The Smoggers at Weirdsville 30-4-16

music

I was looking forwards to this gig for ages! I saw Charm Bag last year at the Monster Raving Loony Party in Spain and I have bought a few Smoggers 7″ records during the last year. Laura got a babysitter and we dusted off our dancing shoes and set off for the Fiddler’s Elbow.
The support & main bands were MFC Chicken, but for me the main attraction was The Smoggers. They played solid garage how it should be – full on energy, full on fuzz, full on fun. Plus Ana Smogger is the coolest woman ever!

Wow! this was a fantastic gig! Usually when I go to bigger shows I get annoyed with everyone taking photos of each other or talking all the way through or being aggressive and pushing, but this show was perfect! Even when the support bands, The Feature and Woolf played everyone listened and got into their music. When the Julie Ruin came on everyone went mad dancing. The atmosphere was so happy. There was pretty much every woman i know who’s in a band at this gig. If only all gigs could be like this…
