What a great way to start the last bank holiday weekend this year. We’re playing at The Victoria in Birmingham for the first time, support by three awesome bands we haven’t played with before. Should be a good one.

Thats right folks this time tomorrow the first three bands of the night will have just finished playing and we’ll be preparing to go on stage. Doors open at 8pm first band on just after that. It promises to be a good night and one not to be missed.

In the mean time there have been other last minute preparations, programming of pedals, tweaking the setlist, reskinning and tuning of toms.

We’ve been working on a new song for the last few weeks in the studio and I’m glad to report it is coming along nicely. With any luck it will be ready for our next gig in June at The Flapper. So if you want to hear the new song “ninth plague” come along to the next gig, you’ll also hear some of the classics too.

Well in case you weren’t aware we had a massive gig on Tuesday. We supported Electric 6. This is the second time in two years we have done.

Last  year was awesome, this year was mega awesome. This time round we had more notice that we were support and managed to sell over 100 tickets so we played to a virtually sold out crowd. The buzz you get from playing to such a great crowd is indescribable. Needless to say two days after the gig and were still buzzing.

All in all it’s been an amazing year having played some great gigs at some great venues. The Shed in Leicester, The Flapper with Mitchel Emms (The Voice 2013), Headlining Emma Scott Presents gig at the Academy 3, and of course supporting Electric 6 at Academy 2.

More of the same next year hopefully.

Don’t worry folks. no one’s leaving the band. But we have got rid of the old website and updated it with a brand spanking new one. You can check it out at onlythegood.co.uk

In other news the gig at The Rainbow has been cancelled. But on the bright side we’ve managed to get slots at Actress & Bishop on 27th July, Baseline in Dudley on 30th August and The Shed in Leicester on September 28th. It’s like a mini tour of the Midlands. Hopefully by then we should have some new material to unveil. Watch this space.

Well it had been two months since the last gig so we thought it was about time we did another one, and what a gig it was. All week the weather had been hot and Saturday was no exception. This made for a really hot and sweaty stage performance, especially as it was our first headline show since Emma Scott’s gig in January, so playing for 50 minutes was the equivalent of a gym workout.

It’s always good to get a headline slot because it gives us chance show off more songs, and we do like to show off a little bit (we are musicians after all). The crowd was really into it last night which always helps with our performance too.

Thanks to everyone who made it out last night, and thanks to all the bands, Primer, Bullitstorm and Driven. Without all you people it would just be us playing to a soundman and a couple of bar staff and that just wouldn’t be much fun, now would it?!

Next gig is on 11th July at The Rainbow in Birmingham, and we’re looking forward to it already. We may even have some new material for you.
