    Smoking in Venues

    Im looking foward too it. It really annoys me, as everyone else has pointed out, having to dodge lit fags all around the place. And the smells sucks too. Though it depends on the band i can see a lot of the hevery shows with livlery pits starting to absolutly stink. The smell of the pit at Reading (and the smell of the bit just outside the arena) sometimes makes me gag and i can see it getting to a simmilar level if theres no fag smoke to cover up the smell.

    The Polyphonic Spree

    There amazing. One of the best bands ive ever seen live. Ive only seen them at festivals (want to go and see an actul show of theres) but at reading i lost my mates in the croud (i went too far forwards and i think they pissed off thinking id gone mad). It was amazing the buzz was increadble. At the end this huge sweaty man came up and hugged me, seemed some how to sum up the whole show. I preceded to go and reenforce my mates view by going back to my campsite and banging on about them whelst drunk for the rest of the night.

    Ticket Stubs

    I try and keep them with my festival wristbands but i stupidly lost half my collecting recently (well last year). Ive had the ticket stub for Emanual Jal for a good 5 months or so in my walet now too! (though it was a really good show with some good memories for me (personal and of the man) makes me smile when i open my walet (even though its normaly empty bar that).

    Biggest live disappointments?

    Red Hot Chillie Peppers, Reading 99. Most dissapointing band ive ever seen. Also totaly showed up by the offspring who pulled one of the best sets ive ever seen (though ive never seen them match it again).

    Drop Beats Not Bombs

    I saw this on efestivals (this sites festival alter-ego for those who dont know) and thort it might be intresting for people on here. Its only £5 in birmingham so easy to get to and looks good....

    Grandmaster Flash

    Anyone Go? I dont normaly think much of the Art Center as a venu for music (the room is somehow the wrong shape) but they pulled it off this time. Authough maybe that was just because it was the grandmaster and it would be very hard not to. Even the warm up DJs were pritty good. And i can conclusivly say Granmaster Flash (Even if he cant say the word Aberystwyth very well) certanly can work a crowed!
