The evening is already promising; the Voodoo Rooms is a lovely venue, spacious and the lighting is always on point.

This is the debut night for The Bad Touch and it promises to be a busy one, so my friend and I make sure to arrive early to enjoy a drink and secure a place at the front.

First on stage are ‘Harry and the Henderson’s’, today we have four of their usual members: one bassist, two guitarists and a drummer. The main and most pleasant surprise is that they all sing; their voices perform solo and together and it is a real pleasure.

‘Harry and the Henderson’s’ have a really interesting sound, a mixture of melodic and sweet folk and country achieved by some spot on song writing. Their repertoire has many different songs, but it is their catchier tunes that get the hall dancing, people swaying more and more violently from one side to the either of the venue.

This band from Glasgow is definitely one to watch, the surprise of popping candy in a world of musical plain pudding

A few minutes break and it is now time for The Bad Touch : lights dimmed and a pretty busy stage; I can count five musicians. A side door opens and in the semidarkness, Daniel the lead singer, jumps on stage and the shows begins.

Oh, what a show! The energy coming from the stage flooded the audience and the audience gave it back in waves. Dancing was not an option, but a duty: the room felt fuller than it already was as everyone was throwing some creative dance moves and head banging.

My favourite tune of the night has to be ‘My Baboon Heart’: the rumbling voice of Dan like an old engine, the cryptic lyrics and those impending drums really did bring out the most animal part of us.

The Bad Touch stands out from the crowd for its stage presence, the charisma of Dan and the personal style of all the band members do really put them in a category of their own.

If this was only their first gig as a band, I do not know what this breeze of fresh air will bring us in months to come.

Keep your eyes and ears peeled, make sure you get a ticket for the next time the boys are in town!

  4. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established website such as yours require
    a lot of work? I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my
    journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able
    to share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

  7. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. But just imagine
    if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips,
    this blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Fantastic blog!
