Last night myself and co-bothers Lynn and Gemma had a wee thought...Hmmm... What have we got to do today? Well we can sit about and do fuck all, always a good idea, OR we could go to Tennents Vital and go a Bothering.
So we went a bothering and this is what we found. We found Some Black Velvets, some Future Heads, some Faithless and Some Partridge in a...I mean some Kings of Leon.
Well everyone knows that Band Bothering is notoriously hard to do in an outdoor setting so the idea today was not to meet and greet but merely to enjoy some god damn good music and enjoy some fine Indie ass on le stage.
Well that we did and we did well but I must say the Belfast gigging crowd, we are not impressed. No sense of gig etiquette what so ever. For example if some one has been standing marking a spot for 5 hours in order to see the headlining act do not act like a pissy little bitch because said person will not let you push in front of them and take their place cause five minutes ago you decided you were a fan.
Forget it darling we were doing this when you were still creaming over West life.
I assure you dear friend Band Botherers are not elitist by nature but we will push if shoved.
We may construct however light hearted rules of gigging guide line in the near future.
It’s not that people are bad at gigging it’s just they have been so starved of gigs for so long that maybe they just need a gentle guiding hand.
Or a swift punch in the fucking gob :D
Any way I was appoint BBB staff photographer last night, mainly cause I was the only one who had the patience to stand up front all day, and got what I could however the Stage was much to high and to dark by the time KOL came on to get any decent shots. They’re not my best but here is what I have so far:
( The Black VelvetsCollapse )
( The Future HeadsCollapse )
( FaithlessCollapse )
I managed to get but one Kings Of Leon shot where you could see any one God damn it!
( Lone King Of LeonCollapse )
