Glasvegas and White Lies



Went back to see Glasvegas last night, this time in Wolverhampton. They were supported by this band White Lies, who were pretty awesome and got a great reception from the crowd.

I enjoyed Glasvegas more this time round. Pretty much the same songlist as Sheffield but with the addition of the new single "A Snowflake fell (and it felt like a kiss)" and the winner of the most cryptic song title of the decade "Fuck you, it's over" I nearly didn't recognize James Allan without his shades but he maybe felt he could do without them in Wolverhampton in December.

So what made this gig better than last time ? A mixture of things, I guess, there was a good crowd, plenty of beer getting thrown in the air, lots of moshing, people just seemed to be enjoying it more and there were more of us, the band seemed to be into it more too. Encores as well, there was a really brilliant bit where during the last song " Daddy's gone", the band left the stage and left us singing the " He's gone" refrain, a good moment to be part of. Fabulous support act in the White Lies, I'll go and see then again and an important point...

Starting time ?

9.45pm

Now that's what I call rock and roll. Primal Scream ? Would you give yourself peace !

Primal Scream were clearly giving themselves peace which is why they were only on for an hour, very early. Please if you ever meet them will you just say that to them and walk off? It's fab.

Cool...and how funny I bought the glasvegas CD yesterday; this was a special edition that comes with a couple of Christmas carols (and A Snowflake fell). Glasvegas singing Silent night, Holy night is pretty good...

9.45...at least someone knows the proper time to start a gig
