Our friends at the Wedgewood Rooms have lined up a fantastic hat trick of gigs this week. It has been hard to motivate myself to leave the house with all of this horrendous wet and cold weather we’ve been having but the opportunity to see local bands Kassassin Street, Blackfoot Circle and Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon is certainly worth braving the winter weather for!
During 2016 Rowan, Nathan, Ryan, Andy and Tom have cemented their place as Portsmouth’s number one band with huge performances at Common People, Victorious Festival and Southsea Fest.
Earlier this week the boys released ‘Do or Die.’ This is their first release to be taken from their forthcoming EP which is due for release early next year. If you would like to get your hands on a copy of then you can do so over on iTunes and Spotify right now.
Sadly for those who have been don’t have a ticket for tonight’s show, it sold out a long time ago! Fear not because they will also be playing a short journey away in Southampton’s The Joiners on Dec 14th. Tickets are limited so if you are interested then I’d advise that you get yours asap.
After supporting Catfish and the Bottlemen in the United States and even more recently the Sunshine Underground at the Wedgewood Rooms last month, Blackfoot Circle return to headline their own show.
On Friday morning the band will also be releasing their latest track online, which is titled ‘What You Need.’ The track was a collaborative piece and was written by Jack, Jake and Grant The track itself is all about the struggle to coexist and overcoming together. If you wanna hear it and live along with other new material then there are limited number of tickets available from the Wedgewood Rooms box office.
Brian Fallon is no stranger to the Wedgewood Rooms. I’ve been fortunate enough to see him take the stage in 2009 with his band The Gaslight Anthem and during the Revival Tour in 2011. This time Fallon is going it alone and will be treating the crowd to tracks from his debut solo album ‘Painkillers’ which was released in March on Island Records. The album contains hints of his trademark rock, alt country, anthemic punk and Fallon’s trademark vocals.
The album has been a long time coming with Fallon having already completed some of the tracks back in 2014. I for one am glad that he finally got around to sharing it.
There are a handful of tickets available from the Wedgewood Rooms’ box office and if you are a fan of his fellow New Jerseyite Bruce Springsteen then you really should be there this Sunday night! Please note that the original tickets for the Pyramids are still valid for this show.
