The beginning of this month pretty much belonged to my fav’s with a trip to Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena, London’s O2 Arena and Sheffield’s Arena to see Bring Me The Horizon. Other than saying I had a great time and the shows were amazing I won’t harp too much on about them as I wrote a whole post about the shows here.
On Thursday 10th I headed to Camden’s Electric Ballroom to see Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes. I was a huge Gallows fan, especially as Frank and the band were local to me so I’d see them down the shitty pubs in Watford, but I truly think the rattlesnakes is the best musical venture Frank has taken. The show was pure and utter chaos and showed me how incredible punk shows can be. Frank is possibly one of the great frontmen around at the moment as he’s angry, ballsy and chaotic but also respectful, humble and passionate. So many times he made comments on making people feel safe, respecting women and not talking down to those with disabilities pushing the message of love and not anger. Everything about this show was incredible.
On Friday 25th I headed to the Garage in London which is strangely a venue I’ve not been to in a while. I was there for the London farewell show of Yashin. This is a band who have been a big part of my life for the past 10 years’ and I still can’t over the fact that I won’t see them again. The night was great and they played such a collection of tracks including some older ones which I love, and they even invited the original vocalist out to sing some of the tracks which was a nice mixture.
My final show of the month was on Sunday 27th and was to see Letlive. and Pierce The Veil. Letlive. are a band I haven’t really seen a huge amount of other than knowing their lead singer Jason Butler is A one of the nicest guys in the industry but B is mental live. Their set was insane with him plunging into the crowd and going crazy. Pierce the Veil were amazing and their new album sounded so good live and when they did a track with Jason it was such a magical moment.
