The Quireboys - Friday 25th March - Islington Academy

An electric evening of the Quireboys in Islington was preceded by darts of an amazingly good standard in The Carpenters Arms (Kings Cross) beforehand. We'd managed to skip the first 2 bands on the bill, but were too early to avoid the 3rd, meaning a trip to the Mezzanine level bar to rest our legs for a bit. I don't quite see the point of these multi-band bills. Stick to one support - it is plenty!

Back downstairs and you know what you are going to get with the Quireboys - good time Rock & Roll and a great set. The extended bill meant a shorter set than normal, but this was still value for money in my book. Let's hope the recent increased activity of the band continues for a while yet.
