Well, that was it, the last gig of 2014. At last I have seemed to get my live music mojo back and have absolutely LOVED this years’ gigs/concerts.
So, the year finished with Augustines at the Roundhouse in London. Having seen them in Oxford in March, which was one of the best gigs that I have ever witnessed (including the continuation of the gig outside on the Cowley Road, then pledging to Kickstarter for the documentary Rise: The Story of Augustines my friend Penny and I decided it would be great to go and see their biggest UK gig (that was also being filmed as part of the doc!) Go Penny! I wouldn’t have gone had you not suggested it and boy, was it worth it!
Luckily there are lots of reviews online, so you can read from the ecstatic to the okay. I will put links at the bottom of the page.
So, you really don’t have to read much of mine. HOWEVER, once again, their communication with the audience really is phenomenal. At first, I was a bit worried, Billy didn’t seem to connect with the audience the way he did at Oxford, but then when he started to talk, he was obvious he was losing his voice and funnily enough it seemed to get stronger as the gig went on.
The audience went wild and the encore, that lasted an hour!, included the boys singing from the balcony (excuse the poor photo) and in the middle of the crowd before they finished to rapturous appreciation.
