The Foo Fighters gig in Hyde park last Saturday was very an excellent day out, could have been louder but the weather and company couldn’t have been any better. Pictures from the day are on my site in Photography: England: Foos at Hyde Park. I have also added photographs from my brothers stag do last month in Photography: England: Andrew’s stag.

I have been to see loads of live music over the last couple of months, managing to get to six gigs in May as well as moving house, organizing my brothers stag do and writing a speech for the wedding.

The day after my brothers stag do I went to see The Mystery Jets at the Zodiac in Oxford. A good eclectic gig with support from The Spinto Band and some energetic kids on crystal meth whose name escapes me.

The day after moving house I went to see I Am Kloot at The Rising Moon in Putney. Another good gig, although I was flagging by the end after the previous days exertion and a beer or five at the pub whilst the FA Cup final played out in the background. The following day I went to see The Rakes at Oxford Brooks Student Union. Well worth seeing live, they blitzed through just about all the songs from their debut album along with a smattering of new tracks which sounded equally impressive.

I had almost a week off before seeing The Decemberists at The Zodiac in Oxford, which was one of the best gigs I’ve been to in ages. The songs were pretty much note perfect and the band were up for a good time, exchanging some friendly banter with the crowd. A couple of days later I saw The Shins at Brooks, they pulled of a good set but had the worst support band I have ever seen.

A whole week past before the next gig and it was up there with the best gigs I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to quite a few. I was very impressed by The Brian Jonestown Massacre who played for a whole two and a half hours at The Zodiac in Oxford. Having only recently discovered them I had spent the last couple of weeks familiarising myself with their impressive back catalogue of 12 albums (all available to download for free from their website). The albums do not do their sound justice, the songs sounded a hundred times better live, amped up to the max with five guitarists giving it their all. Fantastic, go see them if you ever get a chance.

Tomorrow I’m off to Hyde Park to witness The Foo Fighters, Motorhead, Queens of the Stone Age and a couple more bands besides in the warm summer sun. Right I’m off to get a six pack and sit in the garden whilst the sun is still shining.

May was a very busy month featuring some life changing events, starting with my brother Andrew’s Stag do, followed by moving house and ending in my brothers marriage to Sharon. I also managed to get to a gig or six in between these momentous occasions.
