Getting back in the game…

March 1, 2012

Here we are on the 1st of March (Happy St David’s Day everyone) and I’ve only been to a handul of gigs this year. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME? I realised a few months ago I need to get back in the game, and for months there has only been one gig I’ve really wanted to go to. Being the same night as the Gary Speed tribute match between Wales and Costa Rica – I still can’t believe I’m saying that-  it was a tough decision. I’ve not really been to a Wales match for a few years, after 20 years of attending I really started feeling uncomfortable in the crowd at some of the matches, but I really thought hard about this game. In the end, due to various circumstances, I went to see Allo Darlin’.

I’ve known of them for a few years now, but it was only about 2 years ago that I first saw them. I didn’t really think I’d like their music, going by their name, so when I did see them and found out they were actually brilliant, I felt a bit stupid.  I still didn’t get round to buying their first album until about six months ago, and it’s only really been the last couple of months that I haven’t been able to stop listening to it, particularly My Heart Is a Drummer.  Last night saw them play lots of great new songs mixed in with lots from the first album, and a Just Joans cover.

Great support from Tigercats and This Many Boyfriends ensured the night got off to a good start. Sorry, I’m no gig reviewer. Most feel good gig I’ve been to in ages. Here are some photos.
