Rock City last night

13 Apr – Arctic Monkeys, Reverend and The Makers

I'd never been to Rock City in Nottingham before last night, but I'll be going again.

I wonder if it was the venue that was so good, or the performance given by Arctic Monkeys. I'm guessing it was probably a combination of both. They were so much better last night than when I saw them in Manchester in February though.

First support was Reverend and the Makers. The Reverend is class. And strangely attractive. The crowd were relatively quiet for their set although there were a few fans I spotted who were singing along. Myself included. I'd been looking forward to seeing Reverend since coming across them through this here site and I was dead chuffed to find they were supporting the Monkeys, I'd been looking forward to seeing them last night and I wasn't disappointed. They finished their set with He Said He Loved Me and it was a good one to finish on. A great little set.

I have no idea who the next support were. But they were crap and terribly emo. Bollocks to that.
Oh, here you go, they were actually called Little Flames.

Arctic Monkeys though, they rocked that place. Seriously. They opened with Riot Van and the rest of the setlist ran:
View From The Afternoon
Cigarette Smoker Fiona
Mardy Bum
Still Take You Home
Who The Fuck Are Arctic Monkeys
I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor
Perhaps Vampires is a bit strong but
Dancing Shoes
Leave Before The Lights Come On
When the Sun Goes Down
Fake Tales of San Francisco
From the Ritz to the Rubble
A Certain Romance

So a couple of new tracks in there too from the forthcoming EP.

Man, they were awesome. The place was jumping last night. Fantastic.
I've woken up so sore this morning it hurts to move. But I wouldn't swap it for anything.

I took a couple of videos on my phone, not full songs, but they're here if anyone wants a look. Quality isn't too bad either.

    hey I was at the Glasgow gig on Friday! They were bloody amazing, weren't they! Alex got hit with a sock just as he started When The Sun Goes Down! Reverend And The Makers are absolutely amazing too, my mates thought I was crazy knowing all the words the support band's songs already as well as Arctics. Little Flames sucked here as well, she just stood there..........
