GIG REVIEW | The Dirty Hit Tour @ The Leadmill 18th March

Everything about The Dirty Hit Tour was memorable. Superfood, Pale Waves and King Nun.

We arrived as doors opened so we could see all three bands play and when we got there, much to our surprise, the room was almost empty. It was in the small room of Leadmill and Superfood are a well loved band in the indie music world, so we were shocked that there were only a dozen people in the room. That didn’t stop us from dancing to every song that was played of course.

As the first band, King Nun, set up to play, the room was still bare, but they put on a great show and it was thoroughly enjoyable. We danced so hard we nearly got kicked out the venue. They were shortly followed by Pale Waves, of whom I was incredibly excited to see. Front woman Heather is not only beautiful to look at but her vocals are magical, there music similar to that of the 1975. The crowd was much busier for Pale Waves as they are a more popular band making the atmosphere more warm and supportive.

Superfood however, were the star of the show. The room was sweaty and cloudy even before they graced the stage. They played all their most loved songs including ‘Double Dutch’ ‘Can You Believe’ and ‘Superfood’. They also played brand new songs that they haven’t yet released and even through that the crowd didn’t rest one bit.

I love small venues for one particular reason, I always feel so much more connection to not just the band but the whole room and everyone in it. You meet the rest of the crowd, make friends and bon over your love of music. It’s quite special. Everyone in the room cheered and chanted for Superfood from start to finish, they’ve been fans from the start and they will be fans for life. Im excited to hear what all three bands have in store for us next.
