The Skids and Big Country at the Glen Pavilion, Dunfermline 28.12.19 What a trip and what a privilege to get here tonight. Up from Poole as a Christmas treat to the home of The Skids and Big Country. I never thought I’d get up here, ever. My fourth Skids gig of 2019 and third Big …
Band of Skulls play an end of tour gig at Portsmouth Pyramids Centre, showcasing their first album from 2009, ‘Baby Darling Doll Face Honey’. My photos from 2017 Victorious Festival, on almost the same site, are included.
Having released their long awaited debut album ‘Silver Tongues’ earlier in 2019, and supported Idles on tour, tonight Crows play the Anvil, Bournmouth. Live music that the John Peel generation can still get excited about is not dead yet .
Some snapshots of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark playing live over a 34 year period….well I saw them once at the start of that 34 year period with no camera or phone and at their Bournemouth gig this week, where I took some photos – snapshots indeed.
This illustrates that gig night is not always all about the music. A lovely old venue with a bit of history, like the Islington Assembly Hall, in an area of diverse eateries, pubs and bars makes it all more of an adventure….but hey, it’s not every week you get the chance to see the elusive ‘My Vitriol’.
