The Twang + Dogs + Alterkicks

Very good night. The Twang were a bit difficult to get into at the start, but they did finish the gig strongly. However the night was all about the genius that is Dogs. The lead singer walks onto the stage with a half full pint with a swagger that screams rock god, but pretty sure the man don't give a fuck. Blinding. Look out for the Alterkicks too, they've got the chance of becoming big.

End Of An Era Party aka. The Last Ever Zodiac Night

Thats right, its game over for the existing Zodiac. Now it is time for the men in suits to tear down the walls and replace it with the Carling Academy. Will it still contain the love that bounced around inside? We'll all find out when it reopens in September.
As for the actual night, I think it was always going to be hard to live up to the hype. however a collection of old and new friends (minus Graeme, Rich S and Charlie) gave it the send off it deserved.

Where will life take us now I ask myself?

Last ever Yoursong at the Zodiac

Yoursong: A night where local bands perform cover versions of classic songs.

Pick of the night had to be The Evenings who did covers of Micheal Jacksons 'Thriller', Kylie's 'Locomotive', and Queen's 'We Are The Champions'. Genius.

Borderville did a pretty good job on 'Jesus Christ Superstar' as well.

...On to the LAST EVER ZODIAC NIGHT now, I've capitalised it giving it the respect it deserves. I'm actually leaving the house now to go to it.... nnnnnnnnnow!

Frank Turner at the Zodiac

Good gig, crowd were loving it. Frank was enjoying himself.
Tinged with a bit of sadness however due to the fact that this was the last ever Saturday night at the Zodiac before refurbishment changes it forever and the Carling Academy take over.

...the double sambuka took the edge off though.

The Maccabees and Mayday

Around 18 hours of crazy drinking, dancing and general misbehaviour!

The Maccabees were pretty good, bit of a dodgy start but they got better as the set went on. Worth a look.

As for Mayday, well the social group does seem to get smaller every year but luckily Tim got a friend down to join and he was a good addition. Plus we bumped into Dan and friends from Oxford super group Foxes!, so plenty of jolly going-ons in the Cellar till 6am. Then a few more drinks at The Bear after watching the sunrise on Magdalan bridge, culminating in laying in a field and wanting to die.

Great stuff.
