The best live music is like a drug. It’s great at the time but leaves you craving for more afterwards. That’s how I’m feeling today, after the CTC gig at the Union last night.
I’ve never seen anything like it there before. The mix of people was great, the sound and lighting superb and it all contributed to the great atmosphere there. We weren’t so keen on Tom Vek, but Chikinki rocked and the Coopers played over an hour of generally damn good stuff while the audience indulged in a mixture of moshing and crowd-surfing down below them. I need to go to see more random bands to give me something to compare this with, but for now it seems like a good start 🙂
Oh, and perhaps the next time I can try a bit harder not to leave my camera in Dave’s car, especially considering the superb opportunity I’d have had to take some good photos from our vantage point above the Marketplace. I’m a bit pissed off at myself for that!
