With SXSW next month, I’ve been on a serious economy drive so I limited the number of gigs this month. But the gigs I did attend were in the main of a high standard.

So Sorry, Ben See
Some excellent gigs this month with some top-notch live bands. But it was an easy choice. The Savages and Bo Ningen on the same bill was always going to be an awesome gig.
