mogwai playing on the 27th april
i have an exam at 9:30 on the 28th.
this year matters
so do mogwai
tha night before one of my University exams. You'll be cool so long as you don't drink. In fact, it may even help you to relax/sleep before the exam, oh yes.
I had a postmodernism exam the morning after my 21st birthday, now that SUCKED. Oh, and Maths GCSE on my 16th birthday.
I think I win.
if only mogwai gigs helped me sleep.
in past experience i've been on such a high afterwards with songs still resonating in my head its been a nightmare to get to sleep :(
..cos Mogwai always help me get to sleep. They're boooooorrrriiinngg.
happening with Sleater Kinney in Bristol on 29th May, i think they look at gig listings and schedule exams for the days just after gigs they think students will attend
on the Sunday was the night before two of my A-Level exams at 9a.m. the morning after. Bastard didn't finish til gone half twelve, then we had to get my hammered mate sober enough to drive the width of the country back to Canterbury. Fecker kept falling asleep...truly the most terrifing night of my life. Still got two A's though, plus only shit myself twice. Result!!
Besides the obvious fact that Mogwai are truly magnificent live, relaxing the night before an exam is actively advised. As long as you've revised your arse off..safe as foook.
the rolling stones before a GCSE eglish exam and got an A. but that's GCSEs, innit?
I've got to say exams. I once had the choice of last night exam revision or Rage Against The Machine (about a month after Killing In The Name came out) and I decided to make the effort. If I hadn't I would have been screwed.
the day before my PHYSICS and History exams. I got an 87% in Physics and a 91% in History
Gigs before concerts are worth it. If you have studied beforehand. Or maybe I'm just supercool.
unless it's some sort of ridiculous cross-country trek to get there, in which case don't!!
I really don't think even getting fucking wasted the night before an exam matters - just as long as you know your stuff and you set your alarm there's very little that can stop you. But if you are generally crap at exams don't drink too much. But you have to go - even take your notes with you - that would be a very mogwai gig thing to do.
if you aren't drinking I think. Provided you've done work of course. I have been to two gigs the day before morning exams and had no problems.
Films on the other hand are bad. I went to see the Ray Charles film and had to resit the exam I did after that.
was 15 i was gonna see Coldplay at The Underworld before a Science GCSE but my mum wouldn't let me go. oh well.
I just sent you a note when i meant to press reply. Oh well, you know where my vote lies.
