Info: You'll never leave a Bitch Falcon show with a sense of indifference or a lack of fulfillment, yet again this was the case last night as a packed and shhhweaty Workman's Club rocked out to one of Dublin's favourite live acts. The audience were already energised by the excellent support from The Scratch, an acoustic four-piece that raised the roof off with their rapid tempo trad-rock, even momentarily treating us to the best part of the Riverdance track.
Bitch Falcon ratcheted proceedings up step by step, gradually going from the 'less louder' songs in their repertoire up to their trademark rock slams, by the time they had got to new single 'Clutch', they were already in full swing. Without sounding too rose-tinted, one feeling I've always had both during and post-gig with Bitch Falcon is I imagine that this must have been what it was like in the good old days of the 70's and early 80's at rock concerts / shows. It feels primal and the energy is infectious from stage to audience, regular attendees at their gigs know this, and that's a large part of why they keep coming back for more, newcomers are already thinking of their next BF show for the same reasons, and that's why the numbers will continue to grow.
