Catfish And The Bottlemen Gig

On Friday, a group of us travelled to Manchester to go and see Catfish And The Bottlemen. They were playing at the Castlefield Bowl which is an outdoor venue in Manchester that has both standing and seating areas in the city centre.

They were supported by Vant who opened the evening at 6:30pm. Broken Hands and Little Comets followed them before the arrival of Catfish at around 9:15pm.

The atmosphere was incredible as everyone around you is there for the same reason enjoying the quality music. It wasn't until the middle of their set that I read the backdrop and realised what it actually said. Due to them playing at Castlefield Bowl, they had changed their band name for the night to 'Castlefield and the Bowlmen' which I thought was a really personal touch for the evening. You were able to buy a t-shirt with it on as well as the original band merch.

Despite the issue with flares and people getting a little too drunk and having to be escorted out of the venue, it helped to bring a little realisation to the evening and make it something to remember! Thanks lads!

Have you head their music? Have you seen the live?

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed
