Belfast Empire Music Hall - Oct 12th
Manchester Academy 2 - Oct 15th
More to follow, obviously.
I'll get to see them more than the 7 times I'm already seeing them this year. On the last couple of tours they did Leeds and they did Brighton in 2009 and 2010 (may be a bit close to Camber Sands for this year though). I'd like to see Glasgow and Liverpool dates as well as London.
never saw them before, more and more gig lists im seeing without glasgow included *shakes fist*
But I'm not holding my breath on that one
There's at least one date in Dublin, more to follow.
no Microcastle material
one/two songs apiece from Cryptograms / Halcyon
7-8 from Monomania
Microcastle in full
Cryptograms in full
HD in full
I hope newJosh can drive NEH and Octet like oldJosh
If they can rustle up any spare 2-berths I might go to that ATP - plus it's in June, so best chance of decent weather ever.
as they did with TIUF
I do like Monomania, but wouldn't mind them mixing it up *if* they come to London...
it's Microcastle they're done with... I guess the noise and roughness of Cryptograms' more raucous bits sit pretty well with Monomania.
I think Cox's problems with TIUF are pretty long lasting and deep rooted, I certainly don't think he's got a problem with Microcastle etc. And this is all based on a handful of shows with pretty short setlists.
bands usually focus on the newest record.
(and as pointed out downthread, that's a short set altogether)
really enjoyed them at ATP and was looking forward to seeing them again
Hope their families are okay.
to both points :(
I am having a rubbish week this week, might as well add no Deerhunter to the list.
who are suggesting its due to the poor ticket sales and ATP owing certain parties, this is completely UNTRUE
and deployed it at a more opportune moment tbh
I heard it's because of poor ticket sales and, well, we know that qwimwal are in a fair amount of debt, I wouldn't be suprised if they pulled it.
yes, the promoter of one show definitely has the power to cancel a band's whole european tour. well done.
I know one date isn't the whole tour but they'd already sold Brighton out, which was quite a feat considering half of Brighton saw them 3 times at ATP only 3 months ago.
I actually had tickets for this, that said I hope it's not too serious for the band members affected.
Second Concorde 2 gig (Modest Mouse) cancelled this year, both cases where I feel it's unlikely I'll have the opportunity to see them in such a small venue.
Hope all is well with B. Cox and co. though.
I'd say there's a good shout they'll play there again.
"I feel it's unlikely I'll have the opportunity to see them in such a small venue."
The Concorde has been 2/3rds full for their last 2 shows in Brighton and I'm being charitable there.
However, I hope the band and family are all ok and hope it's positive family news like their wives are preggers or something. Still, I've seen them at ATP and Primavera this year so can't complain.
