Who's off? I'm very excited indeed
What's the Scala like? I've never been.
Not too big, not too small. plus it's tiered, so no matter where you're stood you can see the stage. Bizarrely enough I played there in November, so seeing Bright Eyes play the same stage will be very odd indeed.
they always seem to massively oversell it so if you dont get there early enough you get trapped behind the stairs down to the main bit, if you are near the front it is ok though
Who could have known that not only is the new album brilliant but they'll be playing old stuff as well
I've only seen them twice but both times it was very Cassadaga heavy and I didn't get on with that album at all.
but think when I saw them at shepards bush during cassadaga they played the calander hung itself, arienette, a song to pass the time, I wont ever be happy again, southern state, first day of my life, at the bottom of everything, false advertising, gold mine gutted but I may be merging the 2 shepards bush shows into one
hopefully it'll be awesome
Doors are 7.30, one support act, so Bright Eyes on at 9?
Scala shows tend to be headline at 9pm and out of the door by 11pm.
I'm going to call to clarify once the ticket office opens, so I will repost with the correct info.
not really vibed with the new album yet and haven't looked at any setlists so have no idea what they're playing in terms of old stuff but still proper excited :'D
Is there anywhere around the Scala that's decent to pick up a quick bite pre-show (but that's not McD's, Pret etc)?
Otherwise the rest of Kings Cross is pretty dire.
But reckoned it was worth asking, lest I be missing a gem...
I recommend the champagne bar inside the station. Nice seafood platter and a load of good fizz. But very cash intensive.
Pretty much opposite the venue but a bit hidden and does very good tapas that's pretty quick and not too pricey - good beer too
up the road does really good pub food if you have time.
I should be nice and battered and friendly by 7.30, so do come say hello, i'll be on my tod
Amazing set, great choice of songs, conor absolutely killed it, and he touched my hand. Beautiful stuff
we were just partying with Conor... actually maybe not he was sitting near us in the pub. Should of talked to him!
I was hoping to try and meet him but couldn't be arsed skulking around any longer. What a lovely man
Everyone in the crowd was on good form and the sound worked. I just feel they over sold the venue by 20/25%, still great night though and it makes me much more hyped for the RAH show.
it was like being 23 and miserable again.
seriously, though, the fucking crowd. there was an american girl behind me during Tim Kasher that just would NOT shut up, just talking inane shit. i eventually snapped when she starting talk about Conor Oberst owning sex toys and I told her, as politely as I could manage, that if she wished to talk to her friend there was a bar just up the stairs, and if not she should just shut up. apparently she was unaware of how her shrill nasal voice carried and decided to insult me when i turned back around, so i was far less polite the second time around. then during bright eyes a 6ft+ guy decided to push in front of me, talk and occasionally pogo with no relation to the music.
then i remembered why last year i basically stopped going to see bands in London.
something vague -> take it easy -> nothing gets crossed out? yes fucking PLEASE
and The Calendar Hung Itself!
has anyone got the full setlist?
I'm so excited for the RAH now, and I haven't even been able to listen to the new album yet...
for telling that american girl to shut up (I was the guy just in front of you in the shirt it seems). She was really really annoying, unbelievably annoying even during Kasher.
That tall guy was really annoying as well when he appeared.
Awesome gig though, really awesome. The Calendar hung itself was phenomenal.
As i seemed to be behind a guy who seemed to be the only person dancing in the venue. Given that he seemed to enjoy the Cassadaga/new songs the most, I can only assume his opinions and actions are invalid.
But despite being oversold (as per), a great set and a great gig.I'd have liked Make War, but you can't have everything...
But in general there were some really beautiful, absolutely silent moments, poison oak in particular. I was having a bit of a boogie at points, but nothing too annoying.
another reason why i hate other people at gigs.
I think next time someone 'shush's' someone, the rest of the crowd should join in support.

How can someone be so unaware of themselves! Also that oaf barging in half way was poor form. I'm quite tall but I always try and stand out of the way for most people and I certainly wouldn't dream of coming in halfway through a gig.
Apart from those two it was an incredible gig and I was amazed how animated Connor is on stage!
