Been a wee while, but I’ve not really been up to a great deal lately. Until this weekend.
On Friday I went to the TRNSMT festival on Glasgow Green, principally to see Radiohead. I wandered round checking out the smaller stages, but to be honest, spent most of my time at the main stage, where I saw Rag N Bone Man, London Grammar, Belle and Sebastian, and finally Radiohead.
It was a great day, but as usual you were at the mercy of the overpriced food and drink, so before I went in, I stuffed my face in the city centre so I only needed a snack later, and I just had to bite the bullet when it came to the cost of a beer (£5 for a pint of Carlsberg which would const about £3 usually).
Anyway, it was a great day. Here’s some pics.
Yesterday morning I forgot to book a place at the yoga class, and by the time I’d realised, all the places had gone.
Double fail, as I’d put off meeting someone to get a copy of his band’s cd, as I had the class. (it’s all ok, though as I’m meeting him this afternoon). Not only do The Swamp Born Assassins have an awesome name, and album cover, but they’re damn good too.
(Check them out here ). It’s great to discover really good local bands.
Last night went to see Toto at the Concert Hall in Glasgow. Now while I’ve heard and liked the odd song over the years, they’ve always seemed a little rock-lite for my tastes, but my wife is a fan, and I knew she’d love seeing them live, so off we went.
Well, they may come across “rock-lite” on album, but they were totally blistering live. I knew Steve Lukather was a good guitarist, but last night I discovered he’s actually an awesome guitarist. It was a brilliant show. Over two hours of classic rock, and of course, they had to finish with Africa 😀
I was pretty stunned to hear from the stage that this was the first time they’d ever been to Glasgow!
Anyway, I think last night turned me from casual appreciator to fully fledged fan. Now, I’m nipping out to buy the new album (XIV) catch you all later.
