Definitely. Strobe lights are fine if used once or twice every few songs but that was a dangerous amount (not literally, unless you have epilepsy mind).


I do have epilepsy! just not strobe affected, but I figured last night would have been a good time to start being affected by that strobe!, man it was melting my face!!!

It would have also added to the excitement of a gig, with people exclaiming that it was down to sheer awesomeness of Shambles and Eating Only Apples being played that caused it.

I always think it's just me who doesn't like the strobe lights, coz I shut my eyes and don't see what everyone else is doing! I can't watch it, I already had a headache and it doesn't help!

It was good for Stuck In My Throat because it reminded me of the video. But after that it got shit.

Still though, long Shambles > Death by strobe light

long shambles = yessssssssssssssssssssss

was a fun night Smile despite being ill as hell Sad

baddies were so dissappointing for me, I had heard good things, and loved Engerica, but good god they were really lame.

Revolt were an even bigger joke.

Good thing Reuben played such an awesome set Smile

and if Cities really is going to be a single, fucking yesssssssssssssssssssssssss

I thought sound was fine.

Was a very good reuben gig. And it wasn' the same shambles as heard at the westy.

The only change i would have made was to not play it's all about control (i just really hate that song).

Excessive strobing lol, the frequency of the strobe was at points so high that it wasn't even strobing it was just like turning a really bright light on the band. Lights guy needs more inspiration.

The set list was top knotch, really loved Dusk at the end and as ever a lovely mix of new/old/vfvd stuff.

and err

LONG SHAMBLES ( i know i've already mentioned it).

I'm not reading this thread, I'd just like to point out that I intensely dislike you all right now.

Kthx.

and scared of the police, ahhhhhhh


also, last song, turned around and yelled a line at some guy, reckonised him from somewhere. someone on here? looked a bit like aidan.


That could have been me, but to be honest I was turning round and shouting lyrics at most people. In-fact seeing as aidan has long hair it wasn't me.

Maybe Cap-down he has long hair.

Anyway, one of the best, probably the second best Reuben gig I have been to. Shambles was epic, it was an extended version, and it wasn't the same one as at the westy because I was there too. Very Happy

I've been waiting for them to play best enemies the whole time I've been following, it lived up to the standards I was expecting. I Agree with Rich the venue was brilliant, the atmosphere was the best it's been at a Reuben gig, no dykes aggressively moshing, just everyone really getting into it.

Anyone else think that shitty support band's lead singer sounded like Avril Lavigne? I was so disapproving of their set, it added comedy to the evening.

My burps smell like burger king, I couldn't resist at waterloo. Embarassed




didnt have long hair, i haven't seen real life aidan, meant aidan's avatar.

Great gig on Wednesday.

Disappointed by the reaction to Revolt on these boards though.

The lead singer had an incredible voice, and, for her age, a very confident front person. They were all very talented musicians, particularly the guitarists on the right hand of the stage.

Yes it didn't quite gel and it needed a bit of a polish, but the potentially of something viable was there and it is still very early in the life span of the band.

I thought the Baddies got better as the set went on and there last 3 songs were a bit different and all the better for it. Looking forward to reaquainting myself with their music in April.

Reuben were awesome. Nice to see an almost completely different set from that from the last Mean Fiddler gig, and the gig felt more intemate and "for the fans" because of it.

Blatantly.

Can anyone shed some light on whether it was THE LONG SHAMBLES or whether it was merely an extendo jobby like at the Westy, without the other lyrics in?

it had extra lyrics in it, but I dunno if it was THE long Shambles as I've never heard the demo or whatever was floating around.
