Favourite Gigs Of 2013

This is the second part of my review of the year, my favourite gigs of the past year.

Oh dear, the number of gigs continues to decline. Only eight this year and one of those was Nottingham's Splendour Festival which did, to be fair, contain outstanding performances from Peter Hook and The Light and Maximo Park. Two of the others were British Sea Power and a third saw British Sea Power supporting.

So... gig of the year...

British Sea Power, Rescue Rooms, Nottingham

Still unconventional, still under appreciated, still brilliant..

Honourable mentions to...

The Boomtown Rats, Rock City, Nottingham

We are the Boomtown Rats’.
We are magnificent’.
We are old’.

Frightened Rabbit, Rescue Rooms, Nottingham

Still excellent but not as excellent as when they seemed to just make it up as they went along.

Sigur Rós, The Civic Hall, Wolverhampton

I always swore I would not allow anything with a name like ‘Hoppípolla’ inside my head. Failed.
