There's been a really good scene over here in the UK for a few years now. bands like Tigercub, puppy, false advertising, wytches, slaves, black peaks etc. My fave bands right now for the past 2 years is Demob Happy, their last album is a slightly different vibe to their first but it's still mad heavy lol
One of my favorite memories at a show was opening for Title Fight in 2011 in Tucson, AZ in an old band of mine. If you'd like to hear the band I'm playing in now feel free to check out the link below 🙂
The band I play drums in had the chance to support SURFBORT (US) here in stockholm last thursday and as a swede living in stockholm you dont really get your hopes up for the live-atmosphere becuase here it is a very tricky crowd that oftens tries to be more cool than actually having fun. Anyway, Surfbort arrives to the venue and from START they are making us laugh, smile and just feel good about ourself and everything, such warm and genuinly good people. This mindset really set us off as a band which led to a superfun show which got a very positive feedback from the crowd even though we were the local support act! Next up was SURFBORT, I was sitting on the toilet after our gig taking care of business and suddenly I hear guitars and drums loud as **bleep**! Im running up to the stage and meet this wall of people who are going insane over this lovely band who is putting on the show of my life. I couldnt take my eyes of it, for some parts I was dancing like on a rave and for some parts I just stood there with my jaw in the ground until someone smashed me with a beer and once again I was dancing! Dani, the singer of the group is such a **bleep**ing hero, she moves the crowd sooo smooth but still with her punky **bleep** off attitude, always smiling making you think that she is just loving it, its all as real as it can be! Check them out!!
