Wonderful night out at the Brudenell
It was always going to be a hard slog of a drive up to Leeds from Derby on a Monday night straight after a day at work but the prospective rewards were always the incentive.
I'm more than delighted that the show put on by both Beak> and Snapped Ankles truly exceeded my expectation.
It was my 1st time seeing Beak> having followed their recorded music for many years and their live performance on the night supplied the final pieces of my appreciation by adding the visual element.
Having said that, the excellent sound quality achieved by the band and the venue really needs to be mentioned.
Snapped Ankles provided an original and energetic set that successfully drew everyone into their performance by literally being playing amongst the audience with all equipment in the standing area rather than on the stage. They were a real treat and I'll be keeping an eye out for them playing closer to home (for me).
It only took 1h 20 mins on the way back home but it seemed much less than that as I was still on the post-gig crest of a wave.
Special mention to The Brudenell Social too - this was my second visit this year and I'll definitely be coming back to thus fantastic venue
