Yard Act at the 100 Club: Live Review
Its safe to say that our first Sister Ray Outstore was a huge success.
We sold out the legendary 100 club and got to listen to our favorite new band Yard Act.
It was fantastic seeing you all there, and for those who didn't we've got a live review from our friends at final hours.
Ella, who attended the show, writes:
'I had the pleasure of seeing Yard Act twice in twenty four hours. The big show of the extended weekend was their appearance for the record store Sister Ray, and a different coloured special vinyl, at the 100 Club on Oxford Street. It’s an excellent venue, especially for bands on the cusp of much larger spaces, that delivers both on atmosphere and aural quality. The intimacy and intensity is always heightened by the much-lauded “legendary” nature of the club itself and the array of epoch-defining talent that has graced that stage over its many years of existence. I was determined not to miss the opportunity, and duly set off early on Saturday armed with my editor’s camera and my own boundless enthusiasm.
Opening up with the blistering Rich, as on both days, a track off the new album that treads familiar lyrical ground about the moral delusions of the feckless “wealth creators” (and hoarders) of modern day rip-off Britain. Dark Days, that first EP instant classic which no doubt cemented in many people’s minds that Fixer Upper wasn’t just a brilliant one off, is in for The Overload. Even the otherwise staid gentlemen in the front row have to move to this one.'
