Comments : My very first show at the new Casa Del Popolo and my first RGC show. I was looking forward to see them live, even though it took me a while to get into the first album. I thoroughly enjoyed the concert. It was quite different from Low, despite 2 common members. The setlist was great, with the songs played in quick succession. Everyone seemed to have fun on and in front of the stage. I also enjoyed the atmosphere of the new Casa which is right next door: same ambiance and décor as before. I found the café atmosphere much less inviting, especially the 45 minute wait for a sandwich. Still, a nice evening out.

Saxon Shore - Sonic - January 10th 2010











Band : Saxon Shore
Venue : Sonic
Town (country) : Lyon (France)
Date : January 10th 2010
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : My first concert in almost a month, mainly due to a very snowy Europe. A nice post-rock act, with a guitar sound very reminiscent of Mogwai. Perhaps not the most original set, as with most bands of the genre, but still a nice concert to start off the year.
