Catfish and the Bottlemen

Holy Shit! (Ok that was a rather passive aggressive opening to a blog post) That is the only way to describe the other night at the Catfish and the Bottlemen gig in Manchester and was generally the words that ran through my head all night as I was serenaded by Van McCann.  Well can you call it serenaded when he's singing to millions of other fans, errmm maybe not but I'm certain that he was solely singing to me at one point, he made eye contact with me and I think I might have died a little inside.

So as you can probably tell from my above response, I was sooooooo excited to see them live again because they absolutely blew my mind the first few times. I was waiting for the day to come around for what felt like forever and tbf i'm not going to talk about it in too much detail as my previous post talks a bit more about my day. But anyway, this post was purely to show off my photos of Van as I feel like he deserves an entire post dedicated to him and the band. Lmao I'm such a fangirl and I'm not even ashamed.

If you haven't already, please please pleaaasseee go and give them a listen, they're honestly so fantastic and I can guarantee you that you will be obsessed with them. They have such an edgy rock sound and their lyrics are just always so raw and relatable. Warning: Expect to listen to their albums non-stop for the rest of your life!

Gigs Cure Everything

So last week I had the absolute pleasure of seeing one of my favourite bands for the third time, Catfish and the Bottlemen. This time however, it was particularly special as it was the night before my birthday which meant I got to sing my heart out to the beautiful Van McCann all the way through to my birthday the next day. 

The gig was absolutely insane and it the venue was crazy, it took place in Victoria Warehouse, Manchester,  which is absolutely huge and it just had a really edgy vibe. IT was so great as well because my two friends came to stay with me in Manchester and it was just such a brilliant day, I just wanted to relive the whole night over and over again.

Anyway, relating to my blog title, ' Gigs Cure Everything', basically this is something I 100% believe, I mean if you're having a shit time or you're stressed about anything or everything, if you go to a gig, you will feel so refreshed and at peace with the world. Lmao that was so deep hahaa! But I mean it, like you just forget everything and you get to spend your evening covered in beer; singing your heart out with strangers and getting bruised to pieces in a mosh pit. I know that doesnt sound glamorous but honestly it's the perfect remedy. 

Above, are just a few photos of me and my friends having a whale of a time last Wednesday, slightly drunk and prior to becoming drenched in beer and sweat but hey, it was the best night in so long and it was much needed amidst the stress of uni. 

Get yourself to a gig!
