Gigeths!

Hello,
we've been gigging, not posting, so here we go...
HOCKEY - MAY 13th, EASTNEY CELLARS.
We know it was a while ago, but we promised you a post and we dont like to disappoint (too much)
It was a good experience, as Cellars was probably the smallest venue that Hockey will play. It sold out, so it was packed, good atmosphere. Brighton/London foursome Flashguns provided support. Their frontman was ill, but still put on a good show. The crowd seemed to react well. Set consisted mostly of new tracks, we were hoping for some RO SHAMBO and PANAMA though, we considered shouting, but chickened out.
Next came the Portland, Oregon based band Hockey. They've already supported the likes of Friendly Fires and played festivals such as Glastonbury (John Peel stage) and T in the Park. They played recent singles 'Too Fake', 'Learn To Lose' and crowd favourite 'Song Away'. Benjamin Grubin donned a harmonica and acoustic guitar for a country-style song which we can't remember the name of! Hockey were chatting in between songs, and mentioned the strange place names we have in England. 'We like Ports-MOUTH...' then this lady chipped in, taking the mickey, asking, 'hmmm, do you like READing, hav you ever to been to READing?'
please note: this lady was wearing a nasty red top too. She also said the drummer looked like Earl from 'My Name Is Earl'. Which he didn't. He looked like Dave Grohl. But yeah, the band were good and it was a gooood night all round.
hopefully we'll be seeing them at Bestival too.

THE KABEEDIES + LO-FI CULTURE SCENE - 20th JULY, SOUTHAMPTON JOINERS.
Our first time at joiners. The support girls were alright but we were highly anticipating Lo-Fi Culture Scene. Leigh Mary Stokes was catchy, especially the song 'Perfect'. Lo-Fi Culture Scene are HOTTTTT, and so is their music. They're amazing for their age, their tender age of 15. yum. They did songs such as 'Yes', 'Too Late Anyway', 'Footsteps', 'Hours' and 'Silhouettes'. We knew all the words, so we were mouthing/singing at the front while all the other people just stood like limp lemons. They were tres amazing.

The Kabeedies came on after a few random texts from Rory Kabeedie saying 'where are you hottie?' CONFUSION as he thought Hannah was the sexy Ella-Lou from Fresh Legs. How wrong was he.... The Kabeedies played all the songs we laaaaaaaaaaved, comme, 'Little Brains', 'Treasure Hunting', 'King Canute', 'Lovers Ought To', 'Duck Egg Blue' and 'Fuzzy Felt'. We were singing along to this too, and dancing. There were five of us at the front, all dancing madly and shaking our heads in time with drum rolls, (cos we're cool like that ;) ) The Kabeedies have RIDICULOUS amounts of energy, dancing, bouncing, jumping, star-jumping and shaking the whole way through the set.

Kiosque a Musique.

We spent a lovely afternoon at the bandstand in Portsmouth today, even though we were very annoyed that we missed a great band called the White Coats due to not sleeping the night before and staying in bed til 1! However we caught a glimpse at a few other locals who were also quite good. Looking forward to next Sunday to see who will be playing:)

We also purchased some yummy ben and jerrys cookie dough ice cream and ate it on the common, feeling very sick after but enjoying the moment all the same.









Portsmouth is amazing at 5 in the morning. Empty. Quiet. strangeee.... but AMAZING! We laid down on busy roads, WITHOUT BEING SQUASHED. fun times.

we stole a tennis ball, felt rebellious, and commented on piss-filled bottles. We rolled down by the school of dance too. hahaha.

UGH.

Got Us Some Virgins! WEDGEWOOD ROOMS 1/7/09


yo loverrrrs.
we made our way to a lovely little venue called The Wedgewood Rooms on wednesday. We saw The Virgins. It were brill. Two kinda crappy supports, Clayton Strange, some localers, and Overreact, this band that said, 'you might have heard us on radio 1, if you listen at like 3 in the morning'. Fun times...

They came about 10 ish, everyone was a bit restless by then. It surprisingly didn't sell out, but was goood all the same. There were these two guys at the front who knew every single word and got some drumsticks at the end, lucky buggers. Donald Cummings was all hands on hips, dancing, tres sweaty by the end, IN A JUMPER! but soooooo cool. It was verrrrrry good. boiling, and we want to see them again.

They played...
1. Teen Lovers (an unexpected opener)
2. Radio Christiane
3. She's Expensive
4. Hey Hey Girl
5. Love Is Colder Than Death
6. Murder
7. Fernando Pando (crowds push and shove, down a street, in a bus!)
8. Rich Girl
9. Private Affair
------------------
10. Love Is Colder Than Death (PARTDEUX)
11. One Week Of Danger
We're seeing Hockey and Flashguns next week at Cellars, so we shall update on that oneee!
tahrah, and here's some yummy pics.
