Sing it back! Woah oh oh oh oh
I saw Jimmy Eat World play on Friday in the Barrowlands in Glasgow.
If you've not heard of Jimmy Eat World you should sentence yourself to a severe lashing with the whip because they're fantastic and that's what you're going to want to do when you realise what you've been missing all this time.
If you have heard of Jimmy Eat World then I assume you'll be wildly jealous of my good self. And here's a photo I took just for you:
The Barrowlands on the other hand I wouldn't expect you to have heard of, even though it's a brilliant venue, unless you're from Central Scotland chances are you've no idea what it is.
It's a gig venue, surprise surprise. It's in a really dodgy part of the east end of the city endearingly nicknamed "The Barras", but the two things that make the Barrowlands my favourite big gig venue are the acoustic and the fact that it used to be a ballroom back in the day.
The sound in the place is perfect, really really perfect. It's exactly the way you want live music to sound.
And the fact that it used to be a ballroom means it has this amazing sprung floor. If you go in it when it's empty and quiet you can hear the springs underneath creaking. But it means that at gigs when you jump around you just bounce. Not like trampoline kind of bounce but you do have a little spring in your step (SUPER-PUN).
Support came from a band called Minus The Bear, who I knew OF but I forgot to move their songs from my My Music folder to my iTunes so I haven't listened to them, but my brother loves them, like really loves them, he also kind of looks like the lead singer. FACT.
Want a photo of them too? Yeah here's a photo of them too:
After the gig we went to Waxy O'Connors, I had to do a Superman change in the street so that I looked reasonable enough to get in. I got I.D'ed in a "there's no way in hell you're 18!" way, so he looked midly surprised at my Student Card that says "Hi, I'm 21 and I hate cameras, the world and you."
In Waxy's I had myself Fatboothed by my friend. So here's a similar picture that says "Hi, I'm 21, I love CAKE."
Would NOMNOMNOM be too predictable a caption?
Actually I think I've gone beyond cutesy eating references. I look like I ate you and you tasted gooooood.
