Live Musical Adventures In November

Frank Carter

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.

Have you been to any shows recently, or have anything coming up?

    I haven’t seen any shows in a very long time. We used to go all the time when we were in college. Maybe we should schedule to go to some in 2017.

    I haven’t been to any shows lately but I’m hoping that when the kids grow up a bit I’ll get a bit more freedom back and be able to watch more. I know there’s always a great atmosphere!

    It’s been such a long time since I went to see any live music, I think the last time was Bon Jovi’s ‘Lost Highway’ tour. Really wish I had the money and time, but hopefully we will get something organised next year! 🙂

    I have not been to any concerts lately, which is a shame, because here in Las Vegas are absolutely massive amounts of shows and concerts to go to. Just been too busy, oh well. I am glad you had such a great time, sounded like it at least. Blessings!

    Seeing farewell tours is always just…nice? There’s probably a better word but it’s like the swan song for parting ways…

    My best friend LOVES BMTH! I went to see Fifth Harmony back in October. I wouldn’t consider myself a fan, but when your friend is their European support act and hooks you up with tickets, not quite something you turn down! They were good though, to be fair. I have Olly Murs then in March and Little Mix on Halloween which is crazy that they put the tickets on sale over a year in advance, but I’m a big fan, so very much looking forward!

    I haven’t gone to any concerts lately, simply because I haven’t had the time for anything else besides work. So I’m a bit jealous of all the gigs you went too! I should start setting off time for it again 🙂

    I love gigs and concerts but never go see any for some reasons!
    Definitely adding it to my 2017 resolutions list 🙂

    I haven’t been to any shows recently. But I am due to go to a theatre in April with my friend to see Betroffenheit (Jonathon Young and Crystal Pite) – It’s meant to be heartbreaking. If you have a moment have a quick google as it came about after the death of Jonathons daughter a few years ago camping. I expect to be bawling during the show.

    It’s been ages since I’ve been to a live gig, the last one was Kate Bush, that said, I haven’t got a clue who any of these artists are, so out of touch!
