Warm Digits And Vessels – The Lantern, Colston Hall, Bristol 5/5/18

It had been some 9 months since I saw the boys play The Lexington in August last year and I was long overdue seeing them again. Opening up with Two To Four Degrees off their latest fabulous Wireless World album. The crowd were into it from the get go. Only a small crowd as tonight the boys were relegated to support…but they were the main feature for me!

Amazing they made it at all, as I’d had a quick chat to Steve (guitarist and keyboard/programming wizard) before their set and he was saying he’d had his car broken into while they were performing the previous night in Manchester 🙁 I, for one, was super glad he and Andy (drummer extraordinaire) made it down to Brizzle.

If I was to give any criticism to the set the guys did, it was that the vocal tracks could have done with the vocals turned up a bit…but that is being pernickety.

The set was fab otherwise.

Another chat with Steve and Andy afterwards, a ticket stub memento and a pic with them. And thank you for the beer/stout, Andy, it went down nicely. Thank you. To both of you for being great, chatting and just being awesome guys :-)) See you again soon in London.

We stayed for Vessels and I was not in any way familiar with their stuff. I went in with an open mind and open ears. They were very competent. The sound was great…but…I dunno, I just wasn’t feeling it last night. One track they performed was interesting and I was kind of into that one…but then they just went back to sounding a little…”samey”. There wasn’t anything wrong with them…I just wasn’t feeling it last night. They have a trance vibe to them and they were going down really well with the rest of the crowd. Had I been in the right mood/mindset for them, maybe I’d have got into them. But, I’d have preferred more of the Warm Digits boys to be honest. They were the big drawcard for me last night.

I shall leave with some footage of Warm Digits performing the title track off their most recent album, Wireless World. Once again, thanks to Steve and Andy for being awesome. Love you guys! ❤️
