GLAMOUR OF THE KILL + THE BASTARD SONS + RSJ + AMONGST THIEVES + ASHES
DUE TO SOME PARTICULARLY DIFFICULT RENT NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE LANDLORD THIS WEEK, FIBBERS IS STILL TEMPORARILY CLOSED SO THIS WEEKEND’S SHOWS ARE MOVING TO SISTER VENUE TOKYO ON TOFT GREEN (BEHIND MICKLEGATE).
THE GOOD NEWS IS IT’S STILL THE SAME SUPER-COOL LIVE MUSIC VENUE FEEL WITH A LARGE STAGE, BIG NOISY BOXES TO ASSAULT YOUR LUGS AND FLASHING LIGHTS TO MAKE IT LOOK ALL ROCK ‘N’ ROLL AND THAT. BUT BIGGER AND WITH MUCH BETTER VIEWING, LOTS OF SEATING, EASIER PARKING AND ACCESS FROM THE STATION AND STILL IN THE CITY CENTRE. RESULT, REALLY.
ALL YOU GOTTA DO IS MAKE YOUR WAY OVER OUSE BRIDGE, HANG A RIGHT AT POPWORLD DOWN GEORGE HUDSON STREET AND AFTER 100 METRES TAKE THE FIRST LEFT AT SALVATION TO GO UP TANNER ROW/TOFT GREEN; WE’RE NEAR THE TOP. FIVE MNINUTES. WHAT COULD BE EASIER.
Is this the rock gig of the year around these parts? Yeah, we think so …
GLAMOUR OF THE KILL are raising the party flags for that ‘80s hair metal meets Metallica meets Lizzy vibe. They’ve thrown away the subgenre rule book and written their own but with awesome musicianship, not just foot-on-monitor posing.
Think Maiden and Aerosmith on The ‘Strip, big riffs and even bigger choruses.
When frontman Davey Richmond revealed to Kerrang! that Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot and Pantera changed his life, there was the road map. Right there.
“A good song is something you'll walk down the street humming without even knowing you’re doing it,” he says, “It’s when you stop and think to yourself, ‘I really love that tune!’ That’s when you know that song has had an impact. You take it to your friends, ‘You should hear this riff! You should hear this song chorus! Man, you’ve got to hear this song! Check this out!’”
And just look at that support bill!
It's going to sell out well in advance. Get those tickets sharpish!
