Gig cancellation or relocation due to poor pre-sales seems to be fairly rife recently, most notably in the Camden area, with a fair few extreme metal gigs being shifted at the last minute from staple mainstays like the Underworld to the spare attic-like confines of venues such as Upstairs at the Islington Garage.
Those who have kept their bookings unchanged have in some cases suffered shockingly poor attendance (especially if the Origin / Psycroptic show in February was anything to go by), it’s therefore heartening to see that this event has remained as booked, however it’s also intriguing to see how well a bill of this intensity will go down at Dingwalls – with “down” being the operative word, given the venue’s tiered flooring system for the audience area.
