Laura Marling @ The Tunnels, 30th October 2008

Recommended Posts

That article reminded me of the pricks sitting on the floor. Fair play when it was quiet earlier but they looked digusted by the idea that they may have to stand up (so they are taking up the space of one person instead of three) as there was literally no room to move at the bar area.

Marling played a beautiful set and it was quieter down the front. sadly from where I was standing (maybe 6 or 7 people back) you could hear the roaring conversation from the bar during the entire set. :(

Anyone else think she looked miserable?

Agreed. It was slightly confusing that Laura was miserable and Malcolm was pretty cheerful. I guess that is what Aberdeen can or can't do for you! See my photo of Laura for further proof:

I enjoyed both sets but it vastly improved once the crowd thinned a bit before Malcolm. There definitely was no magical moment of hush for Laura; I was away near the fire exit about 7 rows back from the front and definitely heard plenty of bar chat as well as some from folks around the bottom of the stairs.

I'm with you on that plan of yours Andy. Something must be done - it was pretty bad when it was Moshulu but now that it is spreading to decent venues like the Tunnels...

I think people need to be shown there are places where you can go, have a drink, chat with your mates, and not piss off people who are there to see someone who has a PA yet is struggling to compete against your collective loudmouthedness. It's called a pub.
