Filtering by Tag: The Wedding Present


I was shocked and disappointed in myself that I haven't posted these videos yet (as well as posted a new mix since February, but that's another story). The past 2 months have been a flurry of changes and busy times. But now, as I have a free few minutes, I'm righting the ship and sharing with you...

The Wedding Present, live at The Bell House in Brooklyn on March 21, 2012 performing their 1991 classic album Seamonsters.  I got 3 great videos of some of the songs from the set, here's the first 2 songs off the album, "Dalliance" and "Dare":

The Wedding Present are one of those Brit Pop bands that was I way late to the game on. Already firmly established in the 1980s and achieving legendary status in the 1990s, I didn't really tune into them until the early 2000s.  Luckily, they've since reformed and have been putting out new material (which is awesome), but these nostalgia tours of playing classic albums are always fun and hard to pass up the chance to see, especially when they play songs like "Corduroy":

This show in particular was a blast because I was able to meet up with some of my longest and bestest friends and had an nice little group to hang with. So much of the live show experience is the people you see the show with.  Of course the band will probably be good. A band like the Wedding Present are pros and David Gedge is a stellar front man,  but having friends around you who also are as psyched to be there as you are makes the night that much more memorable and awesome. 

That said, it's somewhat fitting that the last song I got on video was The Wedding Present's classic single "You Should Always Keep In Touch With Your Friends"...
