***GIG OF THE WEEK***
@ MEN Arena ... Foo Fighters & Cave In
The gig of the week is arena sized and there is no doubting it's relevance in the rock world.
The Foo Fighters are the biggest straight-assed rock band around at the moment and with Grohly leaving his other band behind you can be assured of another truly rocking show FooFighters.com
You will struggle to call Cave In any one thing: they used to be a hardcore band, so post-hardcore, right? They're all emo, but prog rock too and still know how to squeal. I'd love to see the Foos upstaged by their crazy support band but I fear the love is too great CaveIn.net
@ Manchester Uni ... Division of Laura Lee et al ... it's a punky hardcore extravaganza
S u n d a y - N o v 1 7
@ Manchester Uni ... Aqualung ... it's "that song from an advert" played all softly and tender-jazz like
@ Manchester Uni ... The Levellers ... crusty rockers erm...rock
@ Manchester Uni ... Our Lady Peace ... N.American stadium rockers arrive to rock rather more intimately
M o n d a y - N o v 1 8
@ Manchester Uni ... InMe ... they're nu-grunge and the kidz love em and I think they're fair kop too, so there!
@ Manchester Uni ... [spunge] ... skank!!! AND skank!!!
Damn it's another slow week. But that will, hopefully, keep you going for this week!
See you soon
