The really great thing about music reviewing (esp gigs) is you get to see some acts you never would have thought to get to – like The Staves.
The really dumb thing about music reviewing (esp gigs) is you go along, you review the show, rave about it, place it as one of the best things you’ve seen that year (or maybe ever) and then you promptly forget all about the band. And don’t listen to them. Barely even think of them. At all. Until one day you see the stub of the ticket and you think about how lucky you were and what a weird grumble it might be to say you’re bored of gigs and have seen everything. And heard most things.Stubs is an occasional feature here at Off The Tracks – looking back through the ticket-stub box and remembering how the show went down.
