These Waves @ Vines, Derby, 16/5/2010

I popped out tonight to see Beyond This Point Are Monsters and These Waves. I managed to get some snaps of the latter but I was at the back of the room for BTPAM so the best I got was this:

Beyond This Point, Beyond My Lens

Regardless of my shit photographic position, I loved their set. And I’m not the biggest lover of instrumental, post-rocky stuff, it usually makes me drift off. But BTPAM have got tunes and riffy bits, that’s what holds my attention. Lovely!

These Waves - 12

And then These Waves came on, first time I’ve seen them with their new line up and first Derby gig for them as such too. They were ace, got the crowd moving along with them and it was a plus having them so close and in-our-faces. Oh yeahhhhhh!

Bzangy Groink Playlist 21/4/10

Woah, sorry for the long break before posting this up, I’ve just finished my first year at Uni, essays all over the shop! 🙂

His Statue Falls

Trying to remember back… that night’s top new track was ‘Sooner If You Let Me’ by His Statue Falls. If you like shouty metalness + ravey synths, I think you’ll love this band’s album. I can’t get enough of ’em! They are fucking brilliant!

The Format

The best old tune was ‘Time Bomb’ by The Format. If you’ve recently seen Paramore on tour, you may have seen fun. which is the Nate Format’s new thingy. If you like fun., check out the awesome band he was in before. And this ramble of mine!
