The Owl Sanctuary has certainly improved since the last time I ventured there, and it was certainly a good thing, the sound being an excellent improvement, with every band sounding pretty damn awesome tonight, with some great bands coming back through Norwich with some awesome sets.
Swim Good were truly great, with I think a slightly drunken swagger, Swim Good really had a great energy with some catchy songs to really begin the show with, and were an excellent choice to open the show with, and with a growing following, they are certainly a band beginning to go places, and one to watch in the future. Insaniac was an odd choice of local support and were very good, having a heavy sound and some excellent vocals, some great drum beats, they’re set though out of place was executed well.
Yearbook, last seen supporting Lower Than Atlantis last year, are still great live, and if they put in the energy that other bands did, they would be excellent to watch, with some great songs, a way with a guitar that makes for interesting melodies and tracks that are easy to join with, if they had more energy on stage, this band would be on to a winner.
Max Raptor burst on to stage and really took the gig to the audience with some enthusiasm, they certainly know how to put on a live show, and that certainly was made clear tonight, getting into the crowd and finally really getting the gig-goers moving – something I hope Yearbook took some notice of. With a mixture of old and new tracks, ‘Concrete’ one of the new tracks was awesome and opening the gig with a song like ‘The Great and The Good’ was a really good choice, and certainly worth seeing live, if you haven’t already.
A great show with a lot of great talent, certainly worth seeing, there were some great highlights last night, and if you can see them on this short tour, it would be well worth it, it’s only £4 come on!
