Mon 7 Jun – Wheatus
I can't quite remember the exact details of the gig (so the setlist might be a bit off, but I'm certain its almost exact), but man, was it one hell of a gig.
I remember when my dad gave me a mixtape he made of Green Day, Wheatus, Blur and Nirvana almost 10 years ago, as an attempt to get me back on track with structured music (after a few years of being polluted by pop of the 90s, I'd long forgotten R.E.M., The Smiths and the majority of the 80s post-punk, synthpop and alt-rock that I'd been brought up on beforehand), and it worked, I fell in love with Wheatus for years, but only recently began listening to them again; to then see these guys live was really fantastic, a life goal definitely accomplished.
Even though I laugh at Welsh pride a lot, I think even Wheatus were amazed with the participation of the crowd on a bunch of songs, and simply had to compliment the Welsh and their passion for.. singing, throughout the gig. …
