So like, I'd heard two songs by Youth Group
prior to Wednesday night. I can't say I enjoyed myself, although Youth Group were good. The first support Laura Imbruglia
was terrible. Just, too loud and sreechy and terrible. I want to blame the sound guys, the music did not need to be that unbearably loud, sound guys!
The next support was Jason Walker And The Last Drinks
, they weren't bad and a few of my friends liked them, but they were too country-ish for me and I really disliked the banter of Jason Walker. Too much swearing, and trying much (much) too hard to impress.
I really, really liked Youth Group. A lot. But at the same time I didn't enjoy myself. I'm not one to complain about loudness of gigs but this one was TOO LOUD (and worse, it was shrill). Sure, we were standing close to the speakers but I've stood next to speakers before and never have my ears hurt just thinking about it. Anyway, I liked everything Youth Group played. Especially Skeleton Jar
