Thursday evening I took my partner to the Northern Ballet's performance of The Nutcracker at Leeds Grand Theatre. The show was thoroughly enjoyable, offered through a partnership between the University and Northern Ballet which was appreciated! After watching the performance we froze in the German Market before retiring for the evening. To celebrate the anniversary of our first gig together; we headed to The Refectory (Leeds University) tonight for The Violens, Two Wounded Birds and The Drums! The tickets were another freebie, I managed to win them in a competition, writing a review for a Darwin Deez show earlier in the year. The venue is a much better alternative to the Leeds Metropolitan Student Union. The security were a disgrace though, throwing people out who attempted to mosh and they even attacked Jonathan Pierce, lead vocal for The Drums!! This fired-up the singer, which meant the crowd witnessed an energetic show from the band. Afterwards we caught up with Connor Hanwick, drummer for the band and he was as shocked as us about the attitude of the security team. As we spoke to him the security team assembled in the background looking menacing and gesturing in his direction. Safe journey home guys!!
