Bridgnorth Music Festival 2012

So that time of year comes around for the annual live outing by The Hair Thieves.

We were originally booked to play the out door Quayside, but with the mixture of rain and electricity, the outdoor concert was cancelled and moved across the road to Gabrielle's wine bar.

We have played Gabrielle's before at open mic nights (when it was known as the Lounge. Incidentally, it was the venue we first performed live together in 2008), so knew it was going to be an up close and personal experience.   So, with that in mind and breaking with the norm, we ditched the effects pedals.

 We aired the new song "Invisible Wall".  An acoustic version of which you can listen to on our Soundcloud page.  The EP version will be fuller with drums and bass and keyboards added.

We also did our "Donate to charity and get a free CD" deal, with a very limited CD featuring said acoustic version of "Invisible Wall" and the now very old (can't get it anywhere else) track "Tilly".

Other tracks we played were "Bad Consumer", "A Journey of the Soul", "Break The Casino" and a couple of covers by Idlewild and Stereophonics.

Here is how we closed the set with "Break The Casino". Filmed by Tracy Breeze.

More news on EP5 to follow.
