Gigs In London Tonight 27/2/18


"From the new to the old - in fact 39 years ago to be precise - and 'Somebody Calling' from 'In City Dreams' - which still had that great groovy late '70's feel about it - think Average White Band - although the spine of the set understandably turned back to 'BOS' with the up-tempo slide and chops of 'Day Of The Eagle' metamorphosing into the classic opening of the title track with its unmistakeable riff - an iconic tipping point for me - a bit like seeing Skynyrd doing 'Free Bird' live - this was indeed Rock history." That was part of our review of Robin Trower's Islington Assembly Hall gig in October 2016, and with two other tempting gigs in a very cold London tonight, we've plumped for Robin again at the same venue supported by Sari Schorr - the other two gigs being Xander And The Peace Pirates (Video Of The Day) at The 100 Club and Industrial noise-Punk duo Black Futures (pictured) at Hangar E8 3FN.
