Re: Southampton. Famous for...

Hiya, Paulette! Welcome back! It would be lovely to see you at one of these gigs - not sure which ones I'll be at, but we can message each other on here and work things out. As for the Engine Rooms...it's an ex-garage, I think. Big and full of exposed pipes. It was a roller skating emporium before t...

Re: Alvvays Southampton Joiners Thurs 25 June

Cheers Rich! As great a set as ever from you! You never play songs by bands that are performing that evening - is it bad form to play a song by a band that are performing? I always thought it wrong to wear a t-shirt to a gig of the band that were playing - probably just me though. Anyway, I hope it ...

Re: last.fm

The best thing about Last fm is being able to create automatic Spotify playlists (country dependent, but works in the UK). Click on the Play button to the left of any song in any list and any tunes available on Spotify in whatever list you've clicked on (user's recent songs, user's all-time song lis...

Re: Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Southampton Tues 2 Sept

The Vestals and Brother Goose are supporting. Brother Goose are Southampton's answer to Vampire Weekend, if anybody was asking the question. They'll probably play a song I dislike called Hometown, which is all about supporting the Saints. Time to go to the bar whilst that one's being performed... Ot...

Re: Shopping/Dog Legs + - Southampton Thursday 8 May

Thanks for posting this up on here Rich. I wouldn't have known about it otherwise. I just regret turning up at 8.45 and missing Dog Legs! They sound great on Bandcamp! Shopping are on the Southsea Fest bill, so I expect we'll see them again in September.

Re: The Fireworks - Southampton Cellar - Friday 18th April

If the Fireworks had played for 24 hours, it wouldn't have been long enough. They're just superb! Great music as ever from you Rich! Fingers crossed for another Sun Shines Here sooner rather than later.

Re: Southampton. Famous for...

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, you've been really helpful. Hoping to get there in time for Battery Hens' set at 1.30, but may just miss them. Excited anyway! Veronica Falls! Can't wait!
