Re: Wales Goes Pop

They were due to post stage times last night, but said on Facebook last night that they had delayed posting them till tonight. I'm going on the Friday, haven't been to Cardiff for over 20 years either. Venue looks nice from the website, bit of seating round the edge of the main venue by the looks of...

Re: Leicester Indiepop Alldayer, 23rd March

I had a great time too, enjoyed every band. Owl & Mouse were a highlight for me, never heard of them before and thought they were great. Really hope you do this again next year, a highlight of the Leicester gig calendar for me, so many thanks for putting in on.

Re: Leicester Indiepop Alldayer, 23rd March

Newarke Street York Road Leicestershire Leicester LE2 7AD is where I normally park, less than 5 mins walk and it's only £2 in the evening. Looks like it's £3.80 for the day on Saturday if this site is correct http://en.parkopedia.co.uk/parking/carpark/newarke_street/le2/leicester/ Edit It's accessib...

Re: Spk School + Sweet Nowts + U'studies + MilkyW Nottm, 2nd

Cheers for putting this on, enjoyed all the bands and liked the venue and will be back for more in the future. Shame I was driving and that they had unexpectedly closed the M1 on the way back to Leicester so ended up going home via Derby!

a layer of chips wrote:First band should be on at 8.30pm, and you'll be able to get in, don't worry.

Hope you can make it!
Blimey, that was quick! Cheers for the info, definitely be there weather permitting, really enjoyed the Spook School at Indietracks and like the sound of the rest of the bill.

Re: Spk School + Sweet Nowts + U'studies + MilkyW Nottm, 2nd

Coming up from Leicester for this with a mate. I have a tentative plan to get the most out of the trip and go and see Spotlight Kid supporting someone at The Rescue Rooms first as I've been advised they should be on 8-8:30. Couple of questions. I've not been to the Chameleon before, what time is the...

Re: Favourite 2012 Albums

Top album for me by a mile was Canines by Shrag, I just don't get bored of it, it's got the lot. Earlier this year Islet's full debut was on non stop, I knew they were great live but surprised how listenable their songs were on record. Tender Trap's album also got a lot of plays for me.

Re: This Many BFs/Cats:for:peru/Frantic Drift, Leicester 16/

I'll be there! Was planning to go and see Novella, but they've cancelled so this seems like a top alternative, recommend this to people having seen TMBFs at Indietracks.

Edit - was a good night, cheers for putting it on.

Re: Indietracks 2012 Memories and Photos

Our first indietracks and what a cracking time my wife and I had. Thanks to everyone involved and to all the gudiance/help from people here in advance. Driving up the M1 stuck in traffic in the rain with both of us feeling under the weather I wondered whether my expectations were too high, but as so...

Re: General Stuff People Want to Know

You're already too late. The rest of us are sat here. It gets pretty busy, so you probably want to go and see the band before and stay in your seat. It can get quite sweaty in there, though, so wear a light chemise. Cheers for the response! Not sure I've got a chemise so I'll add that to the list o...

Re: General Stuff People Want to Know

Another question from this eager first timer. Just trying to get my band schedule sorted and I was wondering how crowded does the Church get, i.e. do you need to get there really early to get in or can you wander up 5 minutes before and get in no problem? I know it depends on the popularity of the b...

Re: Indietracks 2012 Compilation now available!

Got to say this compilation is fantastic, I would never have got around to checking out all the bands any other way. Only problem is there are too many strong tracks on it, so it hasn't helped much in deciding which bands to give a miss. Many thanks for putting it together.

Re: Ripley Premier Inn

Thanks to everyone for the speedy responses. Thanks also for the map as well Leon, really appreciated. All sounds like a doddle compared to some festivals, can't wait now and I've been blasting the sampler CDs the last few days struggling to decide which bands to cross off my list.

Our first indietracks and we're at the Premier Inn. We'll be pushed for time a bit Friday night and hope to get to see all the bands, so I was wondering how long it takes to walk from the Premier Inn to the site and also does it normally take much time queuing to get tickets exchanged for wrist band...
