After The Crave tour, we were meant to be sorting out house after the builders and then having a chill before the Star*Rats tour. But when G.U.Medicine announced the tour and put out a plea for merch seller etc, we just had to go, we LOVE these guys.
Wed 16th March 2011 _ O2 Academy 2, Birmingham
Tour has started with a bang, well a CRACK. Windscreen has been whacked by a stone, now it looks like this !!
After a few phone calls to and from insurance company and Autoglass, it’s all arranged to have a new windscreen on Monday. Until then MrRob will just have to put up with the crack 🙁
On to venue and introductions to Mark (Holy Grail/Revoker’s merch guy and HGs driver etc) and nods to the bands 😉 Us ladies are shy 😉
Merch set up in lobby and time for gig
First on tonight were A Poetic Yesterday
Those dirty rockers G.U.Medicine are ripping up the stage on first night of tour! At this rate we’ll all be knackered end of tour 😉
Unfortunately I didn’t get any pics of them tonight
Net up were USA’s Holy Grail. A beautiful, sweet looking bunch of guys, until they start playing, then it’s like your eardrums are being ripped out Arrrrghhhhhhhh BUT great to watch 😉
Headlining tonight are Welsh lads Revoker. Man they are loud and heavy too. This tour is going to be a test for me. I’m not a fan of heavy music, I prefer more ROCKY stuff, but I’m willing to listen with an open mind.
