Memorable gigs continued...
I've been collecting some more favourite gigs - Abby loved Sam Phillips at Joe's Pub Theater in New York City because of the intimate venue and awesome musicians, the mysteriously named 'M' enjoyed (what 'M' can remember of it anyway) The Undertones way back in 1979 in Aberystwyth...Iwan couldn't choose between Gorky's in Resolven and the last gig from Ffa Coffi Pawb in Llanelwedd in 1993.
Owain's best gig was Datblygu and Albert Hoffman also in Aberystwyth in 1993 or maybe 1994... Carla loved Take That recently in Cardiff and Ellie danced on the stage with Chuck Berry in Liverpool in 2004!
As mentioned in a previous post, my favourite gig was seeing Thurston Moore (of Sonic Youth) in Amoeba Records in San Francisco. It was a promo show for his solo album 'Trees Outide the Academy' which had just been released and I went on my own on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Thurston and his band came on late, with the set list written on a paper plate... it was amazing...
