Live: Blackstorm @ Brighton Hobgoblin – Friday 9 April 2010

April 20th, 2010

For Brighton-based Brit-supergroup Blackstorm, it was their first gig of the year; for the venue, The Hobgoblin, it was it’s last gig ever. To record this momentous occasion, our man Andy Parker was on hand for both words and pictures.

You’ve got to be pretty bold in this day and age to have your first gig of the year 4 months in, but when you have the pedigree of the swaggering creature that’s known as Blackstorm, you really don’t care.

Alexisonfire finally returned to Brighton on a near un-scheduled stop on the Eastpak Tour. The show sold out in just four days, and it shows, with wall to wall die-hard fans strutting their stuff to a setlist consisting mainly of Old Crows/Young Cardinals tracks with a few classics thrown in for good measure.
