Gigs of 2013, part three

Sunday, December 29th, 2013

Only three parts to my year's gigging. I missed a few gigs I would have liked to attend, but made it to others I may not have gone to. I think I've had a pretty good year of live music overall, but it may be getting more difficult to know ...

Gigs of 2013, part one

Sunday, April 14th, 2013

More gigs! Some familiar bands, some new, and a couple known for their recordings but being seen for the first time. It's a mixed bag. Toy, Charlie Boyer & the Voyeurs, Novella at the Scala There's been a buzz about Toy for a while, but I procrastinated long enough about going to ...

Music of 2012, part four

Sunday, February 17th, 2013

I was aiming to get this final review of my 2012 music purchases out for the end of January, in a bid to make it somewhat timely, but again have fallen behind schedule. That's okay, though, as January has been pretty dry and I don't have any new music to ...

Gigs of 2012, part three

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

My final set of gigs for the year had a busy month of November, which turned out to be not quite as busy as I expected, thanks to illness. I still managed to squeeze in a bunch of gigs, and had some good nights out. There were a couple of ...

Music of 2012, part two

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

I'm still late with reviewing the music I've bought this year, but here's my second collection of albums. There's more to come, once I get around to writing about it. Grimes is pushing out albums almost quicker than they can be pressed. Hot on the tail of Geidi Primes comes Visions, ...

Gigs of 2012, part two

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

More gigs! I can only get to gigs when bands I like are playing, or when I notice that bands are playing, but I'm still trying to get out when I can. I really need to make more notes on the night or day after, though. I think I assumed ...

Gigs of 2012, part one

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

I'm still getting to gigs, still with mixed results. Here are my experiences from the first gigs of the year. Wild Flag/Peggy Sue at Electric Ballroom Peggy Sue play first, and though seem pretty good initially they start to wear on me as the set continues. I'm not sure why at first, ...

Gigs of 2011, part three

Saturday, December 24th, 2011

I appear to have been to more gigs in the past couple of months than the whole year before. I am trying to get out more, which is kind of working. I am getting out of an evening and, for the most part, enjoying seeing live music, but the secondary ...

Gigs of 2011, part two

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

More gigs! I am trying to Get Out More and seeing live music has long been an activity I've enjoyed. It seems the obvious way for me to do something away from a computer, even if I end up seeing Bo Ningen a dozen times this year. They like to ...

Gigs of 2011, part one

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

I have been remiss in reviewing gigs I've been to for quite a while now. I have wanted to keep them timely and accurate, jotting down notes on my tube journey home to write a review the next day, but external pressures don't always make that possible, nor do I ...
