GIG REVIEW – Focus Wales 2018 (Thursday)

By |May 10th, 2018|0 Comments

There was an extra spring in my step as I made my way to Ty Pawb in Wrexham to pick up a wristband for the weekend at this year’s Focus Wales. I had scanned the line-up and stage times of what is in store and it was full of disappointments… Those being that there’s so many quality bands playing that there’s inevitable clashes throughout the three days.

The stature of Focus Wales grows every year, as does the stature of bands queuing up to play it and the queues of people wanting to see them. Spread across Wrexham in at least seventeen venues / stages / settings – it has something to offer for anyone looking for artistic enlightenment…. Or, in other words – getting smashed and having a great time. (pic Exit International by Brent Jones and below)

Chupa Cabra
They have a quirk without being quirky, they have an irk without being irksome… Having being introduced to them by the very quirky and irksome Arron Cooper in May, I was eager to finally catch up and witness
Chupa Cabra in the flesh.
I was late to the party… With singles only having a shelf life of a couple of months, I had missed the party by three, but I guess if you’ve not heard a release before then it is
new to you no matter how old it is.
