after the monster celebration of all things Dublin Hardcore i flew out to the UK with the best Glenn i know.It was an early flight that had me fuckered cause Special Ed and Lee were singing NOFX loudly and drunkenly till i fell asleep.Fuck that.
I love hanging out with Glenn though,he is seriously one of the best dudes.

On arriving in London i rendezvous'd with Mr.Alex and we set off on our way to the venue.His iphone's maps went a little crazy for a while but we found the venue by way of a cafe that sold Calpico which is one of my favourite drinks from Japan :)

The pub the show was in was awesome and had an old husky walking around.They also had vegan pizza that was awesome.But first thing was first,i was going to sleep for an hour or two on the floor of the venue

Right Idea
were playing their UK shows with the awesome Times Together which is refreshing to see an appropiate support band being chosen,it doesn't happen often.Also playing the London show were Tremors,who oddly enough last time i saw them was in my house about 9 hours ago, and Coming Through.They are the newest band joining the UK youth crew movement.My good friend Gabor sings for them.This was their first show and despite horrible sound situations they were pretty good.Turning Point cover too,can't go wrong.Also Atilla,their guitarist,is the new Porcell.Believe

Times Together and Right Idea were actually so good at this.Being tired wasn't an option.People in London don't move at smaller shows like this as i learned from the past and this was no exception.Fuck that.I danced a bit and had a great time singing along to two great bands.There was a logistics problem organising who went where and with what gear after the show but i just hung with the RI guys.They were so nice.
We said our goodbyes and headed to our various locations of sleep.

Headed back into London to get the bus to Notts and saw some class buildings

Three hours sleep to Notts was amazing.Almost as amzing as the flier for the show

What can i say?im a sucker for copy and pastes shit like this.If you disagree with me mail me at and we can talk about this and how wrong you are.

The Notts show was awesome and Times Together covered Unity and Chain,so good.People were stoked to see Right Idea.We had hung out in Nandos(delish) and after sharing toilet destroying stories,Nate, we were friends.
From the first song 'Alert!' it was just such a good time.There were pile ons(small ones) and great singalongs.I fucking love that band.They did the Wide Awake intro and covered 'Glue'.That to me is perfection.

Overall this was the best weekend ever.I got to hang with some friends i never really get to see and i got to see Right Idea who blew me away.The only downer was i had to get off the plane and head straight to work to do a 13 hour shift.It was hell but i knew it was worth it for good times with friends new and old.

Gotta stick together
Gotta stick together
Gotta stick together

Like Glue Like Crew
