Rated 5 out of 5 by The Firework from Best small gig of 2016 I'd not seen Yak before and my friend told me he'd seen them twice and they were 'Immense', he wasn't wrong! They will have the same rise as Arcade Fire and be headlining festivals in a few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cathalc08 from Insane Yak are immensely good live. Incredible energy. Everything from stage dives to playing half a song standing on the bar. LOUD, Heavy, Brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PurplrPiggie from Best gig of the year! (and possibly one of my favourite ever) I went to see Yak, having seen them perform at Green Man festival, with my friend. The venue was downstairs at Clwb, which I find much more intimate and provides a better atmosphere than the upstairs space. The support band - Swedish Death Candy, started off the night with some psychadelic raucous noise, which went down really well. I particularly liked the accompanying swirly ink art that was being projected onto the background screen, a different colour/style for every song, thanks to an auburn lady in a hip 60's paisly dress. Before Yak came on, the lead singer decided to inform me & my friend that the rest of his band were busy being sick in the loos, following too much gin! Rock & roll! Yak started with some feedback & drums before the singer started shouting into the mic. Immediately an enthusiastic mosh started up. It wasn't long before the singer joined in with the crowd, along with his guitar! Crowd surfing ensued and lots of trampling over amps. The music was great, it had melody and a variety of sound levels, so not just shouting to distortion, although that was part of it, one couldn't help but start nodding and jumping along in time. Towards the end, the singer gave 2 guitars to the crowd while he continued to crowd surf and shout into the mic. It made one lucky guy's day, who looked like he had gone to heaven, playing a guitar (unplugged) as if his life depended on it! The evening ended with the singer retrieving his guitars, only to throw them at the drum kit, knocking several things flying! What a night!
