Anyone going? Who's supporting?
i think 'it hugs back' are supporting?
it is, yeah. Never heard of them. Know if they're any good?
I gather that they used to be really twee, but I saw them at RoTa and they seemed to be the UK's premier Yo La Tengo tribute band (and there's nothing wrong with that).
The 'Fuck are amazing live.
IT HUGS BACK 8:30pm.
HOLY F**K 9:30pm.
Strange question I know, but reviews mention a drummer, but a mate told me that when he saw them there were just two of them, yet all their photos show 4.
I saw them this week in Birmingham, they were much better than the tour in Spring last year. It will be a legendary saturday night ATP slot, which I am mucho looking forward too. It Hugs Back were good too, what I saw of them. Far more thrashy than on record.
really impressed. Don't know what the song was for the first encore, but that was great.
You guys who are seeing them at ATP this weekend - at that time it's going to be amazing for you!
as usual, new stuff sounds absolutely brilliant
Excellent set, really good atmosphere and (but for the second encore battery change) went off with remarkably few hitches given the number of analogue components being thrown around the stage.
it hugs back were also very good though they desperately need a new name if they're ever going to make any headway.
