If you want any help, then I would advise that MGMT are good and Frank Turner is bad. :P

But seriously yeah I'm having to hold back from a lot for now myself too in terms of autumn gigs. I'm all over MGMT for sure though. 

Tricky one.  I've got a massive personal thing with FT's music so would be a bit emosh, but lurve MGMT's new album.

What would you say was bad about FT? Never seen him live so it's an unknown for me...

Frank is brilliant live. Seen him over a dozen times and only sub par once when he was mega hungover and he kind of let it come across. Not sure how well his new stuff will work though.

So I now have £30 lucky dip tix to this thanks to yer man dentalplan. 5 days til I'm seeing The Rolling Stones for the first time yikes.

You should have a great time, but bear in mind that when i first saw them back in 1976 when i was 16 i thought that they were old and past it then! Non the less 42 years later i'm off to see them again.

Got a gig with in my mind a weird (but good) line up in Bournemouth on Monday - Beck supported by Sparks, supported by Shame.

Managed to get both Cowboy Junkies and Parquet Courts this morning for two consecutive days in November. Over the moon with that, especially the Cowboy Junkies

His music just isn't my thing I was only joking, I've only heard good things about him live from people who like him.

I suspected your answer was tongue in cheek, but always worth checking these things!

Haha I've seen enough recent live footage to know what to expect going in so thankfully I'm not gonna not gonna be shocked and hopefully won't think the same.

I think this is a very fair point. His delivery wouldn't be to everyone's taste but live his music carries far more emphasis and emotion. It'll probably sound 'even worse' to those who don't like him.

Y'all be making a strong case for Frank.  It's just hauling myself from near Worthing up to Ally Pally on a Sunday night that's putting me off now :D

Bit annoying it's not at the Deaf Inst tbh, I really love it there. Albert Hall is really good obviously, but it seems like every gig I go to is in there, and it can be difficult to get a good spot sometimes, as well as the bars being kinda shite and the 1 million years it takes to leave.

Young Fathers are playing round our way as well, tremendous news. Been quite a week for gig announcements in the North East.

Over the past week I've booked Julie Byrne, Power Trip, Parquet Courts and Young Fathers which is a nice variety of acts, and got Unknown Mortal Orchestra/Deerhunter/Black Lips tonight which should be great.

Had a flurry myself over the last week, Beautiful Days, The Magic Gang, Chainska Brassika and First Aid Kit. Still dithering over Frank Turner and/or MGMT

Where’s the Young Fathers gig? I thought they only had festivals left this year.

Very happy to hear Hop Along are supporting The Decemberists at all the UK November dates.  Their album has been one of my favourites of the year so far.
