Playing town halls in small towns seems to be a thing in 2016. So when one of my favourite bands The Wedding Present announced they were playing my hometown then I’m there.
Let’s be honest the gig wasn’t exactly sold out but there was a good attendance for a Sunday night in a small town.
The setlist was a great blend of “greatest hits” mixed in with a few new ones off the new album “Going, Going”. Just before “Go Out and Get ‘Em Boy” the boy Gedge announces “This is one of the first songs I wrote….about 10 miles up the road from here”.

Surprisingly the acoustics in the town hall were pretty good. I’ve never seen a band here before and the only times I’ve been in the hall was to give blood so it was great to see a gig here.
