Alcopopalooza updates, and fun in the sun at Truck Festival
And as the next of our summer festivals passed by with plenty of incident, and delight… I can heartily suggest that Truck was THE weekend of the Summer this far. Dodgy were back to their brilliant best (albeit looking a good 60 years old in the process), Rolo Tomassi ripped me limb from limb with their explosive performance, and only the Lemonheads really disappointed – Evan looking washed up, and appearing about as exciting as a night in with nothing but an 8 pack of Carling C2 and Series 1 of Murder She Wrote on VHS.
Meanwhile, I was delighted earlier to note the new Cut the Blue Wire tour poster on their MySpace which looks really cool, and you would be wise to take a peek at, and attend forthwith. Of most note – Saturday’s show at Alcopopalooza, which is coming together a right old treat, with loads of awesome bands, free BBQ, booze and DJs till late – so if you have any requests drop us an email with them.
Tickets can be purchased here for just six quid, and while it is with regret we have to announce the withdrawal of Secondsmile, we can happily let you know they have been replaced not only with Mike (ex 4 or 5 Magicians) from Stars and Sons (about your favourite band you’ve never heard – trust me), but also Paul Steel – who will be treating all to a 20 minute solo piano-led acoustic set.
If you haven’t heard his name before… Check out Honkin’ on my Crack Pipe… And see you Saturday!
