    Strange Victory + the CQAF presents an evening of music specially curated by Gary Lightbody with :

    SONS AND DAUGHTERS
    FRIGHTENED RABBIT
    THE LOWLY KNIGHTS

    + DJs Gary Lightbody + Tom Simpson (Snow Patrol) & Richard Colburn (Belle + Sebastian)

    FRIDAY 8TH MAY 09 @ CQAF FESTIVAL MARQUEE
    TICKETS 8 FROM WWW.CQAF.COM DOORS 7.30PM

    What do you get if you cross the melancholy story- telling of Lee Hazlewood, the lyricism of Leonard Cohen and the raw thrust of country, blues and folk? The answer is very likely Sons and Daughters. The band have really hit a creative peak with the Bernard Butler-produced The Gift (their third album for Domino Records). Dizzying pop inflections augment their uncompromising sound to create music that combines soaring melodies and tarnished glamour.

    Frightened Rabbit are a Scottish band who put a lacklustre, bandwagon-jumping English indie scene to shame. The Midnight Organ Fight (Fat Cat Records) is a tremulous, trembling effort of stripped down guitars, shot nerves, existential crisis and a sad, twisted heart. The gentle, brittle My Backwards Walk was surely one of the most devastating songs of 2008. Twisted, tortured and terric.

    The Lowly Knights are surely one of the most talked about bands of 2009. This twelve member ensemble stand apart with a sound that stretches from fragile whispers to grand folk opera.

  4. avatar Joeplaysthedrums
    Probably. I have my tickets already, v exciting.
  5. avatar Shanghai 5
    Frightened Rabbit are probably my favourite band from the last few years. Midnight Organ Fight is stunning. They are worth the entrance fee alone. I can't wait to see them again.
  6. avatar thesacredhearts
    Aye got my tickets today too. Absolute bargain.

    'Lovely Stuff'

    Saw Frightened Rabbit in AAs then saw them supporting Deathcab. The bigger stage suits them better. And I remember being convinced that the singer was Kenny from the Olympic Lifts.




    Then again drink had been taken.

  11. avatar the*optimist
    Is this a full band set by Frightened rabbit or is it an acoustic set?
  12. avatar Orzo
    Midnight Organ Fight is a brilliant album. I'm looking forward to seeing Frightened Rabbit more than Sons & Daughters but still, great line-up!
  13. avatar Lucy Lu
    I'm so excited about this. i always phone bvcb to get my tickets for cqaf because the people are so lovely.
  14. avatar marshmalla
    this is going to be truely great...
  15. avatar Burkey
    Does anyone know what sort of set time Frightened Rabbit will be getting? Is it a support slot or are them and S&D sharing an equal amount of time?
  16. avatar Crackity_jones
    Can't wait to see FR again. They should be headlining tbh.
  17. avatar Bonanza*
    Emailed cqaf requesting set times for this so shall post when/if they get back to me (unless someone beats me to it!)
  18. avatar Crackity_jones
    Cool, just came on to check if there were any times yet. Looking forward to this.
  19. avatar ShowYourBones
    Snap, anyone any idea? I know, I know, 'get down at 8', 'you should be able to guess', blah blah blah!
  20. avatar blonderedhead
    Is it an acoustic set from Frightened Rabbit or full band set-up?
  21. avatar Crackity_jones
    Full band as far as I know! Third time for me. 8)
  22. avatar Pilot Paddy
    I knew I shouldn't have waited until 4pm on the day to try and get tickets. This was guaranteed to sell out.

    Longshot, if anybody is selling any last minute drop me a PM.
  23. avatar Crackity_jones
    Actually th fourth time! Or fifth if you include Scott's AUTV acoustic session but that would make me out to be a smug twat...

    Get any stage times?

    I was thinking something like.. LK: 815 FR: 9 S&D: 10
  25. avatar Joeplaysthedrums
    Lowly Knights - 8pm
    Frightened Rabbit - 9pm
    Sons + Daughters - 1015pm

    And hopefully enough time to get over to see corrigan's new band John Edgar Voe in mchughs. Corrigan, Ben McAuley (aka belfasts Steve Albini), Charlie from Des Hearts + Robyn Shiels altogether. It'll either be really good or really really shite.
  26. avatar kevinfreeburn
    cheers joe, i'll get down there for eight then. i wouldn't mind getting across to mchugh's to see corrigan's new thing as well.
  27. avatar edwin mcfee
    caught a bit of Sons and Daughters sound checking earlier. I'm well excited about hearing their new stuff. Shame this clashed with Imelda May though
  28. avatar merten_4_mcguffin
    cannot wait now, Frightened Rabbit are gona be amazing!!
  29. avatar kevinfreeburn
    i love the imelda may album but wanted to see frightened rabbit more. hopefully she'll be back later in the year.

    Missed Lowly Knights, thought Frightened Rabbit were dull and Sons and Daughters have been better.

    I really shouldn't leave the house.
  32. avatar blonderedhead
    I thought sons and daughters were pretty poor, won't be listening to them again anytime soon. Frightened rabbit were good, nice raport with the crowd. Lowly Knights were brilliant I thought, really nice sounds and an excellent start.
    So in conclusion flip the line-up upside down and you've got a better gig right there
  33. avatar Burkey
    Really enjoyed Frightened Rabbit. Sons & Daughters were completely meh for me.
  34. avatar merten_4_mcguffin
    thought FR were brilliant, did want 'poke' but was still a great set, and lowly knights were great as always, the sons & daughters style is performed better by other bands, thought they would be better live...wish frightened rabbit had headlined...
  35. avatar Orzo
    I didn't rate Lowly Knights - could cut abour 4 band members and still get the same sound - which isn't great anyway.

    To be fair the sound was crap and it took about 1 song into Frightened Rabbit to sort improve it.

    FR were good but nothing special and I was bored after a few songs by Sons & Daughters. Again, I think the sound production was crap which made a lot of their songs sound the same.

    Enjoyed myself but was looking forward to it quite a lot so a little anti-climatic too.

    Cashier No9 tonight at the Black Box should be gig of the weekend.

    I quite enjoyed all the bands, I didn't know that much Sons & Daughters but their guitar work is really interesting. Frightened Rabbit were fairly great - they played The Greys so I'm happy. I only caught the last few songs by Lowly Knights, but luckily one of them was Devotion, which sounded great, though the song they closed with after was a bit of an anti-climax.

    A certain Mr Lightbody was standing next to us in the audience at one point, which was odd.

    I heard a girl was trying to dry hump his leg at one point.
