Howdy folks. The weekend is finally upon us and I’m off to see Muse in Manchester tomorrow, which I’m rather looking forward to. I’m hoping that they’ll play a lot of their older (and better, in my opinion) songs rather than the Queen/Blondie tributes that they seem to be churning out lately, but somehow I doubt that’ll happen. I can but hope…
Anyways, this week the Gig Rig has evolved and has taken on a brand new look, which we’re hoping you’ll agree is a big improvement. Here’s my highlights for the new additions:
Rodrigo Y Gabriela will be playing 5 gigs at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London later on this year. If you’ve not heard their music before then I urge you to give it a listen because it is utterly brilliant. They produce sounds with acoustic guitars that I didn’t even realise were humanly possible!
Following the release of their much anticipated self-titled album later this month, Interpol will be embarking on a brief UK tour at the end of November. They’re one of those bands that has the unique capacity to make music that is both gloomy and uplifting at the same time.
