Gig Review - You Me At Six

Friday 6th March 2009 @ Academy, Bristol
With Support From: Emarosa, The Spill Canvas

Well, what a night! 3 outstanding bands who truly blew the place to pieces! They drew in a young crowd who were full of energy making it a very exciting evening.

First up, six piece Emarosa from Kentucky, USA started with a bang. The boys were right on it tonight as their beatdowns pounded through the speakers, sending everyone insane on the dance floor. They got the whole room moving, arms and fists flying everywhere. The audience was warmed up nicely for the next act The Spill Canvas.

These four boys from South Dakota, USA really picked up the pace as front man Nick Thomas ordered the crowd to start circle pits, jump high and go crazy – so we did just that! As everyone was going mental, you lost balance and got carried with the crowd as everyone’s feet lifted from the floor. They played a very enthusiastic set and interacted with the crowd amazingly well. Towards the end of their performance they pulled out a few classics which got everyone singing along.

Headlining tonight were the almighty You Me At Six all the way from Surrey! They were the only English band playing tonight but they completely dominated the show. Both supports acts were bigging up the Surrey boys all night during their sets which built up a massive atmosphere which was certainly maintained throughout the show. Both new and old songs were sung as vocalist Josh Franceschi loved the fact the audience were screaming just as loud as him! Chants echoed around the venue from fans screaming for more, clapping theirs hands and stomping their feet, making as much noise as possible to entice the band back on. Their big hits including Save It For The Bedroom were saved for the encore as not one person in the room stood their with their mouth shut!

Overall tonight was epic! All 3 bands put on amazing performances that just blew us away and did not fail to live up to their hyped up names. Keep on rocking boys!
