    Nick Cave

    they were incredible. got there for doors and was right down the front which was so worth it, it's my first time seeing them so I didn't know he'd interact with the crowd that much. Like others have said, I loved the new songs (especially distant sky and skeleton tree to close out the main set) and the rest of the set list was perfectly judged for the arena. absolutely one of my favourite ever gigs, I'm glad most others seem to agree. I doubt it will happen but I really think he could pull of a pyramid headline slot.

    it took a while to get going last night I think even tho I thought the new tracks sounded ace. England was the first one to get all the crowd singing properly, then they dropped off a bit again but I think I need my girl onwards was amazing and everyone else around me seemed to love it too. Secret fuckin meeting! I was happy with the oldies we got, even Lucky You was surprisingly well received down the front. Vanderlyle to end was excellent. didnt change my opinion on this is the kit, but I felt a bit sorry for them having to contend with the noise of the room.

    Fuckin alligator is so good, every single track bags. Would love it if they brought out geese of Beverly road/val jester/friend of mine in London as a surprise.

    Listened about 5 times now and it's grown on each listen. First time I enjoyed all the way through but didn't really grab me in the same way alligator/boxer/twfm did on first listen. Since then tracks I wasn't too bothered about in the first place (empire line, walk it back, born to beg) have all made a big impression. I like that, despite the more electronic approach, the songs are still all trademark National sounding. Matt seems the same as ever, but I'm yet to delve into the lyrical content fully. Its great, and that makes it 5 great albums in a row - they're the most consistent band atm in my eyes. P.s System till bangs every single time even after having played it upwards of 20 times when it came out, one of their very best imo.

    The card was actually pretty good, I thought. Disappointing main event tho. really looking forward to seeing Tony back in the cage next month.

    Must say, the album sounded excellent - really excited to hear the studio version now! i'd be happy with a fair amount of the new tunes going off that recording. Carin at the liquor store sounded beeeeautiful

    Yeah it was the mountain one, not a bad arena but the chair crowd are possibly worse than at the pyramid. The band were ok but probably a difficult spot for them.

    I thought they were pretty boring at green man but I'll be watching again in London to get a good spot for the national

    Arcade Fire

    Some absolute trash on here, but some tracks are great, so as long as they are selective with their live picks I'm not too bothered. Bagged manc tickets this morning so ready for round 5! P.s wtf is Peter Pan?

    Think a couple people I know we're surprised, having only heard the likes of I Need My Girl & I Should Live in Salt, when they played stuff like Mr November. Glowing reviews all round though!
