That's disappointing, i've always been somewhat looking forward to they day they play a show over here.

Saw Less Than Jake/Anti-Flag/Masked Intruder last night. One of the best all around shows i've been to in a while. Masked Intruder was the highlight hands down. Brendan Kelly from The Lawrence Arms came out on stage and did a couple random stages dives during LTJ's set which was pretty entertaining.

If you just want to hear the songs live it might be worth it for you, they're competent enough but don't really throw themselves into it anymore.
If you want to see a bunch of overweight greedy bastards more interested in plugging their merchandise on stage then you're in for a treat.
I felt exactly the same as Lizard last time I saw them, the only reason I went was because Mrs Guana hadn't seen them before (she won't be fuckin seeing them again though)

Thats too bad. Last time I saw em was in DC at the Blackcat, they were on the 30th anniversary of the Inflammable Material release..(or was it 35?) anyway, they put on an amazing show.. I bet Jake still wears that black shirt with the flames on it to every gig lol.

Re: Giggigty Gig Gigs

He does still wear that shirt haha, and they were great when they played Austin.

Re: Giggigty Gig Gigs

Last time I saw them (last year) he was wearing an SLF tour shirt which was available at the merch stall for only 60 quid (as he informed us twice)
As I said, if you only want to hear the music they're ok, but when you grow up listening to an angry protest band then pay 30 quid to see a bunch of fat money grubbing cunts who just throw in an occasional rehearsed anti-government sentiment because they know it makes the crowd cheer, you're bound to feel ripped off.

Got this one coming up soon, seen the smithies hundreds of times but cant wait to see the menzingers, they are definitely one of my favourite bands over the last 3-4 years.

I have now got internet hooked up and have gone through and started seeding some of my old torrents, If there is anything extra you want or something i am not seeding please send me a message!

Re: Giggigty Gig Gigs

Off With Their Heads next Friday.  It'll be my 7th time seeing them and its their final tour before an indefinite hiatus. I'll be sad to see one of my favorite bands gone for a while but i'm sure as hell glad they existed in the first place. That band has gotten me through a lot.

Oh and Dropkick Murphys on the 23rd big_smile

Re: Giggigty Gig Gigs

Awesome, im seeing them twice, i know one of the venues that i frequent often wont rush them and wont care if they play for a few hours if they wanted too, so that should be good. Im really looking forward to it.

Re: Giggigty Gig Gigs

Apparently I missed Amon Amarth and Behemoth...this greatly displeases me. But hey, at least we get Saving Abel roll.

Re: Giggigty Gig Gigs

Changed my mind about Rebellion and ordered tickets, wasn't going to go but I can't pass up the chance of seeing Zero Boys and Culture Shock, my usual digs are fully booked which I'm gutted about, some twat must have blabbed online because the landlord said all his rooms just went overnight, I've been going there for years and kept my mouth shut about the place on these forums just to avoid that happening.
Anyway, staying just down the road so I'll pop up for a drink with the guy, maybe book for next year while I'm there.

While I was online I ordered tickets for this as well

Charlies 70th, wouldn't miss it for the world, all dayer, hopefully with pass-outs, last time I went to the Ritz I had to queue for half an hour to get out into a corralled off area of the pavement for a smoke, they let one out for every one that came back in, missed the start of the second band, which didn't really matter as it was The Damned, but don't want to miss any of this line-up.
Might get an E-cig
