Gigs I've got planned in 2018

One of my fave bloggers Avril Marie recently posted Concert dates for your diary/ Bands on tour in 2018 and it made me suuper excited to catch some shows this year. I've got a couple of really good ones planned, most of which are in Leeds!

DON BROCO//Don Broco are on fire recently, and it's safe to say I'm obsessed. I saw them at Slam Dunk North and again at their uh-mayzing Ally Pally show in November, and I'm beyond excited for their new album on Friday. There will be much actual screaming I'm sure. So of course when I heard they'd be in Leeds for their February tour I booked me and my sister some tickets!

GUITAR WOLF// This has just been announced and I haven't got tickets yet, but I'm so going to catch Japanese punk band Guitar Wolf play Leeds' Brudenell Social Club in March. They seem like they'll be a really fun band to see live- can't wait.

THE AQUABATS!/ BOWLING FOR SOUP// Not gonna lie, I like BFS, but I am screaming in excitement for the Aquabats. Their TV series (which is for kids but sssshhh) is a firm favourite of mine- it's kind of super sentai inspired, and it's so funny and weird. Their music is also really cool- it's this upbeat ska-pop punk fusion which is right up my alley. My sister Lizzie is coming up north in February, and we're gonna see this in Manchester on the Thursday and then Broco on the Saturday. It's gonna be amaze.

Fizzy Blood// I missed Fizzy Blood playing in Leeds twice now (essay deadline and xmas eve) and I reckon they'll be a really fun show. So I'm going to see them in Headrow House, and I'm going alone. I'm still not 100% used to going to gigs on my own, but it's definitely something I want to get more comfortable with. Any tips?

Slam Dunk North// Slam Dunk North 2017 was the best- I managed to see faves Crossfaith and Don Broco, as well as Deaf Havana, Neck Deep and Bury Tomorrow, and I'm going to go back this year for sure- this year I only have a couple of exams, and it's in Leeds so I really have no excuse. If Crossfaith could come back and do a set that's more than 6 songs long that would be great.

Download// I've never been to Download before and it's actually getting ridiculous. My girls Babymetal are playing, so even if I only go for that day, I've told myself I'm definitely going as a little graduation present to myself.

Thanks for reading!
Have you guys got any gigs planned in 2018?

    1. Download just needs BMTH, Broco or Crossfaith and it will be perfect <3 Omg if we both go to Download I'd love to meet you IRL!
