With Chunk + We Are Going To Eat You. I was in the queue for this gig and bought a fanzine off someone. Did I know Metallica were doing a secret gig just a few doors down at the Marquee club? Why on earth did I stay at the Astoria? Bah...
I went to this one, more from this year in my gigography for 1990. Part of every gig I went to from '87 to 2023. It's a natural step from my Best Gigs Ever blog post. Yeah I know a bit geeky, let's let that go though, I'm having fun reminiscing about this stuff.
Other gigs at Astoria I attended are Foo Fighters ('05), The Tears ('05), Goldie Lookin' Chain (2004), Suede (2003), Belle & Sebastian ('03), The Darkness homecoming gig ('03), Blur (2003), Athlete (2003), The Darkness ('03), The Charlatans ('02), Andrew WK (2002), And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead (2002), Travis (2002), Jimmy Eat World ('02), The Hives ('01), Neds Atomic Dustbin (2001), Gene (2001), Outkast (2001), Doves (2001), And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead (2001), Queens Of The Stone Age ('00), Bloodhound Gang ('00), Six By Seven (2000), Elastica ('00), The Beta Band (2000), Super Furry Animals ('99), Baby Bird ('98), NME Brats Tour (1998), Travis ('98), NME Brats Spiritualized ('98), Strangelove (1997), Space ('97), Brat Bus tour (1997), Placebo ('97), NME Brats gig with Pavement (1997), Super Furry Animals (1997), The Lightning Seeds (1997), Longpigs (1996), NME Bratbus tour ('96), Revolting Cocks ('91)
