Many would claim that to be a great band, you must be able to replicate your recorded sound perfectly in a live setting. Immediately, if that were perquisite, a great many bands would be left in the rubble; for many, it is nigh on impossible once their recordings have been layered over and over and mixed to within an inch of its life. There are other bands though, that are best relished in person. Warpaint is one of those bands. Whilst their albums are lucidly exquisite, comprehending it in person is an wholly different experience.
Do you consider yourself one of the coolest cats around? The sort that just can’t cope with the sludge of the modern day charts crammed with dub step, One Direction and crappy R’n’B? It’s all too much to bear, isn’t it? Never fear however, for now you’ve a new home in the wonderful Shake The Shack!
If there’s one thing about festivals that is inevitable (portaloos aside), it is the yearly hike in ticket prices. On the cheaper side of things are Lunar Festival (£89) and British Summer Time (between £35 and £69 per day!), whilst at the other end of the scale we find Reading & Leeds (£213), Wireless (£210-£172), Latitude (£195.50) and Download (£180). Add on the complimentary transport costs, sleeping (what sleeping?) equipment, and the overpriced food and it’s beginning to get a bit much on the overstretched pursestrings of your average Jane and Joe.
Following an already successful first night at The Oobleck last month, The Oobleck Oompah and beer keller returns following last week’s Supersonic Festival for round two on Friday 6th, with a World Cup special event on Saturday 14th June!
