Artists watched: Salad, Colour Me Wednesday

Salad's musical rehabilitation continues and I'm still trying to make it to as many London gigs as I can!

Poster for Salad

This is another live outing for the full Salad band, at a mostly-full Academy 2. Support was from Colour Me Wednesday - having enjoyed them when I saw them at Indietracks a few years ago I decided to get there early to catch them. This was a good move although I seem to remember the band being a lot bigger on the bigger stage.

Not a lot I can say about Salad other than this was the best performance I have seen of theirs to date, first time or second time round. Sometimes you can tell a band is really up for it. They were, and the crowd were equally appreciative too. All bodes well for 2019 and the first (full band) album for 22 years.

Mammoth setlist too - 20 songs!
