Sonic Breakfast Top Ten of 2019 – Number Nine – Life At The Arcade and DAY at the O2 Islington Academy

To truly appreciate the quality of gigs, you need some duds. There’s been a couple of times over the course of this fine gig-going year that I’ve needed a jolt to bring me out of a routine, a reminder of how lucky I am that quality gigs are taking place on my doorstep. My recent November experience at Islington’s O2 Academy proved to be exactly that; after writing about it (here), my critical faculty was reset, refreshed and ready to appreciate again. 

And it’s for that reason that the Life At The Arcade headline gig gets a number nine slot in Sonic Breakfast’s top ten of 2019. 

Well, almost for that reason. There was one band on the bill that really appealed to my senses. And DAY have just released a video from the night. Chasing Sugar was a set highlight and gives a really good indication about where this super-interesting outfit are heading. Regular readers of Sonic Breakfast better be quick to view though as I’m told it’ll only be shared for a week or so. 

 

 

Back tomorrow – Christmas Day and the number eight ‘present’ in this countdown of moments.
