Soundgarden and Graveyard live at O2, Dublin on September 16th, 2013

Thankfully not as they came back out a few minutes later to fly into Rusty Cage, a personal favourite of mine, but then killed all of the energy they had going with Like Suicide, which don’t get me wrong is a song I really like, but it’s a bit of a downer in an encore. The show ended with Beyond the Wheel and then a really annoying 10 minutes plus of an aural assault with just Ben and Kim on stage backs to the crowd and a lot of puzzled looks going on. The weird and at times wonderful Soundgarden for me at least just didn’t hit enough highs tonight, not a bad gig, but certainly not blown away either. Till next time I live in hope.

THE BURNING CROWS , with Mia Klose and The Smokin’ Prophets at The Borderline, London , September 6th, 2013

The Borderline is regarded as a Soho musical institution. The basement venue, originally opened in 1976 in another guise has offered a stage for acts from Britpop to grunge and alt.folk and all points in between but is best known for its focus on alternative rock plus traditional rock and metal acts. It’s small with a capacity of around 275 and it is this limit that allows the crowds to get up close and personal with any band playing here.
