I know for a fact there’s people that don’t come to our shows because we don’t put metal bands on which is pretty silly, not pointing fingers at anyone close to me as you’d be the first to know.
Anyways we put bands on we think will fit well together and wouldn’t normally get a chance to play round here together or with a “bigger” band. Like I said the other day what happened to that mentality that I know pretty much everyone round here used to have which was just going to the shows to listen to new music, it’s all to lazy because you can just type whatever you want in on YouTube or whatever and boom no need to go find new music in a live setting right? Wrong, thats never how it used to be.
End of the day we do it because we think people round here are open minded enough to listen to bands they may not take a chance on, weather it’s hardcore, punk, alternative, metal, deathcore, death metal etc. some people haven’t come out because of the different things we have on but more fool you, those people have missed out on some amazing live music.
Like someone said to me the other night at the Black Art/Weathered Hands gig “where are the people who complained there was no good band nights on?” Granted it wasn’t the best turnout at all and people missed out on three amazing bands which is a shame because we all work hard to bring different things for people round here.
Well now that’s up to you people, take a chance as we have some amazing bands playing for us over the next 2 months and even stuff for the rest of the year also not even on our gigs as our man Rastin who has helped us from the beginning at offas tavern and the North Wales Inn and Mark Chesterton who runs North Wales Gigs which is a gigs listing site for everything going on round here both have amazing stuff on regularly.
Probably just ranting to myself but when there’s “nothing on” again as people complained in the first place way over a year or so ago when we decided to do gigs you can’t just turn around and say “why are there no shows?” Answer is there under your nose and people just couldn’t be bothered to support live music in North Wales.
