gigs (3 of which are in 3 days)
@ Remix in Hitchin
Bo Ningen and Cementimental at Catch maybe... M Ward at Bush Hall was really good too.
