Few Against Many

It’s that time of year again – and I’m dragging my ageing carcass to see a band or two at Corporation in Sheffield.  Tonight, Greek Power Metal virtuosi Firewind and Norwegian/German symphonic metallists Leaves’ Eyes have my attention and I’m prepared for the evening ahead.

My ticket is on my person, my earplugs (and spare earplugs) are in my pocket and my new, iPod-replacing Sansa Clip MP3 player is ready to do podcast duty between bands (“Hollywood Babble-On”, in case you’re wondering).  Rock and/or Roll?  Oh yes, I know how to get down (carefully and with due recourse to health & safety regulations/my ever-encroaching infirmity).

Expect a report, replete with the quality music criticism you’ve come to expect (“And then they rocked a bit more – and it was ace!”) from the blog that nobody at all is describing as the spiritual heir to Lester Bangs‘ seminal body of rock writing.

Further to yesterday’s “Support Your Scene!” post, I’m going to have to find myself an equivalent gig by an up-and-coming local/unsigned rock band to go to in September as I’ve just bought a ticket to see Greek Power Metallists Firewind in September, supported by German/Norse ethereal folk metal maestra Leaves Eyes.

Leaves Eyes – get some ‘beauty and the beast’ metal into your life…

I’ll be keeping an eye out for likely bands and report back when an opportunity to Support My Scene shows itself…
