    I saw them in Aberystwyth a wee while back now- best concert I've ever been too. I spent the entire time dancing, and I mean the entire time. Well no that's a lie, I stopped dancing once to go to the toilet, and another time to tie my shoelaces, but the entire rest of the concert was dancing. SO MUCH FUN

    Bellowhead are criminally under-scrobbled for sure.
