Reviews, Reviews & More Reviews…

Its been a busy couple of weeks here at the Sando- with Desert Sessions & the Rose Tattoo gigs being massive highlights. And with The Fireballs coming up this weekend, and 6ft Hick next week, there seems only to be one “Slowdown” in sight (ie: Slowdown Sunday again on next week)!

So instead of giving our wrap up of the last week or so, we thought we’d post some of the reviews and media we’ve found from the last few weeks.

I have many fond memories of seeing gigs at The Sando; some of these gigs were good and some bad but overall it’s a cool venue. When you see a band there it feels like a real gig.

What better setting for a night of Stoner Rock? Upon entering, I was eager to see what these performers had in store for us and whether they would do the amazing bands they were paying tribute to justice.
