July was another quiet month for me shooting gigs. I took a week off work at the start of the month to travel some of the Wild Atlantic Way which I'll blog about in another post, but he rest of the month seemed to just be more festivals. Festivals I wasn't attending as sad as that is. One gig I had on my radar to cover for The Thin Air was Popicalia Returns, the 22nd Popicalia gig after an absence of 2 1/2 years, featuring Squarehead, Land Lovers & Ginnels. I'll not rehash what was said in the review so you can click here to have a read of that. It was my first time in Bello Bar so I was glad for a change of scenery from my usual haunts.

Non photo related, I ventured over to Leeds to see The Cribs in Leeds Millennium Square. Danny Payne has great coverage of that gig that I'm very jealous of. It was an epic gig, with support from local acts plus... Thurston Moore!! Other gigs I went to but didn't shoot were Pixies in Iveagh Gardends & Longitude. I headed along the Sunday to see Christine & the Queens, Kurt Vile and The National. Christine is someone I have to try photograph when she returns.
