I am only just about able to view pics without feeling sad.  So gutted that I missed the Borderline due to a migraine.

My review innit

I was not planning on going to Celebr8.3 as the initial announcements were for Twelfth Night and The Tangent and I am not the biggest fan of those bands.  Part of me wanted to go to support the festival and all of the people involved in running it but that part of me was outweighed by the idea of standing around for a couple of days.

Then Frost* were announced as the Sunday headliner and of course I had to go.  I toyed with the idea of just getting an evening ticket but as Galahad were opening I decided to go for the whole day.

I had seen pics posted on facebook from the Saturday and the venue had seemed packed and there was also queues to get in.  So I left early enough in order to get to the front of the queue.  When I got there I was surprised to see only a short queue (with Mr & Mrs Pedro as usual at the front).

I like Islington Assembly Rooms.  They are easy for me to get to, the stage is high so I can see at a variety of viewpoints, essential for the vertically challenged.  The sound is good and the toilets are great, especially in comparison to The Peel!  I mostly stood on the metal bit by the stage so wasnít too affected by the bouncy floor.

Galahad were amazing.  They are one of my favourite live bands at the moment.  I love to see a band enjoying themselves.  They sounded excellent too.  (And of course I have to mention that I liked Marks boots and trousers)  And then they were finished and after their encore I was just thinking, ĎGreat, now what do I do for 6 hours?í  I was confused as to why Galahad were first on and not further down the bill.  It was such a long time between Galahad and Frost* that I almost toyed with the idea of going home and coming back again. 

I have seen Sanguine Hum before so I knew what to expect.  Beautiful music expertly played but yet something is missing and it probably is just stage presence.  And they did play beautiful music very well.

Cosmograf were my unknown of the day, not sure in retrospect how they have passed me by til now. I recognised everyone on stage and have seen most of them play in other bands.  As I didnít know them, I took a break from the barrier and experienced the bouncy floor.

OMG I loved them and bought one of their albums.

Then it was time to be kicked out and after buying the album went out to see the queue already forming for the second half.  That was a dilemma.  To stand there so I could be in the front for The FaTD and Frost*, or go over to the Vineyard and see Matt & Andy.  I went to the Vineyard and it was great.  They did a very entertaining improv set, even better than last year.  After they had finished the queue wasnít any bigger anyway so I made the right choice.

It was nice to chat to Frost*ies I didnít know whilst we were waiting for The FaTD.  Even if they did moan about the price of drinks in London Smiley I had already seen the ones from the Fishtank but it actually felt quite Frost*ie free.  When I think how packed the Scala was, I canít comprehend the low turnout.  Conversations that I had during the day with non Frost*ies sort of went along the lines of, ĎI hope Jem acts sensible and just plays, that silly stuff annoys me, he is such a good keyboard player why doesnít he just play?í So I am wondering whether that has put people off seeing Frost* to a large extent.  I want both.  It isnít Frost* without some silliness.

I wasnít sure how I was going to find The Fierce and the Dead live apart from probably loud.  I like vocals so thought that an instrumental set would be a bit much.  But I was pleasantly surprised that I really enjoyed it.  Was loud tho Ė poor drums!  Leon needs to watch out there is a new drum slayer in town.

And then it was Frost* time.  Nice chap from Wales let me have his place so that I could be at the front.  (Sorry canít remember his name)  They put on a show without ironing boards or speak n spells and I think this went down very well with the aforementioned people who didnít want silliness.  Everything was of course brilliant but I think it was Milliontown that was the best of the night for me.

I can understand why this is the last Celebr8, especially given the attendance on the day I went but it is a real shame, especially with this venue which is so much nicer than the Hippodrome.  Though in the Hippodromes favour there are places to escape and sit down and have a chat.  The Celebr8 festivals certainly ended on a very high note.  Fantastic day.
