Another month with some decent gigs. The highlight has to be Mercury Rev at the Barbican with an orchestra.
Best new band
A bit short of outstanding new bands. Benjamin Brooker has been around for a while and I’ve had tickets to see him, but never managed to catch him. His gig at the Moth Club was full of energy. Exactly what I expected.
