Gig season hits again!!
« on: July 08, 2011, 10:52 »
Couple of nice ones coming up; Neon Trees, Cranberries, Warpaint, Suede, Two Door Cinema Club, James Blunt... Gonna try and make it to all of them (except Blunt, I'm not a fan  ;) ).  Anyone else planning to be at any?

Hi-jacking this thread to share with all few pics from my iPhone at The Esplande about 2 months ago. The Esplande by far is still the venue of choice for concerts although it is not a very rock and roll place. More thoughts via my blog http://www.hi-infidelity.com/html/more_blog.html

Aug is concert month - me and wifey be checking out: Cranberries on e 1st, Warpaint on e 2nd (taking leave!!), Two Door Cinema Club on e 11th and Jackie Cheung on e 27th!!

Actually, the reason I made e decision for Cranberries and Warpaint was becoz my CDs of theirs arrived yest.  I have always enjoyed Warpaint's Undertow and Billie Holiday on mp3 but the moment the songs were played on CDs, I was blown away.  Gotta check em out LIVE!!!  Cranberries was becoz years ago, me and pals were supposed to check em out but the concert was cancelled... gotta fulfill that dream!!!  Now I am POK KAI already... gotta go slow on my media shopping  :-[

Yeh!! The National on e 6 Nov, a Monday nite!! Previously, I wasn't a fan. Then I tried listening to High Violet and it turned out to be one of my fave albums this year. By e time I wanted to check out their concert, I found out it's a Tues nite which is a work nite...  :'( Then it was cancelled  >:( and now on a Mon nite  ;D

You believe in Fate?  Now I do!!!  ;)

Edit- just re-read my post and it sounded like I actually didn't mind The National cancelled their first concert due to e Japan earthquake. That's certainly not true. Just glad I have a chance to see em now

...and what a concert it was. JB's singing has improved since his royal albert hall concert from 2 years ago. and yes, acoustically, the esplanade is still the venue to beat! loud but no overhang.
