Chapter 51: New Music, Gallery Circus

So I decided to take a trip around the UK, visiting Newcastle (North England), onwards to Belfast, Ireland and ending in Edingburgh, Scotland (don’t ask what happened to Wales.) This is where I discovered some new music, Gallery Circus.

As I am on my way from London to Newcastle my friend asks “what shall we do tonight? I found a gig happening that is meant to be good” “yes sure, lets do it” I say. Before I know it the taxi driving is dropping us off in some random industrial looking carpark with dodgy looking buildings around with lots of cool graffiti. We couldnt help but wonder if we were in the right spot.

Newcastle, Party Town

Newcastle is crazy for its night life. There are more pubs and nightclubs then there are shopping centres and general stores. Sundays, Newcastle holds the quietest streets I have ever seen.

We found the “venue” we were looking for called the Think Tank and walked to the bar, as you do. We ordered a jack daniels and coke, only to be asked if we wanted a double or triple shot. TRIPLE!!! Are you kidding?!!! who does triple shots?! So as per my rule “Do the region” we ordered triple shots!

The band we were meant to be seeing were called Virginmarys, we had no idea what to expect from them, we had never even heard any of their songs but they had good reviews. When the first band came on I found myself thinking, hey these guys are pretty good! wonder if they are the band. They weren’t but infact we thought they were better! So I felt it was my duty to show them off to the world… well, my blog readers anyway. Introducing Gallery Circus…

This is my favourite of there songs, it reminds me of my first night in Newcastle every time.

Feel free to check out their website, let me know your thoughts on the band. Gallery Circus also have a fantastic blog with some pretty cool photo montages and an interesting read on the states.

I guess it is only fair that I put a video of the band we went to see as well. I personally preferred the first, supporting band but I would love to know your thoughts on the two of them

They have a good following, but were just not my preferred band

And this is their website

Stay tuned for more on the rest of the UK trip, it was certainly one to remember!
