I was hugely excited about this show, having been a big Death Cab fan for a while, but somehow have never seen them live. Unfortunately the show didn’t really live up to expectations, pretty flat performance from the band and pretty bad sound.
Also, the usual 3 song rule was replaced by a 2 song rule, which everybody neglected to mention until we were ‘ejected’ from the pit. Never mind though, managed to get one song with some lights turned on at least!
Last week I saw The Smashing Pumpkins, photographed RM Hubbert, Twilight Sad, Arab Strap & Death Cab. Despite this show being a little disappointing, it’s been a pretty epic week of gigs.
