Assembly Required

Mosh Pit Warped Tour 2005Image by mikeinlondon via Flickr

I recently attended the O2 Brixton Academy and wrote that I regarded it as one of London's leading music venues. I focused on the atmosphere, crowd participation and the area referred to as the mosh pit. Tonight, Brixton Academy had competition, my brothers band the Internal Skars were hosting an event at the local Social Club. The night was an emphatic success and defined as the best the band had experienced!

A significant family representation, accompanied by partners who were there to participate in the proceedings. The proverbial roof being 'raised' was an understatement, much to the enthusiasm, energy and stampede of friends, family and fans. There's so much more depth to moshing, I have been introduced to a variety of different scenarios. The personal favourite being swung around, slight concern that I would ricochet around the venue but impressive regardless! The youngest sibling has much to learn about participation as he spectated and decided to leave early because it wasn't his scene. Seriously, I don't understand that approach but then I suppose he has time to acquire the credentials!!!

Set List -

Ode To A Dying Fool
Never Loved You Anyway
Dirty Bitch
Circus Clown
Financial Breakdown
Mental Patient
Out Of Line
