|Yes, it's them again. A good band who are well deserving of some support after making a trip from well out of London to play a gig in a small venue. They are on first at the Hope & Anchor, and when I arrive in the small room downstairs I am the only one there. It's looking like being a dispiriting gig playing in front of no-one for these boys, but they don't seem to let it get them down.|
However, even as they launch into the intro to the first song people start to walk in - by the time they finish they song there are at least 16 people in the room!
By the time Big Num finish their set there are a lot more people watching them - and judging by their reaction at the end of each song they are really enjoying the music. The band seem well into it too - they always seem to play with a real passion for what they are doing.
I can't stay to watch the rest of the bands on the bill as I have another gig to get to a couple of miles away...
