Noel Gallagher, BRMC, Night Beats, Shame, Blood Red Shoes

Last year, I went to a ton of live shows and this year has actually been surprisingly full despite not writing about them really. I probably could have written a lot about the Noel Gallagher show since I ended up getting into the interactive Oasis experience, but the food was more exciting to me than the Oasis stuff! It’s rare that you get delicious catered meals before gigs, but I think people who paid for it really paid a lot. Also, the actual show was pretty exciting, I actually really like what I’ve heard from the new album and certain Oasis songs are really great, like this one:

February was one of those once every few year BRMC road trips, but seeing them over and over again can get both exhausting and possibly a bit boring. I think it might be better for me to limit seeing them to the local gigs I can get to more easily and maybe a little farther out like Las Vegas or something. I don’t know, maybe I’ll change my mind next time I see them. The lack of views on my tour videos indicate perhaps there’s an oversaturation of videos:

Even less popular are my Night Beats videos, which I admit could be better. I didn’t plan to take videos fast enough, so I often cut off the beginnings, whoops:

As far as UK buzz bands go, I think the kids in Shame were pretty good:

Blood Red Shoes are a band I’ve heard about for years and finally seeing them live was really cool! Their new single “God Complex” sounds very promising, a more moody sound than usual for them:
