Bellowhead – The Forum, Bath.

The gig was part of the first half of Bellowhead’s farewell tour, a fairly drawn out affair which eventually finishes in Oxford next May.

Bellowhead appeared on stage just after 9, and stormed their way through a near two hour long set, culminating with a low-key rendition of Richard Thompson’s Down Where the Drunkards Roll, something apparently performed at their first ever gig.

Once we made it out of the venue we ambled round to a pre-arranged pub for a post-gig session featuring a few of the band plus assorted hangers on. Some of the band played, some propped up the bar, and some were elsewhere. We managed to drink all of the beer on tap before everything wrapped up at about 1am.
