So, based on the GnR thread it appears that there are quite a few of us with more than a passing interest in music. Thought it might be quite fun to start an ongoing thread of upcoming gigs people are going to and what they thought of them. All genres welcome, all sizes of bands and venues from those starting out in a back room dive through to stadium headliners. To start off, i went to see Chvrches at the Glasgow Hydro lastnight. For those that dont know, Chvrches are a Glasgow band who are really making it big across the world now. A bit of synth pop and they do a good job of managing commercial success but staying credible. Really, its driven by the lead singer (lauren mayberrys) vocals and charisma. So lastnight was a homecoming for them and their biggest gig in the city to date selling out the biggest arena in the country. Total success, they had the place absolutly bouncing. The light and strobe show was quality and Mayberry really knows how to work a crowd. Probably the best gig i've been to for a few years. Upcoming, going to see Biffy Clyro in a few months. Tempted to check out Idlewild in the summer but not sure how well theyv aged.
