A Little Bit Of Dot To Dot Nottingham

Ruen Brothers and Myself Post Show… Review below!

16:30-17:00: Ruen Brothers – Jongleurs

Ruen BrothersWith a late afternoon slot, the young brothers took to the Jongleurs stage, with a vast amount of confidence and style. The band have recently had their track ‘Walk Like A Man’ given the accolade of Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World, something they were rather excited/proud to tell the crowd. Highlights for me had to be ‘Cry Wolf’ and ‘Hold Me Tight’ that both, although start slow, have an incredible build up that was swallowed whole by the crowd. However, the peak of the set came from the final track, ‘Aces’, a song that has an infectious riff and powerful chorus.

The band left the stage with turtlenecks a significantly darker shade of grey and they gave it their all, and with a packed out Jongleurs, it is safe to say that Ruen Brothers are going to have a big following soon. An Impact exclusive, as well, is that the pair will be doing a homecoming show around the 20th June, in Scunthorpe. Although the details are vague as of yet, from their set at Dot to Dot, I definitely won’t be missing it.



22:15-23:00: The 1975 – Rock City Main Hall

The 1975Rock City’s final act, The 1975, played to a full house. The spirit of the crowd was so high, and from the off, the Manchester band had them in the palm of their hand.

With the recent success of ‘Chocolate’, it was unsurprising to see the response The 1975 got. The full extent of their support was seen when they played ‘The City’, a song with a drum beat more infectious than the sunshine spirit outside on the streets of Nottingham.

Afterwards, the band tweeted “Nottingham. That was the best show of our lives”, and from the smile on lead singer Matthew Healy’s face you could tell the band loved every second. A run of four songs at the end of the set was the pinnacle, with hit single ‘Chocolate’ coming after ‘Robbers’ then followed by ‘Sex’ and the highlight of the show ‘You’. Declaring to the crowd “Fuck it”, Healy jumped into the crowd, embracing a gig better than their recent shows at the Emirates Stadium and Radio 1′s Big Weekend.

With an album coming out in September, expect a lot more hits from this exciting new band on the block.

And here’s a shot of Dry The River to finish…

The Response To Thatcher

Stupendous exuberant flaunting,
Creating accentuated dull.
Whilst once again the mourning,
Portraying a cynical lull.
Labour gaining conservative gain,
With acceptance a blur,
Honouring nothing or something,
Is it topic only to deter?
