Portsmouth tomorrow night. First time I've seen them in in about 9 years, can't wait!
I've not heard them in years though, plus i'd have to go on my own which would suck if they end up being rubbish.
Are tickets expensive/still available? Is there anywhere to smoke at the wedge these days?
Support from Attack! Vipers! and Final Round Fight.
Small smoking area, but they restrict access (one in/one out) which can get a little annoying.
They definitely will not suck though, one of the best live bands I have ever seen.
Well i've got a five hour train from Manchester tommorow morning, if im not silly tired i might pop over, it's only up the road.
Phenomenally tall, arrived with a guy who was wearing a sky/royal blue Fred Perry?
Saw them at Islington Academy on Monday. Absolutely brilliant. Excellent mix of stuff mainly drawn from A Flight and A Crash and Caution. They sounded incredible and this particular crowd were all about the fun and less about the violent moshing..
I too saw them at Islington (HATE that venue) they were pretty good and it was a fun show. Good to see all the grown ups out for once. Set list left something to be desired, Bouncing Souls cover was the highlight for me...
It brought new meaning to the lyric "I HATE this place but I love these chords" eh? :D
Also: when the fuck are Bouncing Souls coming over here again? NEED TO SEE.
It was a moment, for sure...
was it in the bassment or six feet under (not sure what they call it now)? good turn out?
What was the setlist like and who did you have for support? Four Letter Word?
I know that much as I couldn't make that one either.
Leatherface were suprise suppport! Turnout was great - the place was definitely full without being uncomfortably packed. I'd never been to the place before - apparently it was the new owner's first gig so well done to him, nice space (about 500 people I'd guess) and clean enough sound).
Setlist had a lot of old stuff actually. Opening with 'Flight and A Crash', 'Remedy', and 'Wayfarer' all in a row was an amazing onslaught. Amazing gig.
Sounds like it was the bassment (now 6 feet under), it doesn't look like TJs will be reopening anytime soon (if ever) so a venue of this size putting on gig on a regular basis can only be a good thing.
It was Six Feet Under and, yes, I agree that it seems it could be a pretty worthy TJs replacement (which hadn't been that awesome for years, really)
is definitely the way forward.
Had forgotten how good local support band Attack! Vipers! were...I do wish the Wedgwood wouldn't persist with such a tiny smoking area though. 30 people in an area one third the size of my bedroom!
