What a fucking incredible gig! Utterly euphoric.
Great to see so many folk dressing up and making the effort!
they were superb. the new album comes across really well live - really loose and fun and Talking Heads-y with all the additional percussion.
Plus, it was really nice to see a crowd totally into a band playing a set of 75% brand new material.
I feel kind of sad now because its all over but that's one of the best gigs I've been to and will stay with me forever! :)
possibly the best atmosphere at a gig ive ever had? although that may just be because it was my first 'saturday night at the barrowlands' or whatever. brilliant venue.
the dressing up was actually a pretty nice touch and the dj before killed it, i was pretty near the front and everyone around me lost their shit when they played rock the casbah.
ive seen AF plenty of times, first one when i was 13 at st johns smith square and this was easily the best ive ever seen them, even if it was a relatively short set and mostly new material. the haiti into sprawl 2 segue was a highlight id say, and the ramones cover. of the new stuff, you already know, its never over and everyone going crazy for afterlife were real standouts. really really really really really fun and i cant wait for primavera
I've been to fucking loads of gigs at the barras and loads on a sat night gigs, the atmosphere was as good as anything I've experienced there!
The fact that everybody made and effort to dress up was great! Before a note was played I turned to my brother and said 'tonight's gonna be special, there's something in the air and everyone is right up for this!'
Absolutely loved it and haven't shut up all today about it!
That's a great first ever sat night at the barras to go to, here's to so many more! :)
