The story at hand is about Moneen and their upcoming UK tour. June 22, The Barfly in Camden (London) with Lights Action! and Sharks. And it’s a relatively cheap night too, only £7 (~$15). It’s gonna be grand, hopefully I’ll finally get to see them play a full, uninterrupted set for once… In Canada I missed most of their set trying to find my seats, supporting Alexisonfire in Sydney they were plagued by technical difficulties, Soundwave this year I had to miss a bit of them to catch some of the other bands playing and then I missed them play at their sideshow.

Speaking of Soundwave sideshows here’s a photo of Kenny (singer from Moneen) and I after the Alkaline Trio / Saves The Day / Rival Schools gig at the Manning Bar:



I’m really not good at this blogging thing, I don’t think I have made a single post yet that I haven’t edited at least 2-3 times with changes or more information… This section is one of those additions, I forgot to mention that the Glastonbury lineup was announced the other day and it is AMAZING! Checkout the full lineup to see what I’m talking about, but if you can’t be bothered (and I don’t really blame you, truth is this blog is really just for me to look back on in future) here’s a sample of the awesomeness:
Bruce Springsteen + The E Street Band
Neil Young
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
The Specials
Lily Allen
Spinal Tap
Eagles of Death Metal
Tom Jones
Bloc Party
White Lies
The Prodigy
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Brand New (!!!)
The Gaslight Anthem
The Streets
Cold War Kids

  • many more you probably don’t know or care about. But I’m stoked!

19 Days before I head off.
