Something Else Somewhere Else – Photographs Saturday

Hi folks, I hope you are all having a great day.  I thought I would share a few of my photographs from Saturday at last weekends Something Else Somewhere Else festival.

I hope you enjoy them.

Something Else Somewhere Else – Friday Photo’s

The past weekend saw me head off to Duns Tew in Oxfordshire for my third festival of the season.  As you are probably aware I love grass roots festivals and the Something Else Festivals are top of my list.  I simply love them, it is like a gathering of family in a field whilst surrounded by great music and fuelled by beer and cider.

These photo’s are all from Friday and you just have to check out Gaz Brookfield’s new biggest fan.  Look out for some more photographs and a full review in the next day or two.

British Metalcore sensations ASKING ALEXANDRIA have announced two intimate shows ahead of their scheduled appearances at READING & LEEDSfestivals this summer. The band will give die hard fans the chance to see them up close and personal at two shows in Southampton and London on 15th and 16th August. Guitarist BEN BRUCE states:

Bowling for Soup – O2 Bournemouth 12 Feb 2016

Friday night saw me head off to Bournemouth O2 Academy for an evenings entertainment that I confidently predict will not be bettered this year.  Bowling For Soup,  The Dolly Rots, Lacey and MC Lars put on a very special evening of pop-punk entertainment.  Here are a handful of my photographs from the evening.  I will be putting a full review on louder Than War later today.  Be sure to check it out.

Greenleaf – Brixton O2 Academy

Greenleaf is a Swedish band created, as a sideproject, in late 1999/early 2000 by Tommi Holappa (Dozer), Daniel Lidén (Demon Cleaner) and Bengt Bäcke (record producer/studio engineer, Dozer, Demon Cleaner, Lowrider). In 2003 Daniel joined Dozer, making 3 of the 4 Dozers members also members of Greenleaf.  

I caught their short set on Saturday evening where they were supporting Clutch and Bombus at Brixton academy.  Whilst they only had a 30-minute set I was more than impressed by what I saw.

Sadly the lighting at the Academy  was pretty dire for both support bands so i apologise for the quality of my photos.  Greenleaf are very much a band in the finest tradition of Scandanavian rock bands.  They are well worth checking out should you get the opportunity.

Check out the video to get a flavour of what you are missing.
