  1. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Really wanna go to this but it's not really gonna be doable the day after I see The Killers in Glasgow. Never mind. Edit: just seen the full lineup is out for anyone interested: https://www.somersethouse.org.uk/whats-on/somerset-house-summer-series
  2. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Prices for Lorde's tour were insane in the US from what I saw. They were nearly £40 here which was on the high end but I think they were circa double that for Americans. Run The Jewels was a bizarre choice of support too so I doubt that helped. We got Khaled over here. Although I'd much rather see RTJ, in terms of a Lorde support act it's clear who the better choice is.
  3. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Got a lot of time for this. I'd happily see them again at a festival, but can't see any of the majors wanting them, and even yr Kendal Callings and Y Nots etc are gonna be offering slots about 3rd down main at this point I reckon. It'll all be a bit sad. Maybe this Silent Alarm stuff will boost their profile up a bit but can't really see it.

    I'm not arsed about the quote either, just found it a bit funny. But at least Interpol could dress it up as the 15 year anniversary tour as a "reason" to do it. This is literally the "nobody will come and see us again if we don't promise to play old stuff" tour. I've seen this Bloc Party lineup a few times now and I don't think I'm gonna forgive them for playing about 70 minutes in Manchester last February, and then playing 3 songs extra in London a few nights later. I saw Kele in October too and he did like an hour, if that. It's like he thinks "hmmm, what's the absolute shortest set I could get away with playing here?" beforehand. Embarrassed to say I was so desperate to like Hymns that I had myself convinced it was pretty good for a while. God there is some absolute dross on there. Hopefully they wrap it up after this tour and finish for good, or come back with the proper band in a few years.
  5. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    “I don’t think that sort of thing does much good for artists. I always cringe a little bit when you hear about bands going around just touring on a kind of anniversary record. I feel that it just seems a little bit cynical.” - Kele Okereke Silent Alarm is one of my favourite albums of all time, but a tour for it without it even being an anniversary and with half the original band is kinda tragic. I'll still have a quick look at how much it costs to get to Brussels later.
  6. LCD Soundsystem....

    Check your order details on the ticket website you ordered off, and it should say if they've been despatched or not. It's not at all unusual for them to not have been sent out yet this far in advance.

    Saw DFA at Glasto 2k15 and thought they were pretty meh, but prob cos I was too hyped for Kanye to appreciate anything that wasn't Kanye. Tonight they were good though and I think I only recognised Nomad. At The Drive-In were siiiiickkk. Obviously. One of my favourite sets ever. Especially Napoleon Solo, Invalid Litter Dept and 198d.

    Oh man, even better if they're potentially in Europe this summer. Didn't really consider that as a possibility with a reunion announced in mid March.
  9. 2018 New Music

    New Black Peaks track Can't Sleep is worth a listen if you're into yr heavier stuff. Doesn't sound that much different from their first album so check that out if you like what you hear. Not really a good thread to mention this so I'll tack it on the end here, but someone on /r/indieheads has said The Rapture could be getting back together and we should know for sure this week. I really hope that's true.

    The new Editors album has one or two duds but I'm pretty happy with it overall. Would have been nice to hear it before the gig on Monday but never mind. Gengahr's album sounds good on first listen, can't tell yet if it's as good as their brilliant debut but I'm keen to go back to it. Defo check these guys out if you don't know them. New David Byrne is enjoyable too.The album is only 37 minutes long so plenty of room for Talking Heads songs to go alongside the new stuff on the setlist too, really looking forward to seeing him. I've just seen he's ending his gigs on a Janelle Monae song (Hell You Talmbout), thought that might be of interest to some of you.

    Nice, good luck. I'd be looking at megabuses myself but ATDI are here that night. I think you'll get tickets easily enough tbh; it's not like he's that big a deal and it's a very short time between the gig being announced and tickets becoming available so a lot of people probably won't have heard about it.
  12. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    A booking fee on a free gig seems unlikely to me so hopefully you won't have to use a card... I think you'd probably be ok even if you did end up double booking in your name if you got in touch and explained what happened and asked them to cancel one. But yeah you don't wanna go to London unless you know for sure you're getting in. Is it not possible for one of you and your friend to try in your name, and the other of you try to get a pair in the name of whoever you're going with? Or phone up your mate as you're both trying to get tickets so you can hear how the other is getting on and not end up booking twice? Probably no good if one of you is in work though.
  13. 2019 Stage Predictions

    Yeah who knows what this new album will do for her. And I didn't (and still don't) think Beck should have been a sub so maybe I'll be wrong about how this pans out too. No he's listed 3rd at Bilbao BBK after Alt-J surprisingly. After he was announced for Lovebox I was hoping for him as the last headliner there so it caught me off guard a bit seeing him get that slot.
  14. 2019 Stage Predictions

    But Janelle Monae would? Is she even as big as him? I don't really know tbh but I didn't think she was near that level. Also please can people put Caribou up against the shit headliners. Thanks.
  15. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    There's screens all over the stage behind them with cool visuals that are really different for each song, and the fact it's a few little screens rather than one big one makes it look great. The band have a good stage presence and the three backing singers/dancers/tambourine players they have are pretty quirky and fun to watch. fin(n) sums it up nicely above too. It was a short set of course considering they have one 33-minute-long album but you could tell a lot of effort went into making it as interesting as possible. Everyone there tonight seemed to really enjoy it as did the band themselves. I hope they're in for big things.
