What the shit.
When did the listings part of this site get so crap? Is anyone actually running this section?
it was never going to be as comprehensive as something like last.fm anyway
It used to be that you'd get at least a selection of utterly shit electro-indie to choose from any night of the week, plus whatever overrated prestige act was currently filling 30 dates at one of London's air hangar venues.
Now I get to choose between seeing The Dodos (hu?) on Thursday and fucking myself.
You're right though; I should have gone straight to Last.fm
Presumably this was phase 28347/30 and seen as a lower priority than Facebook Connect, Radar and twittering everyone to death.
Michael Jackson is still in town. Perhaps you could score tickets to see him?
Tomorrow at the Camden Head:
TEN CITY NATION
My First Tooth
Club Fandango @ 229, Great Portland Street
You should all move to Sturminster Newton
maybe that stopped. hopefully. not the best way to run a listings system really.
It's Well Annoying
That is Title Case. Grammar doesn't give a shit about what some mere furriner finds annoying.
I'm sorry, that's your mum's job.
...I don't know. Will you?
not that i've got a ticket yet, or they don't seem to be selling actual tickets. *shrug*
It shouldn't surprise you to find that I forgot all about that - even though I was discussing that very gig with someone as recently as 4 days ago.
I will be there though. Assuming of course, that they start selling actual tickets...
Come to the Jesu one!
I *was* very tempted to Jag MY BAND'S GIG ON FRIDAY, but instead I'll confine myself to agreeing with you.
Indeed, there is bugger all on the listings - I always used to check them when I first started using DiS, but it's got gradually worse to point where I don't even check them anymore
Next Pocus Gig on Sat 12th Sept in Stockwell
Just a quick message to tell you we're playing the Grosvenor in Stockwell on Sat 12th September. It should be a great show. See the details below.
12th September 2009 - 7pm
Venue: The Grosvenor, Stockwell, 17 Sidney Road, SW9 0TP
Promoters Rotten Luck are putting this one on. We're playing with some bands we like and some bands we don't know but are sure to like them:
Chickenhawk (Album Launch)
Stockwell though *spits*
chickenhawk=wireless guitars in the tiniest pubs in england (??)
it takes Very Good Things to get my arse to Stockwell.
and make your choice.
Grosvenor's a brilliant place though and it ain't hard to get to.
silent front are fucking good!!!
well, did I?
bit 90s yeh?
that's a bit uncalled for, bitch!
they sound a bit 90s...
I just realised what my post could have meant...
we have to rely on you and theo if last.fm breaks?!
That chickenhawk band ALWAYS seem to be playing soemwhere
but that may just be the north
because in the last month they've sent me ELEVEN QUINTILLION requests to stream their album.
unless you concede to each demand and listen to it ELEVEN QUINTILLION times
to agonize over attending the most twee fest this side of the Summer and watching defribs ;)
that's nothing compared to the Indietracks vs Supersonic clash that came up in July.
and there were quite a few people moaning about that..but they were goths..so maybe it makes a little sense
There were a few people there who were trying to demonstrate that they didn't just listen to bands who sound like the Field Mice, but he was the winner. He also had the worst bowlcut I've ever seen.
somoene else posted when I couldn't earlier
and really excited about seeing Fuck Buttons who were on at the same time.
Plus I've been blitzing Dopesmoker for the past few weeks and it's awesome.
sorry, I'm a bit stoned.
It's just the way they are.
If you aren't going to Offset Hey Colossus are playing this sat
my state at ATP on friday night was very much 'sorry'.
Were they crap in December as well?
They just look sooooo bored on stage.
not even stoned..
if they were STONED on stage maybe I'd dig it...
but they were bored and boring
ah, maybe not worth my dollar then.
I'm putting on Dorian Gay, Bill Shatnerrr and Koresh!!!
where is this?
cementimental are also playing!. Other bands TBC.
Cable street is not the obvious place for sweaty hc and sludge but the soundguy is the best one I've ever met so I'm holding it there
can't believe they're selling out by doing a gig in an actual venue
skull hazard, gum takes tooth and dethscalator.
offset clash :(
I think he said that Flipper wanted their songs back.
amrepy/t+G style noise rock
there are other bands I never heard of...I thinks this is some kind of alldayer/fest
Where's that happening?
There are more bands I haven't heard of too
... ruddy hell!
