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.

Here’s one I posted on the Burning Up Time forums which I stumbled upon – Don’t think Savages had played many gigs at this point and I also don’t think they had any material out.
It’s not very often I’d drag myself along to a gig for a band that I know fewer than 3 songs for (which is not as bad as it sounds as the band have yet to release their first album). But last night I’m glad I did.
First up support band NZCA Lines. Not a bad slab of electro pop. Every song seemed to start off pretty interesting and showed promised but then it just washed over me. I need to give them another go I think. Also, I thought Charlotte Hatherley was in this band but she was no where to be seen.
I was at this gig – Don’t remember much about it thanks to my good friend alcohol!
First gig of 2016 for me and back to a place I hadn’t been to for almost 20 years. Leeds Met Uni bar. Used to go to “Stomp” nights there in the 90s as a student. No real cause to go back since, well except for this evening.
