Yn Gymraeg // Welsh version

Cardiff Students' Union is the chosen venue for many rock/metal gigs.

From big names like Of Mice and Men and Asking Alexandria to the lesser known Allusondrugs who were the supporting act for Lonely The Brave and the headline act Marmozets.

The gig was set in the CF-10 café and was a relatively small, intimate affair. There were roughly 200 people present, yet that didn't detract from the experience. If anything less people made it more energetic and fun. It was a pleasure to be in attendance that evening.

Before the show. two of the members of Lonely The Brave agreed to meet with us and do a recorded interview, which will be available on the website to watch shortly. The two guys, Mark and Mo (the bassist and the drummer) were really nice guys and were more than happy to answer any questions we had on the band and their debut album "The Days War". A big thank you goes out to those two for allowing us to meet with them.

The supporting act for the evening, Allusondrugs, did their job of getting the crowd excited perfectly. They were jumping, moshing and sweating like crazy getting us ready for the next band to take the stage, Lonely The Brave.

As they took to the stage the bassist Mark recognised us from the interview and let slip a little smile as we had fulfilled our earlier promise of being right at the front by the barrier. Lonely The Brave are an amazing band and they certainly lived up to our expectations that evening.

If you like rock, then it's definitely worth giving them a listen. They are a phenomenal five-piece from Cambridge, and they will blow you away with their skill and meaning in their songs.

Then Marmozets took to the stage, and the entire room started jumping. Becca (the lead singer) was jumping around like it was nobody's business and the crowd were jumping with her. There was a large mosh pit in the centre of the room and the guitarist was crowd surfing. During the last song of the set they even moved the entire drum kit into the centre of the mosh pit to play amongst their fans.

The energy of the room was crazy, everyone was sweating from all the jumping and dancing, and overall it was a fantastic evening. I'm so glad I was able to be a part of it. 

Thank you to everyone who made that possible, it was a night to remember.
