    Quite excited, going to see Frank Turner again tonight at Manchester Academy 2.
    Well, amazing of course! Especially loved the bit where Frank brought on a girl from the audience to play a Harmonica solo, apparently though her boyfriend was at the bar at the time and missed the whole thing!
    Being suckers for Merch we also bought some playing cards and thought yeah that’ll do us and outside afterwards were some really nice t-shirts and hoodies, having some money left in my pocket, how could I refuse?

  6. an update

    June 16, 2005 by Daniel

    So exams are finished now and have been letting hair down a little and getting out to some gigs.

    System of a Down played at the MEN Arena on Tuesday and then I went with Kate, Natalia, Paul and Tony to Reuben wednesday night.

    Attached is the local papers review of the System gig, some flickr pics to follow

    System of a Down @ M.E.N. Arena – 3 out of 5

    Neal Snowdon


    TICKETS prices were cheaper than average, the light show was basic and between-song banter was non-existent.

    This was no-frills arena rock and the near-capacity crowd loved every pulsating minute. System don’t deal in the niceties of showbusiness.

    For them it’s a case of turn up, tune up and blast it out.

    The result was a solid 90-minute set that had the crowd going wild from the start and ended with grown men fighting over drumsticks lobbed into the crowd by skinbeater John Dolmayan.

    Their musical stew of thrash punk, heavy metal and progressive rock means this Armenian-American four-piece serve up a sound similar to rock opera put through a crusher.

    The opening blasts of BYOB and Revenga and old chestnuts like Chop Suey showed a band unafraid to change tempo and style. And the crowd loved them for it.
