It's Good To Feel 16 Again Sometimes - The Maine & Mayday Parade Live At The TroxyWednesday, 17 February 2016
The Troxy is a cool but weird venue. It was originally a cinema in the 1930's, then became a bingo hall in the 80's and now is a venue for various things such a gigs, weddings and events. It has that old feel to it which is cool but I personally don't like it as music venue if you're not right down in the standing area like we were. The further back you go, you can't really see a lot because of the low ceiling for the upper tier. However with that being said, this show was moved from Shepherds Bush Empire as the roof is being restored.
One of my fondest Mayday Parade based memories would have to be Slam Dunk festival in 2012 (could have been a later one I'm not too sure) having a slightly cider based, emotional friend circle dance. Things like this remind me it's good and healthy to feel 16 again and switch off a little and enjoy the moment, as cliché as it is.
