Other random snaps from the day


This was the first time 2Q had taken place in Derby and it all seemed to go off pretty damn well.

My only gripe of the day was not one of the venues where selling any food and everyone was starving/or very drunk! With most of the venues having outside areas could they have not have had a fast food truck or with Derby city centre having more take away spent square mile than any other city could the not have teamed up and got one of them to open during the day?

Apart from that the day was full of laughs, drinks, a little bit of rain and a lot of good music!

Tickets for next year have already gone on sale.

HECK/Rescue Rooms Nottingham 

Visited Rescue Rooms in Nottingham last night for the album launch of HECK, The Instructions tour.

These Nottingham guys use to be called Baby Godzilla and from the amount of band t-shirts in the crowd with the pervious name, you can tell they’ve had a strong following since the beginning.

I’m not a metal head but these guys are awesome. Their stage presence is phenomenal, they spent a large portion of the gig in the crowd with the fans, crawling up on too the balcony and pretty much giving who ever does the health and safety for the venue a heart attack.

Big shout out to Raketkanon too.

This Belgian punk noise-rock foursome are completely mesmerising to watch and sing half of their stuff in a language they’ve made up. 

I drank  Beavertown beer and danced like no one was watching.

Finished the night off with a trip to Taco Bell before heading to bed    



 stinking and with my ears ringing but happy.

HECKs tour kicks off tomorrow and there’s still tickets available.
