Rolo Tomassi and Gallows at Tramlines Festival 2010.
The New Music Stage.
At about 8:15pm, headline act for this stage Gallows take to the stage and waste no time in getting the crowd moving as they kick off their set with ‘London Is The Reason’ which is changed for one night only to ‘Sheffield Is The Reason‘. At this moment, the band have full control of the crowd and then ask them to make a massive circle pit around the war memorial near the stage. The quintet carry on their set with an old favourite ‘In The Belly Of A Shark’ and a cover of The Clash’s ‘I Fought The Law’ with extra vocals for that track coming from lead singer of the band, Sharks. Finishing up their set and closing the stage tonight and for the weekend with ‘Orchestra Of Wolves’ and a stage invasion from previous band Rolo Tomassi. An amazing way to end an awesome free night and weekend of music in the Steel City.
Also, the stage that both these bands played on was sponsered by Exposed magazine which is the magazine that i will be working for on a two week placement next month. I’m really looking forward to this placement, it should be good and will give me some experience at magazine work. I’ll more than likely blog about my work experience while I am there as well.
