Thought I'd start a thread for any comments on recent gigs you might have attended. Plus it gives me the chance to rave about DEVO at the Manchester Apollo last night. One of the last bands from the "punk" era that I wanted to see live, and they didn't disappoint. A very fun, funny, eclectic, and entertaining show from one of my favourite unclassifiable bands. Great stuff! We're all Devo now!

I just spent 3 days camping out in Derbyshire at Bloodstock. As festivals go, it was one of the smaller ones, with only about 10,000 attendees. Some excellent bands performed, from a wide mix of metal genres - although folk metal is just as daft played live. Highlights for me were Scar Symmetry, Dark Tranquillity, Rise to Addiction and Arch Enemy. Lacuna Coil and In Flames also put on good shows.

Belated reply to Ian Sales: I went to the very first Bloodstock with my brother because it was the last gig of Skyclad with Martin Walkyer. We had a great time (we stayed all weekend, visiting gigs in Nottingham and Derby before the festival), and were quite amused when the Assembly Rooms ran out of beer around 3 in the afternoon (they were used to theatre attenders, not boozing heavy metal maniacs): only Boddington's was available. So, out of necessity, my brother, friend and I went to some local pubs for a quick one in between shows.

I understand they did stock enough booze in subsequent festivals, and I haven't heared Alex (of Derby Alt Fiction) complain about beer shortage either.

Anyway, I believe that Kyrb Grinder (Threshold drummer Johanne James's band) were playing the secondary stage in Bloodstock this year, so did you see them?

I bought Kyrb Grinder's debut CD at the Threshold show in Helmond (Holland) last weekend, and quite like it, so I'm curious as to how they are live.

Jetse, looking at the set list for all three days of Bloodstock, I can see no mention of Kyrb Grinder. Was it Bloodstock Open Air they were playing at? The indoor event this year has been cancelled.

Last weekend, I saw Pallas and Blind Ego playing live at that well-known centre of prog rock, Wath upon Deane. Wasn't a bad gig, actually.

Bloodstock went open air? I didn't know that. As far as I know they were in the Assembly Rooms.

After some digging I found that Kyrb Grinder payed Bloodstock in 2006 (I mistakenly assumed this year). Sorry about that.

There's been a Bloodstock Open Air since 2005, but it's not a replacement for the indoor festival. This year they had to postpone BOA from July to August, which made it too close to the indoor Bloodstock. So they cancelled the indoor festival.

Bit of an 80s rock-fan and next Thursday will be off to see Def Leppard and Whitesnake in Nottingham. :D

Yeah? Is Coverdale still packing, Chris?

Just got back from seeing Maiden at Twickenham at the weekend. Two hours of retrospective gold. Felt like I was 17 again.

I saw Blue Oyster Cult in Holmfirth. They were bloody good.

A few more weeks and then I'm off to deepest darkest Derbyshire for Bloodstock. Great lineup - Akercocke, Opeth, Týr, Moonsorrow, Soilwork, Eluveitie, Napalm Death, Swallow the Sun, Alestorm, At the Gates, Nightwish... And few perhaps not so good - so we'll just have to drink beer while they're on.

I got to see Tom Waits a few days ago, for the first time in my life. I was a bit too far away for my taste (the front row tickets were really too expensive) but was totally overwhelmed. It was the second time in my life I was seeing someone I consider a living legend - the first one being Patti Smith. He's an amazing performer, and it was really strange to be hearing so many classics in a row (Rain Dogs, Cemetery Polka, Innocent When You Dream, lots of stuff from Mule Variations).

There will be lots of interesting gigs in Paris around September and October but the one I'm really looking forward to is Amanda Palmer, especially as I'm in a heavy Dresden Dolls phase these days. I'm increasingly fascinated by their music and especially her lyrics.
