Past Concerts

I have attended the following

2007-12-16 VNV Nation @ Carling Academy Islington

This venue is good, no pillars in the way and the stage is elevated. I like how Ronan talks to the crowd, this was the last scheduled show in their Judgement tour. I've seen these guys before back in Sydney, the crowd in London is much bigger. Its good that this is a 'happy' EBM band. Great show, and everyone was dancing.

?42 total = 2 x ?18.00 tickets + ?6 service fee from ticketweb.

2007-11-28 Roisin Murphy @ Koko (Camden)

This venus was packed and it was difficult to get a good view of her. We settled at the very top floor. She's still got it, and is still dressing up and having fun. Only one annoying Moloko song :) I've seen her before back in Sydney

?62.40 total = 3 x ?18.00 tickets + ?8.40 service fee from ticketweb.

2007-11-25 Mesh + De/Vision (electronic set) @ Electric Ballroom (Camden)

We're really enjoying the noob album from De/Vision, and he's a fun act to watch.

Mesh are the headliners here, they are based in UK after all..

?30 total = 2 tickets

2007-11-03 Ash @ Brixton

The singer is really short. I haven't been following this type of music but it was still good to hear some stuff I used to listen to years ago.

2007-10-07 Covenant @ Electric Ballroom (Camden)

Client supported, they are 3 chicks playing synthpop.

I've seen covenant before back in Sydney a couple of years ago, this time they appeared with Daniel Myer. The smiling funny guy, Clas Nachmanson didn't tour with them this time.

?31.00 total = ?14.00 + ?1.50 bf per tick + postage. Purchased from eee.

2007-08-18 Assemblage 23 @ Electrowerkz

One of the funnier songs I've heard recently is 'Sorry'. Good dance show.

2007-08-14 Skinny Puppy @ Astoria, London

I'm not sure who the support was but they were noisy and batty.

Skinny Puppy used lots of fake blood, he seemed a bit crazy but a great concert regardless.

Paid 2x $21.00 + ?2.00 booking fee from seetickets.

2007-07-19 DJ Shadow @ The Indigo O2

Nice venue, must see if we can go upstairs next time

2007-07-15 Frank Black @ Shepherds Bush Empire

?20 per ticket. I paid ?46.50 for 2 tickets from ticketweb

2007-07-08 Frontline Assembly @ Electric Ballroom

Sunday 2007-07-08, at Electric Ballroom in Camden. ?15 + bf. Total was ?34.76 for 2 tickets.

2007-06-24 Grendel @ The Underworld

?22.40 total for 2 tickets.

2006-12-07 Dinosaur Jr @ the Mean Fiddler

?17 + bf

Support was Lou Barlow, playing acoustic. I don't know his music but it seemed ok. He is actually in the band so he came back later on to play bass guitar

I still enjoyed their songs, and I keep forgetting that Dinosaur Jr's vocalist is not solely J Mascis.

Ticket Vendors

Ticketmaster is just annoying. They won't say whether a concert is sold out of not, and they have a habit of releasing extra seats. And what is "VIP THE ENTERTAINMENT CARD ALLOCATION"?

https://www.viptheentertainmentcard.co.uk/ is dead.

Ticketmaster seems to be only seller of concerts at Astoria.


The Indigo @ The O2

Slow bar service, they have screens and there is an upper level but I have never been up there.

On 2007-07-19 a Becks Pint was ?3.50, water ?2.00

Electrowerkz, Angel

This is a small club venue, with UV lighting so check your dandruff before you go!
