Tonight?s show was cool. We played here the last time. The Cardiff crowd are among the best singers on a UK tour. Very tuneful.
After we played Driftwood tonight, I did an experiment. Usually the preferred thing to do at a rock show is to cheer and clap. So I asked the crowd if they would BOO! instead of cheer after the following song.
Everyone agreed and when Somewhere Else ended it ended to 5000 people booing. WoW! It sounded awesome. I do believe that it is good to cheer but on occasion, it is also very healthy to boo. Do you have a boo in you. I?m sure you do. It was super cool.
Tonight someone threw coins at the stage after I did Flowers In The Window without the PA. On reflection I think whoever threw it, did it as a joke, to my busking skills, but regardless, you shouldn?t throw coins at the stage.
Someone threw a rolled up tee shirt at me the other night and it hit the mic and I split my lip. Not good. If you are going throw stuff at the stage, t-shirts, bras, knickers (clean) don?t throw them at the musicians! Just throw them on the stage, between the musicians.
Anyways, the culprit was booed into next week by the crowd, who had had ample booing practice earlier in the evening.
I went to this gig! Travis were on top form but I've got to say the atmosphere wasn't great and wasn't nice being elbowed by drunk people out of the place in the front I waited so patiently for! Still really enjoyed it and the best thing was that I got to meet all of Keane, Dougie and Andy afterwards! I got soooooooooooooooo cold waiting outside!
