MAY already seems like a distant memory, yet one event will last in our minds for the rest of the year.
This was, of course, Blaenavon’s headline gig at Newcastle’s Think Tank!
The night was already going to be a success when support came from local bands the Pale White and Lucky Punks.
The latter of these two actually showed a lot of professionalism on stage. A band, even in their early stages, who already show signs of greatness.
Their track “Sleeping Dogs” was a real treat, with a great bassline and a fiery attitude this is a track you must hear.
Of course this isn’t saying that the Pale White weren’t also fantastic. They were another band who really put on a show and performed a great set. For a band who are also just starting out, they too are showing great potential.
However it was Blaenavon who were headlining the show and they definitely proved that they have come a long way to get to where they are now.
They entered the stage with confidence and broke into their powerful “Hell is my Head”.
Blaenavon mixed their fan favourites like “Into the Night” with new songs such as “Take Care” and “Orthodox Man” to rev everybody up for their upcoming debut album.
The band finished on the tracks “I Will Be the World” and “Prague” which saw lead singer Ben Gregory jump into the pumped up crowd. Whilst drummer Harris was joined by bassist Frank to do a special duo drum piece.
All in all this was the third time Blaenavon have played Newcastle in the last year. But this was their first headline gig and to fans it will go down as one of their most rememberable.
