There was a certain vibe in the city as one of Portsmouth’s finest, Blackfoot Circle returned to the Wedgewood Rooms.
Andy Muscat got the ball rolling, but it was Sam McCarthy’s new band Burning Beaches, who set the capacity crowd alight with their no-nonsense, in-your-face, raw-rock sound.
Each of their tracks were full of passion and power, but it was stand out track Wo’man, that is still ringing in my ears... what a tune!
With the crowd ready to go, Blackfoot Circle burst on to the stage and wasted no time in erupting into their fantastic set.
From the opening riff of Counterfeit to the closing chords of Talk Of The Town, the Wedge crowd were more alive than I had seen them in some time, an ocean of manic music lovers who had lost themselves in the wonderfulness that is Blackfoot Circle.
I have been following these guys for some time, and there is nothing more satisfying than seeing a brilliantly talented band enjoying themselves on stage, while being worshipped by fans.
