It was my first time seeing a live band earlier this year, I saw The Black Keys in Nottingham, then in July I went to my first festical, Festival Internacional de Benicŕssim. (It was in Spain.)
Now to try and recall the bands I saw: The Stone Roses (Headline) At the Drive in (Headline) Bob Dylan (Headline) De La Soul - They replaced Florence and the Machine who pulled out after she strained her vocal cords. Bombay Bicycle Club Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds Jessie J Ed Sheeran (Suprisingly Great) The Vaccines Example (Also surpised my how much I enjoyed) The Maccabees Miles Kane Maverick Sabre
On Saturday I'm going to a local pub to see my friend's band play. It shall be a good night.
