The B-town Blog: Telling you about much more than just the music.
I was in the perfect mood for a nine inch nails gig by the time I'd got to see the supports, Cold Cave open. After showing up to the NIA, to find a Kids wrestling match, I looked at the ticket and realised for the first time that the NIA and LG arena's are not the same place. i also realised that the ticket said the show started at 7:30. It was 7:30. I ask the taxi driver next to me how much it would cost to get a lift to the LG and he says £28(!) I tell him to fuck off and end up getting there for £20. the first thing i saw when i got inside the arena was about 10 stands selling food, a SEAT and a woman trying to give me a flyer. the LG Arena is a very modern looking place, but it has a very corporate family friendly vibe to it. It was made to host Disney on ice, not heavy metal gigs.
I'm still a bit miffed that I'm there by myself, but I manage to sneak up pretty close to the front while Cold Cave are playing.
