    We ARE trying to make it an all ages show but it's out of our hands now, keeping all fingers and toes crossed... I'll let you know as soon as we get confirmation one way or the other though.
  6. avatar MULLAN Extraordinaire
    After that album launch on Saturday I think ASIWYFA will win comfortably.
  7. avatar FaeriBex
    got asked today from a friend is this ticket only? i'm guessing yeah cos it'll sell pretty quickly but just double checking here.
  8. avatar Siouxsie Tremolo
    Best to get tickets in advance, yeah, they're a measly £5 from www.cqaf.com and the Welcome Centre on Royal Avenue.
  9. avatar FaeriBex
    yeah thought so. am booking it off work 2mora night so as to not risk missing it!
  10. avatar mgh411
    Thanks Siouxsie, will buy a ticket as soon as it's confirmed, if it is :D

    Oh damn, I never thought to check - I got tickets today at the Welcome Centre and it *seemed* fine...I said I was 16 though, and I wasn't advised of anything different. Generally if it's 18+ you're told at the point of purchase, unless they really want ticket sales.

    Fingers crossed. If not, expect a thread up selling tickets :?

    There really needs to be more all-ages gigs... *soapbox* "- um, no."
  18. avatar MULLAN Extraordinaire
    What time is this kicking off? And where can I get tickets again?
  19. avatar goatboy
    This will be class. Unfortunately, I won't be there.

    I caught Maybeshewill at the end of last year and they were incredible too. Their latest LP is a monster.
  20. avatar FaeriBex
    bought my tickets this morning! :)

    So you've all seen ASIWYFA's challenge to those pansy ass Fighting With Wire boys - [url]http://vimeo.com/4073734?pg=embed&sec=[/url]

    Now see FWW's response to the threats. Warning - not for the faint of heart.

    Bad news kids - this isn't going to be all ages after all. I'm really sorry... Anyone under 18 who bought a ticket, PM me and we'll sort it out.

    So sorry.
  25. avatar Persistence
    Ahh, come on! :(

    I know it isn't your fault Siouxsie, but it happened at NOFX last night, now ASIWYFA? I know some things are beyond control; my rage-y face isn't aimed at you though. :P Thanks for trying anyway, will PM you when I get things sorted with friends.

  27. avatar Crackity_jones
    Are there tickets left for this in the Welcome Centre? Hopefully heading round at lunchtime tomorrow (Tues).
  28. avatar MULLAN Extraordinaire
    Can someone tell me what time this starts?
  29. avatar Crackity_jones
    8pm apparently. No idea about stage times, four bands playing though.
  30. avatar Siouxsie Tremolo
    Aye there are still tickets available from the Welcome Centre and also from cqaf.com, kick off is 8pm on Saturday. Stage times will go up in the next day or two.

    But in more serious news, Fighting With Wire have released ANOTHER smackdown... [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgHzI0TOtt0&feature=channel_page[/url] God help us all.

    When asked why ASIWYFA have declined to respond to these outrageous threats, they simply said they're too busy being a real band to waste time on those pansies.

    Here's a rather snazzy poster for the match that's too big to put up here apparently
    [url]http://s147.photobucket.com/albums/r294/sarahwyllie/?action=view&current=fightnight.jpg[/url]

    Nope, it's there at the bottom man.

    ...but because it was uploaded to (such a shit videohost as) Vimeo I couldn't embed it properly/quickly and lost interest in trying to code it in, so I just linked it. :)
  39. avatar POSITIVExYOUTH
    Might be a VERY long shot, but are tickets gonna be available on the night?

    Cos gonna be at the Oh Yeah! for Axis Of and don't want to buy a ticket for this and then on the night not be able to go.
  40. avatar Siouxsie Tremolo
    There'll be some tickets on the door tomorrow, yeah, but I wouldn't leave it too late - doors are at 8pm & stage times to follow this afternoon.

    Enjoy Axis Of!
  41. avatar POSITIVExYOUTH
    Cheers.

    Might see with the boyos what is the deal and eventually maybe come round there first to get tickets then go to the Oh Yeah!.

    It is the mighty Faith No More's - "Mouth To Mouth"

    A band that would show both these little girly boy's bands a thing or two.
  43. avatar the_doctor199
    Any stage times for this yet?

    Was in the marquee last night for Candi Station, the chandeliers are going to look well with ASIWYFA rocking the stage :lol:
  44. avatar edwin mcfee
    I second what the good Doctor said.
    any sign of stage times? will be at Morrissey and wanna catch as much of FWW V ASIWYFA as i can
  45. avatar Pavel
    All you need to know is kick off is at eight, fuffing be there. ;)

    No need to be selective with such a quality laden line-up.
  46. avatar DuncanDisorderly
    looking forward to this, so i am.
  47. avatar Crackity_jones
    Yeah stage time would be great please!
  48. avatar Prequel
    ffs, use some common sense, doors at 8 so first band around 8.30, probably maybeshewill, play for 30 mins then a plastic rose on after equipment change around 9.15, fww at 10 for just under an hour, asiwyfa around 11 until midnight give or take a few minutes.
  49. avatar noelyg05
    I know people have asked but just double checking, can i still buy tickets at the door tonight?
  50. avatar rentaghost
    flip me Prequel, there's no need to be so sniffy. the customer is always right remember - and its nice to have customers who want to make sure they dont miss the bands they want to see.

    Id say so, just get down early.
  52. avatar GerdaTaro
    ASIWYFA ripped it open and emptied my brain. FWW were a new one on me but you can count me in henceforth. The Plastic Fantastics supplied as ever but vocals lamentably lost. Otherwise bit of a result all round.
  53. avatar MULLAN Extraordinaire
    For me ASIWYFA stole the show with ease. All the dynamics that their songs possess completely out-weighed FWW (whom I like by the way). The outro with all the previous video-build-up attire Nirvana cover was a sight to behold and a killer way to end a great gig.
    I didn't expect that type of set-up at all, what with the huge marquee, outdoor toilets etc. There must have been 1,000 people there.
  54. avatar FaeriBex
    that chaos that ensued at the end there nearly broke my nose.... was awesome! i fully enjoyed all the bands although only caught a bit of maybeshewill. there were comments about the atmoshpere in the tent being slightly lacking, i can see where they come from, however that wasn't the crowd fault or the bands. asiwyfa stole it for me. although i will never forget the sight of them all up there in their wrestling gear. legends.
  55. avatar Joeplaysthedrums
    Great setup, enjoyed this.
  56. avatar POSITIVExYOUTH
    Have a go to if you wish, but I honestly thought that the ASIWYFA set was anything special. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but to me it wasn't by any means something outstanding or special. I think it didn't do it for me because of the atmosphere and because I thought that the marquee was too big and it all got a bit lost due to the size.
    Mind you, the Nirvana cover at the end was one of the best gig enders possibly.

    Besides that Fighting With Wire's set was solid, again, could have been better if the atmosphere would have been better. But still really liked.

    Just a bit pissed off that I missed Maybeshewill, but the whole thing at the Oh Yeah! was a bit problematic.
  57. avatar Crackity_jones
    I thought the atmosphere was grand and was really impressed by the setup and size of the crowd. I also thought ASIWYFA played a blinder, their set was too short for my liking though. The mosh was a bit mental mind you, my gf got her foot stood on my some bloke and we had to move to the side.

    But yeah, good night all round.
  58. avatar smiths_man
    Went along to this last night. Not one bit impressed. I am seriously struggling to understand why there is so much hype around these particular bands. Shi-ite!
  59. avatar the_doctor199
    Massively enjoyed last night, new FWW stuff is sounding really great, ASIWYFA were great, wish they had a longer set though.

    ps Anyone else think from Johnny from ASIWYFA looks a bit like Nick Olivieri with his new shaved head?!
