On a day where the people of Wales descended on Cardiff to celebrate the final day of the 2017 RBS Six Nations Championship (and drown their sorrows after Wales' heartbreaking loss to France), rock fans were heading to Cardiff University's Great Hall for a different reason. The reason; Lower Than Atlantis are closing out their UK tour at the venue.

First up were ROAM and sadly I missed most of their set due to the queue outside and how slow the staff were in letting people in (sort it out Cardiff!) but the two songs I did catch, sounded good and had the signature ROAM energy and enthusiasm and the crowd that were already inside for their set seemed to enjoy them, so it's safe to say they did a good job as usual.

Hands Like Houses take to the stage they were last on all the way back in October 2016 (yes I know it isn't long ago but sssh!). They bring energy and some banging tunes including Glasshouse, Perspectives and I Am. Definitely one of my favourite sets to see and the crowd seemed to agree, with quite a few singing along (also kudos for guitarist Alex for being possibly the happiest person I've ever seen on a stage). We are lucky that the sound system at the venue is having a good day as we got to fully hear the extent of frontman Trenton's vocal range.
