Were awesome last time I saw them, excited for that.
new album is great.
They are doing a proper tour of sorts.
New album is great, and I was away last time they were here (April?)
(Sub Q: Is there any reason you use ticketweb and not wegottickets? No biggie, just curious, as most gigs of this size use wgt as it seems to be cheaper)
That Ticketweb have much better customer service.
People say the We Got Tickets is cheaper but it isn't really. For shows under £10 the difference is in pennies and Ticketweb can be cheaper.
Wegottickets would have been slightly cheaper here - thankfully the ticketweb charge is kept reasonable by the presence of a ``Box Office collection - £0.00`` option, as often they levy the same charge as for postal delivery which adds like £2 to a £7 ticket.
Don't know anything about customer service from the promoter angle, but as a customer I've never had a problem with any ticket agency across dozens and dozens and dozens of gigs.
Slim difference here anyway. Main thing: Roll on the 19th!
Don't have any problem with We Got Tickets just preffered Ticketweb. I would rather give my money to a smaller company really!
Ah well. Yep 19th is going to be awesome. Any thoughts on supports? Someone local and not too expensive....
They were incredible earlier this year.
Also, DiS's very own MIE is putting on Higuma on Nov 11 at Cafe Oto.
This pretty great sounding act Talvihorros to support.
Anyone seem him before?
Lovely guy and I reviewed his latest record (which is excellent) in my last column...not seen him live, but apparently it's doomier and heavier from what I've read.
Evan and Lisa are flying over especially from Berlin just for the show! Support is from the mesmerising luteist Jozef Van Wissem. Tickets are http://www.wegottickets.com/event/134560
Antony I put on Ben/Talvihorros in Manchester back in May, he was excellent, going to go far that boy! An excellent support choice!
Glad you have seen him. Liked his stuff when he emailed me and checked it out but haven't seen him live/ever heard of him really.
Tickets still avail.
I can confirm that I witnessed the funniest stage-diving moment ever, at a gig with a respectful and attentive audience, that ended with the aforementioned stage-diver landing flat on his face on the concrete floor.
The band had reached their max-volume 'drone' moment and this doom goon (who had been more 'into it' than anyone around me) casually walked up the stairs onto the stage, politely passed both band members, stood in the corner with the expression that can only be described as 'crazed' and launched himself wholeheartedly onto the floor.
He then got up, tried to start a mosh down the front near me and failed miserably. Fucking hilarious. An old guy then handed him his glasses from the floor and he took then, moshed a bit and vanished. I can only assume he was either ejected or had to go and be treated for concussion as he really did hit the floor hard.
Anyone else witness this or was it just me hallucinating?
I was there too. It was pretty out of the blue, though. How he thought it was going to work out I'm not really sure - it wasn't exactly a packed moshpit of people ready to absorb his fall...
definitely confirm that. That guy SHOULD NOT have gotten up after that! That must must must have hurt a lot. Maniac!
In fact I still am, as I haven't got any younger since Saturday. He was standing almost directly in front of me when he jumped. There just weren't enough people to break his fall. But he hit one or two on his way down and that probably slowed his descent a bit. He was, shall we say, built for comfort rather than speed and if he had landed directly on top of someone he could have done them a nasty injury.
Sorry for referring to you in that way, I thought you handled the situation well. I'm amazed no one tried to hit him or have him thrown out... were his glasses shattered?
So I can't take the credit for that. Nae worries, I know the years are catching up on me. His glasses weren't shattered - they all have plastic lenses these days. But they can be quite expensive so I thought he'd like them back. Hitting him would have been a bit redundant. I'm guessing it was the adrenalin rush of the moment that helped him get back on his feet. But he must have been in a lot of pain afterwards and I guess he left of his own accord.
if you're ever at a hip-hop night in Glasgow, look out for this guy.
The first one he completely misses the audience.
How is it even physically possible to stage dive to Barn Owl...
How was the gig other than that. Wished I had of known it was on.
Pretty full, attentive crowd, support a gooden. Winner overall.
Great night overall, they played a blinder. Thank goodness I took my earplugs with me, it was intense stuff.
The most ill-conceived stage dive in the history of music.
Amazing, amazing show though. Barn Owl were completely stunning. Could well be the best thing I've ever seen.
when they finished the dj whacked on chris isaak's 'wicked game'
it was amazing

Really enjoyed Flipper and Big Naturals the other week split (do not search Big Naturals on work internet).
The guy on the door may be taking the piss, what a hoot!
Barn Owl rool.
Tomorrow night, yeah, can't wait, esp since I missed some of their Supersonic set.
A-Sun Amissa support and they're really good too:
