King Tut’s has certainly earned it’s reputation over the years, but at the same time it’s also been years since I’ve seen a gig worthy of that reputation in King Tuts. Last night turned out to be one of those gigs.
Swallows are usually a frantic and unpredictable live force. Last night however they were intense, menacing and powerfully dynamic, without sacrificing any of their usual explosive energy. It was a totally different vibe from the band, but it was thrilling. I wish more gigs were like this.
Aslo, top marks to the dude who set up the lights in the Tuts. They were spot on for shooting and atmosphere and featured zero disgusting sensor burning red lights. Cheers bro!
