This Wild Life, As It Is, Seaway and Boston Manor @ King Tut’s Wah Wah

Gareth Rooke reviewed This Wild Life and As It Is co-headline date at the King Tut’s Wah Wah, with support from Seaway and Boston Manor.

King Tut’s
Is a 300 capacity venue and for tonight’s gig it was sold out.
The venue is upstairs with a proper bar downstairs. This is an issue as people will be queuing past the bar. My advice if you are over 18 and don’t mind if you are at the front, grab a drink from the bar and sit down. One of the few venues you can sit and have a drink inside before doors open. It can get very warm inside tho. If you want to be at the front get there early for sold out gigs (5pm) but be careful at a +14 gig they may make you wait outside if you are under 18 but this didn’t happen tonight. The toilets are very clean. There is a bar up-stair which is generally 10p more that the bar downstairs. There is also a cloak room behind the bar upstairs which is a £1. They have a house beer which is brewed for them and is £3:80 and Tennants is £3:50.

Boston Manor
5-piece of awesome punk pop/rock with a killer undertone to there sound. These guys have are full of energy and even when they side that they were going to slow it down and calm it down so we all could get a rest they were still jumping around on stage like mad men.

5-piece pop punk from Canada with head hitting beat. Truly amazing live performance giving everything on stage, a must see live band, I would travel anywhere in the UK to see them play again.

This Wild Life
Pop-punk 2 piece acoustic from Calafonia. Never have I been so memorised by acoustic performance and the silk vocals from Kevin will get into your sole. When they played ‘No more bad Days’ I was fighting back the tears. This was the third time they have toured in the UK and also the third time I have seen them play and each time I can’t wait to see them play live again.

As It Is
5 piece Pop-Rock (pop-punk) band, they are a high energy band who feed of the crowds energy. A lot of there song are emo themed so there is a lot of emotions running in there set and a lot of smile. If you are having a bad day and then see these guys live you will leave feeling that things will get better.

Hi I'm Gareth, A foolish Welshman that has found himself living in Scotland. I adore live music and this all started back in University when a friend dragged me along to my first gig and I saw Travis. From then on I spent a lot of time going to see bands from rubbish uni bands that had formed one drunken night to the mighty Blur. When I finished uni there was a 10 year gap between gigs (long story). Now though, on any given day of the week I can be found in the venues of Glasgow. With regards to my music taste I love anything with great lyrics and heavy drums. When I was younger (and still am) I was obsessed with a band called Alisha's Attic.
When not at a gig I will be found at my computer playing games like Prison Architect, Hearthstone and Wolfenstein.
