One of e best gigs I have e privilege to check out. Amazing and so cool. I am so high!!! This is way better than last nite's Cranberries. The diff is that Warpaint knows how to change up their tunes and present em in a refreshing way but e Cranberries was basically doing e exact same arrangement as their album tunes. I will definitely be following Warpaint's career closely

B I L L I E H O L I D A Yyyyyy.... (they) got me in their UNDERTOW.... \m/00\m/

I couldn't make it to Warpaint's gig (but I've caught them twice before now, so no huge loss)...I totally agree about the Cranberries, Dolores' vocals were spectacular, but the overall gig was such a yawn, and her bandmates were mostly asleep.

Just caught Suede this evening... Bloody brilliant!!!

You'll never get to heaven with a smile on your face from me.

Suede was brilliant!! When Brett came right in front of us singing By The Sea... priceless!
And I have got a video of that :)
Great setlist as well, classic songs, So Young, Metal Mickey, To the Birds, Animal Nitrate, Wild Ones, New Generation, Killing Of A Flashboy.
Newer songs, Everything Will Flow, Filmstar, She, Can;t get Enough, Saturday Night.

Great night! Thank You Suede.

Wow!! Good for u!! I only discovered this band this year thru High Violet which is a frickkin' masterpiece

On another note - last week I watched Win Win at GV Europa and e singer's voice in e theme song that ran with e ending credits sounded strangely familiar... Took me awhile to realize it was e lead singer of The National!!! I cried out as if I had won e Toto

Yeah Boxer a great album, High Violet top it for them. Previously I bought Cat 1 seats, and they cancelled.
So this time round decided to chill and bought Cat 3 tix at $75. Mosaic 10% off. haha Shiok. cheap and good. I will be on level 2.
Wasted they are not doing any signing after the show. 6 Nov still long way to go.

I heard from a friend Lykke Li is coming in Sept? For real?

Two Door Cinema Club - what a high energy gig. This is my first rock-pop concert at Esplanade. This is a superb venue... a million times better than e Indoor Stadium.



Queued up 45min for e dudes' autographs. Once again, me and my missus are e most matured looking fans. Very soon I will have to think twice abt checking out certain gigs LOL

How was 2 door show? Looking at the pic, great turnout.
And a bonus when the band do the after show meet n greet.
