Don't think I like Athlete much, but I do remember one quite good gig they did in Deptford when I lived there.
I was at this one, more from this year in Paul's gig history for 2003. Part of every gig I went to from '87 to 2023. It's a natural step from my Best gigs of all time weblog post. Yeah I know it's a bit nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying reminiscing about this stuff.
Other gigs at Astoria I was at are Foo Fighters ('05), The Tears ('05), Goldie Lookin' Chain (2004), Suede ('03), Belle & Sebastian (2003), The Darkness homecoming gig (2003), Blur ('03), The Darkness (2003), The Charlatans (2002), Andrew WK (2002), And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead (2002), Travis (2002), Jimmy Eat World (2002), The Hives (2001), Neds Atomic Dustbin (2001), Gene (2001), Outkast (2001), Doves (2001), And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead ('01), Queens Of The Stone Age (2000), Bloodhound Gang ('00), Six By Seven ('00), Elastica ('00), The Beta Band ('00), Super Furry Animals (1999), Baby Bird ('98), NME Brats Tour ('98), Travis (1998), NME Brats Spiritualized (1998), Strangelove (1997), Space ('97), Brat Bus tour (1997), Placebo ('97), NME Brats gig with Pavement (1997), Super Furry Animals (1997), The Lightning Seeds ('97), Longpigs (1996), NME Bratbus tour (1996), Revolting Cocks (1991), Under Neath What ('90)
