TV fans switched off

Bit of a snarl-up at the Concrete And Glass Festival, apparently, with reporting that "hundreds" of TV On The Radio fans were "shut out" of their gig last night. The report is a little sketchy on the detail - hundreds? really? And what happened to them? Were they ticket holders? - as instead the NME went inside to watch the gig rather than cover the story.

The problem seems to be a change in venue - NME says the switch came the day before, although actually the announcement the gig was moving indoors came on Wednesday; Hackney Council had imposed impossible licence conditions for the Hearne Street Car Park venue and so the whole thing had to be shifted to Cargo. It appears that you can fit less people in a Cargo hold than in a Car Park, then.

Yes, so all the people who had turned up to the car park had to traipse all the way back to Cargo to be confronted with the biggest queue in E1. Shame the council chose not to allow it at the original venue; lots of disappointed Fujia & Miyage fans!
