GIG 005: Ghost Dance / Rose of Avalanche / Ides of March - Town & Country Club 06/11/88
Strangely even though I'd been in to goth music since @ 1985/86 it took me until my fifth gig to actually see some goth bands. In this case it was the brilliant Ghost Dance headlining the Town & Country club in Kentish Town with Manchester's "Rose of Avalanche" in support along with Ides of March.

When Rose of Avalanche came on you'd have thought they were headlining - the crowd was manic and I ended up in the thick of it along with Jason and Wicksy. Rose of Avalanche blew me away and I wasn't sure how Ghjost Dance would compare to such a stunning set. Well, Ghost Dance matched them and threw something extra on top - even though I ended up having to watch the latter part of the set from the side as I was way too knackered to continue :p

Ghost Dance cemented themselves as an early leader in my 'favourite live bands of all time' chart and subsequent performances over the next year or so just strengthened their claim.

Price: £5.00
