  1. Leaving aside the musical merits of SLAVES (the capitals seem important) for now, I just wanted to say that despite their rapid ascent they still seem top blokes. As I mentioned on another thread, my 15 year old daughter is trying to get into gig promoting and chanced her arm about 4/5 months ago (just after we saw them support Jamie T) by writing to them directly and asking them to play a gig for her.

    To her (and my) amazement they wrote back directly saying they'd try and make it happen because they liked her attitude. After a bit of back and forth with their manager/tour team, they have given her their Glastonbury warm-up show and are coming playing the pub at the end of our road on Thursday 25th June. We're only covering their costs and they haven't made any particular demands - even letting my two younger children (and a bunch of their mates) who love the band but aren't allowed in the gig come along to the soundcheck.

    Given how they've blown up since they agreed to play, the 180 tickets sold out in minutes and she has been flooded with demand for tickets. Should be a great night.

    Ironically, her next gig looks like it could be Drenge!


  2. Slaves are playing a warm-up gig on the Thursday in Cambridge unfortunately

    This gig in Cambridge is being promoted by my 15 year old daughter! She put her first gig on in January (The Bulletproof Bomb from South London), which sold out, and the local paper did an article on her where she said her dream band to promote would be Slaves.

    She sent them the article and cheekily asked whether they'd be up for it and to all our amazement they said yes. They are playing for a fraction of their normal fee and have even agreed to play at the local pub venue (200 capacity) rather than the bigger 'proper' venue they could have sold out.

    Tickets went on sale last night and sold out within 4 hours and my daughter is in dreamland! They really are top blokes.

    Sorry to keep them away from Williams Green though :-)


  3. I am lucky enough to have been offered some 'VIP' tickets to Latitude through work. I'm told they do not include camping so wondered whether they therefore 'just' provide free entrance (I know, I know, that is still good!). I am a Glasto regular, including 'VIP' some years, but have no idea what to expect at Latitude. I am taking the wife and 3 young kids so would appreciate it if anybody could fill me in on any 'perks' I can expect?


  4. I'm pretty sure it said exactly this last year too and we ended up the 'right' side of the divide. Somebody with more technical skills/time than me can probably check!

    From BBC just now:

    I think this is good, but not sure.

  11. But why would FLC be a 'special guest'? Why not just have them on the bill? Don't get me wrong, I love them and have enjoyed two great shows by them at Glastonbury but would they also still be classifed as 'potential headliners'?

    I'm still raw from the whole Hot Rats experience - choosing to miss someone good elsewhere (Fleet Foxes I think) in the hope of a cracking surprise only for two of Supergrass to come out and play some Karoake numbers!

    Sadly its likely to be Fat Freddys Drop or KT Tunstall or Cast or something like that!

    Personally, I'd love Emily to use the opportunity of having loads of people turning up to showcase something new - Wu Lyf or OFWGKTA.

    Or the FLK of course :ph34r:
