The first band was Lake Effect who were ok.
Next were Special Needs who are nuts, they were great to watch and were a kind of 60's/70's sounding band, with not all their dogs barking.
The Rocks were next, and as the name suggests the did indeed Rock. The were loudy and fun and well worth a listen to if you get the chance.
Finally the band that I had been waiting to see The Barbs, Absolutely amazing stuff. There were new songs, old songs banter with the crowd…and an inflatable banana!
I left the Colly feeling super-charged (the incredibly sugary coke probably helped with that feeling aswell).
When the Barbs get back to Cov go see them that's an order!

A super film from a director who I'll be writing alot more about, Wong Kar Wai.
I descovered this film in China when I was there and made everyone watch it. It's well shot with two seperate story lines and some great acting. Tony Leung is superb as a love-sick policeman and Faye Wong is stunning as the disolusioned, chip shop employee who dreams of becoming an airstewardess…sorry flight attendant!
Definately worth a watch if you can find it…simply brilliant.
The album is fun and bouncy although they are capable of a more serious edge, especially in the superb 'Bury You'.
A great debut album and I'm really looking forward to seeing them play again on Saturday, at the Colloseum.

I loved it…Red Weather and Howling Self are outstanding. The only thing better than listening to this is seeing them live as they kick several kinds of ass.
