15 years ago an unknown band from Ireland released their sophomore album "All is Violent, All is Bright".
Written in uncertain times, the album captured the imagination of the underground youth and gained
the band a worldwide Cult following. 2020 will see "God Is An Astronaut" for the first time perform the entire album from beginning to end across the world.
Once I planned my long weekend in London it happened that GIAA actually scheduled a gig there. Couldn't miss it as I have already missed them a couple of times and closest was when I was visiting US. To my utter delight they decided to offer also some of their older material. So instead of listening to their last album , I had a dreamy trip through their best of :-)
I like acoustics parameters of the place they played as I did not go deaf and actually, despite the number of guitars, I did not need any earplugs. Music? Awesome. Support? Very interesting, although it seems that sequencer is a popular device nowadays. Popular and self sufficient. Experience? Totally worth it.
