SO. I’ve done the Myspace trawl and found a lot of good new stuff. Which – when you add new finds together with old favourites and acts-I’ve-wanted-to-see-for-ages – makes Hinterland an exciting, if boggling, prospect.
At the moment, my key plan looks to be like hanging round the Arches/Classic Grand end where I can start off with Y’All Is Fantasy Island or Miss The Occupier. Remember Remember are new to me, but pretty much now a must-see after ODing on their myspace tracks, and after Punch And The Apostles who I’ve trying to see for months.
The next bit is where options really come in. I’ve still never seen Sons And Daughters or Foxface, but I’d like to catch Ming Ming And The Ching Chings too. Failing any of those (like they’re sold out or something) I could always nip up to PivoPivo to see Be A Familiar followed by Oh, Atoms – but I like the sound of Broken Records too. So, choices, aye.
The end of the night is a down the middle split – either Your Twenties and We Were Promised Jetpacks at the ABC or This Will Destroy You and Isosceles at the Art School.
I know. Sounds complicated to me too.
Wish me luck and, if you’re of a mind follow my tweets, to find out what I actually end up doing. In fact, follow the #hinterland tag to get everyone else’s views too.
It’s gonna be an adventure.
