GIG REVIEW – Easter All Dayer @ The Pot, Rhyl

By |March 31st, 2018|1 Comment


Rhyl is currently quite notorious for non-attendees. Once the hub of all things bright and musical during the Breeding Ground, Dudley Arms and Bar Blu days things have nosedived over the years with venues and bands struggling to justify the efforts involved in hosting gigs.
There are still great nights going on, but with so much choice for gig goers it’s easy to see a band ‘next time’. So today it was heartwarming to have a good attendance from the word Go and a pile of great bands to boot.

A handy collection of three fine representatives of the burgeoning local original music scene, all gathered in the cheap and ever cheerful Skerries?  Yes, that will do, even for a flying visit from me.  It was good to see a lot of other band members out to support too, not something that always happens with folks caught up in their own bubbles.  I had sent some drunks to reserve me a seat up front so had a good view of proceedings.

Krank
The Loft in Bangor is that great room above Rascals in the Upper part of the city. This week is Freshers Week – a time when landlords (of both flats and public houses) start rubbing their hands as a huge influx of new students hit the city in a big way, hellbent on blowing their grants in the first week.
