Airbourne – Glasgow O2 Academy – 6/4/10

Another miserable night in Glasgow, but anyone with any sense is at the O2 Academy rocking out with Airbourne.

First up, we have Roadrunner newbies Taking Dawn, they only have a half hour set, but they tear the place up. Smoke machines and strobe lights are used to the max during their set, showing that these guys deserve a bigger stage. The highlight of their set was a fantastic rendition of Fight Them With Your Rock.

Up next was the three guitar attack of Black Spiders. This was the first time i had heard anything from these guys and the blew me away, great musicianship and some of the chunkiest riffs you’ll ever hear. The singer was on fire and the drummer looked crazy, just what you want from a hard rock band!

Finally, Airbourne take to the stage, the blast straight into Raise The Flag from their new album No Guts, No Glory. The energy from the band is unlike anything I have ever seen, they were on fire and the crowd loved it as they sang along to every single word. Singer/Guitarist Joel O’ Keeffe was superb, he is a brilliant frontman, at one point he left the stage and walked up to the bar, whilst still playing, and every fan had their back to the stage, their eyes glued on O’ Keeffe. Highlights of the set were Runnin’ Wild, Blonde, Bad And Beautiful and Cheap Wine & Cheaper Women (introduced as Cheap Buckfast Wine & Cheaper Glasgow Women… Scottish people will get the joke.)

In all, this was a great night, some superb rock songs and good times all round.
