No tickets yet, but I'll probably head to see Besnard Lakes and White Hills later this month although that's two week nights in a row.

Really unsure about Luke Haines - I used to love the Auteurs and I've enjoyed some of his solo records, but I haven't really listened to his recent LPs and I'm just not as interested as I may have been only a few years ago - but he only comes to Scotland maybe once every 10 years these days. On the other hand, tickets are the most expensive I've seen for that tiny venue... Difficult decision this one.

Slowdive - this Wednesday. Curious how much new material will be aired since the album isn't officially out yet.

Not sure I am at all interested in The Warlocks any longer. Their last LP was hopeless and they are a dubious live proposition at time. On the other hand I will be going to see BRMC as they have thus far evaded we for some reason I can't fathom out.... :?

I'm not actually a big fan of the Warlocks really. they are a pretty average psych band to me. still kinda want to tick them off the list though- never seen them

I've only seen BRMC twice myself, which is surprising as I've liked them right from the start. now they put on a really great live show. I might consider coming up North for that one actually (although the date near me is a Saturday night which makes it nice and easy)

tour dates have also been announced for Six Organs of Admittance (link below). not a huge spread of UK dates unfortunately!

lots of good bands touring this year!

Might go to the gig at the Komedia in Brighton. I've seen Durutti Column there at least twice and really liked the venue (even if it is just a swish comedy club). The alternative is the London date probably....

very good idea. nice small venue, the Komedia. might try and make that myself. Six Organs is one of my favourite artists and don't really want to miss it

Those twats are charging €130 for a meet and greet at their Dublin gig.

Whatever happened to my rock'n'roll indeed.

ha! well to be fair, you don't just get a meet and greet, you get other stuff like 'commemorative tour laminate' (?) and 'crowd free merch shopping' (yeah, because buying merch with other people around can be absolute murder!!)

yeah, kind of disappointing. it's more the kind of thing that a lame band like Metallica would do.

Quit moaning and get your wallet open sunray!!. TBF they have some pretty obsessive and dedicated fan`s whom I guess this aimed at, signed tour poster and laminate thingy? Probably not much change out of £40 there, £20 for your ticket so £50 to hang with the band an take in the sound check, wouldn`t pay it myself but its not too bad if your that way inclined is it?

I guess if people are willing to pay it then fair enough. Depends whether the meet and greet is actually hanging out or a quick handshake then they disappear back to the dressing room!

If Spiritualized did the same thing would you pay up?

I dunno, I think the whole thing is pretty disgusting really. It leaves a bad taste in the mouth and seems really expoitative and nasty to me. Just fucking go and meet your fans for a bit if you actually give a shit. If not don't charge people for the 'privilege' of spending time in your company.

As for BRMC themselves, I haven't seen them in about fifteen years. I gave up after the second album and tour when I decided they were just too pedestrian for me. A steady increase in ticket prices over the intervening years made sure I wouldn't go see them again when they were in town.

I wouldn't pay that either. F*cking capitalists. The word, " pedestrian " has been used quite often recently ...

Bit harsh on BRMC although appreciate not everyone's cup of tea. live they are fearsome and continue to excite me (and my mate Gaz whom I think has attended every tour since the the 1st album with me ) The last album i will concede was a little dull, I think they probably sussed this out and didn't play too much of it on the tour.
I will agree this meet and greet stuff is a rip off and I don't agree with it, BRMC have always been a band that has been approachable and connected with fans for years, so I see this a very underhand cash in

Anyhow forthcoming I have
Besnard Lakes (Liverpool), Kraftwerk (Manchester), Thee Oh sees (Manchester), Mark Lanegan (Manchester), Real estate (Manchester), Ride (Manchester)

A quiet and more selective gig going calender this year so far

I'm a bit busy for gigs all of a sudden. I'ld like to go to Bresnard Lakes on Tuesday which I may or may not be able to go to.

I've got freebies for the John Cale thing doing the VU and Nico LP in Liverpool on Friday. I saw the VU on their reunion tour. The London date was a train wreck of epic proportions which put me off listening to them for years. I'm dreading this gig for many reasons but mostly becuase the guests are Fat White Family, Wild Beasts, Gruff Rhys, Clinic and The Kills. I won't speculate as to why these guests are described as special...

After that it is Kraftwerk in Dublin with most of the folks I grew up with and then Kraftwerk at the Philharmonic in Liverpool. Luckily, I'm on the dry at the moment or before and after the Dublin date could be very, very messy

I can see why some might find BRMC pedestrian as they are definitely on the more commercial end of the spectrum but I think they do what they do really well and have a solid catalogue
The meet and greet thing is a bit strange as I've seen youtube vids of the band coming out after shows to mingle with fans and even play some acoustic tunes

As usual I'm sitting on the fence with it. I guess if people are willing to pay the money and they will really enjoy it.still a bit lame

Olan- yeah that's stretching the definition of special guests a little isn't it? Especially when you see the calibre he had for the equivalent show he did in the US

Got some tickets to see GAS in Brighton and since it's all ages I'm going to give my lad his first taste of live electronica!

Gives me a dilemma, though, because I already had a pair of good seats for his show at the Barbican the following evening... do I sell/return to save the hassle of a Sunday night trip to London or just go see him twice given that his live shows are rare as hens' teeth???

You sure about them not playing the last album much? The times I saw them they were playing 7/8 songs from it, then they recorded the whole album live for a live cd/dvd, like you said I think they`re pretty fearsome live an will be there for sure.

You are correct, the tour they played 7 or 8, it was 2 years after when they returned just to play a few shows (Albert hall Manchester), they played 2 or 3 (Let The Day begin and Rival being 2 of them)
