Tax the Heat, Warren Haynes, Dead Daisies + Inglorious, Paul Carrack .... It's a bit quiet as there are a few festivals in July & August: Steelhouse Festival or Rambling Man Fair - last weekend in July, but both of those are 100+ miles from where you're staying. Rebellion Festival in Blackpool the first weekend in August & Bloodstock in Derby the following weekend - but they may not be t

Great post Don. Yes it's over-rated in my opinion. I need SOME originality in my musical diet but I wouldn't expect any originality within the MHR genre. Having said that a good steak is a good steak and I can't eat snail porridge every night.

Bad news about the Duchess. Fibbers has attracted acts more to my taste since they moved across town so I haven't been to the Duchess in a couple of years but I always enjoyed my nights there.

I like what I've heard from Ulysses but that comparison seems like a stretch to me.

A very good point that I hadn't taken into account Bruce. Perhaps fewer acts but playing longer sets would be a way of reducing costs across the bill & maintaining the budget for the headliners ? What I meant was, although all the bands announced so far are worth seeing, there isn't one act that is a "cannot miss" kind of band .... yet. Firefest spoiled us by having at least

Seen them live a few times and have always enjoyed them. Hope the band are on form, there's a good crowd & you enjoy your evening.

Seen them a couple of times but can't get into the band. Too far at the folky end of prog for me. Saw Bryan's band Expressions a few times in the late 80s and they were a very competent melodic hard rock band.

Marco Mendoza's solo shows don't seem to get a mention here. With the band back in the UK for the second time this year maybe some aren't even aware that the tour is taking place this week. 1 May London, O2 Academy 2 2 May Evesham, The Iron Road 4 May Sutton-in-Ashfield, The Diamond 5 May Keighley, West Yorkshire, The Exchange Music & Arts 6 May Inverness, Mad Hatters 7 May Edinburgh,

I like the understated nature of it but was expecting it to build to a ripping Brion solo so it feels like a missed opportunity.

You are rightfully protective of people who, in extreme circumstances, may be the victims of criminal activity. However; I would never advocate persecuting an entire group for the criminal activities of a small individuals. In North Carolina is the prevalence of such criminal activity higher in the transgender community than it is from other females ? If not their rights should surely be the s

Perhaps battles require different strategies in different countries and at different times. It's not as if the US is an oppressive country that requires engagement with more liberal western culture ..... although from the outside it is unsettling to see what kind of backwards steps it may take over the next 5 years.

Calling somebody a bigot is certainly an emotive term but I think that the word bigoted should be used to describe the action of making negative and largely irrational assumptions about people based on their personal characteristics.

Big name acts using their profile to highlight recently implemented regressive policies is a noble gesture. Many people are not fully engaged with policies that don't immediately affect them, so I think encouraging people to think is a good thing. The impact it has on fans and workers is short lived. Bad legislation gets embedded if it isn't challenged quickly.

Punky's vocalist is Chandler Mogel not Danny Anniello. That first track was very promising though.

Wasn't it Steve MacDonald from Redd Kross that said he should write all Cheap Trick's songs to bring them back in line after the Lap / Busted era ? Now Julian Raymond is doing the job. I liked the Dear Mr President album at the time but it sounds limp and a whiney in retrospect. Other than Blood Red Lips I'm not really feeling the album yet but that's probably because I bought Weezer's white alb

Saw Back to Verona a couple of times last year and really enjoyed them - Anthemic well structured songs with more depth than this single suggests.

Last year the first announcement was made on 14th February & the full line up wasn't announced until 20th June - I know that this impacted ticket sales but I'm confident that this will be a great weekend away with some never seen before acts even though it must be increasingly difficult to assemble a decent bill.

How local is local ? We're spoilt where I live. If they were playing within an hour's drive of me there'd be several on the list I'd like to see: Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle Buddy Guy Tower of Power Morris Day & the Time The Jayhawks But I've never seen any of the acts on your list so I can't really recommend any ...... and I am less fussy than some here too.

Positives: Sound is good and it's got an intimate feel. Negatives: because of the strange shape, low stage & low ceiling there are areas where the views aren't great.
