Went to see Editors last night in Whelans. Apparently the gig was sold out for ages beforehand so I dropped Kate, a friend of mine who works in concert promotion, an email and she got myself and Dave on the guestlist. These guys are on the up and up and their debut album, Back Room, has been on my iRiver for a couple of weeks now. The venue itself is quite small with perhaps 200 people able to stand in it. We got in quite early so stood at the front of the stage.
Channel One were the support band and they had a great 80s style sound combining synths and strings to great effect. They played about 7 songs and then the stage was set up for Editors. Dave was the one who insisted we go to the gig in the first place and he knew a hell of a lot more about the band then I did. They started their set with Lights, a great track and one which got the crowd going straight away. Standout tracks from the night included Blood, Fingers in the Factories, Open Your Arms, All Sparks and my favourite track Bullets. Fantastic gig, these guys are gonna be big.
