Sleep is for NEXT week
The last week was fairly quiet on the blogging front as you can probably tell. Don’t blame us, blame the ridiculous number of good gigs in Cardiff at the moment: I don’t know what’s happened recently, but it seems like you can’t leave your house now without accidentally ending up at a gig (especially as we both live less than five minutes away from the Gate). Over the space of the last seven days we managed to catch Samoans play new tracks to battered students at fun factory, Decimals tear up the Cardiff Arts Institue, Fionn Regan charm a packed out Clwb ifor bach, and Fall of Troy play to an equally packed out Clwb on Sunday. My ears are still ringing, but it’s been a good week.
While this has been detrimental to our wallets (and sleep pattern), it has meant we’ve been making good progress with the compilation, chatting to bands and shows and such and sorting out getting tracks in, so hopefully soon enough we should be able to at long last let you know who’ll be gracing our first release with their presence.
Continuing the theme of gig-going, we’re off to see Monsters of Folk at coal exchange tonight, and I literally can’t wait. If you don’t hear from us for a while again it’ll be because our fragile minds were unable to handle the gravity of seeing Connor Oberst, Mike Mogis, Jim James and M Ward all on stage at the same time. Or we’re tired.
