First of all, I apologise for the lack of attention I have given here recently. No permanent address and a full-time job has meant that I've not listened to any new music or had proper access to the itnernet for well over a month. As I type this, I am set on a notebook in my girlfriend's mum's house 3 hours before I start work.
Anyway. The summer is over, students are returning, the gig schedule is getting busier. This week Cardiff has some tasty treats.
Sunday 19th September:
Clwb Ifor Bach
£12 on the door
Much loved indie poppers of yesteryear Glasgow's The Vaselines are probably best known for being that band that Kurt Cobain loved. Forming in 1986 and breaking up only 4 years later, it'd be an understatement to suggest that the band don't play very often. And just to reaffirm, this gig will take place in Clwb rather than the originally booked Millennium Music Hall, which I think is a good move.
Gigs also worth noting include:
Cardiff's very own experimental folkster Meilir (blog posts here) plays a refurbed The Cayo on the same date as The Vaselines (19th Sept). He finally seems to be getting a bit more attention in the area after playing tonnes of magical live shows, filled with karumba, piano, acoustic guitar, every-so electro beats, and gravel as an instrument. It really is something to see, so head to the Facebook event for info.
