DiS brings you the first in a series of exclusive video blogs from the Northern Alliance Tour featuring Rolo Tomassi, Grammatics and Pulled Apart By Horses, a little later than originally scheduled.
Your narrator, James Brown from Pulled Apart By Horses, had a few problems with his leg - he was hospitalised shortly before the tour, and his band missed the first few dates (and filming opportunities) as a result. Thankfully, he's feeling better now.
We join the bands in Liverpool for the first instalment - those of a nervous disposition, or with an aversion to seeing topless, sweaty indie boys, should think carefully before hitting 'Play'.
The dates for this tour are as follows:
14 Leicester The Musician
15 Sheffield The Plug
16 Wrexham Central Station
17 Nottingham Bodega Social
18 Manchester Satans Hollow
19 Leeds The Faversham (no Grammatics)
20 Middlesborough Uncle Alberts
21 Liverpool Barfly
22 Glasgow Stereo
28 Bristol Croft
29 Cardiff Barfly
30 Exeter Cavern (no Pulled Apart By Horses)
1 Bournemouth Gander
3 Southampton Joiners
4 Oxford Academy 3
