Bad weather and worse FOH sound didn’t stop Post War Glamour Girls smashing out an eclectic set of fan favourites on night one of Outlines Festival.
On a cold, wet Friday night in Sheffield, the sodden mass of people filed into The Harvey, eagerly awaiting the band’s arrival to the stage. The historic venue, a hallowed staple of the Sheffield music scene for over 15 years, would be housing one of the stages for the Outlines Festival 2017, an annual music festival held across multiple venues in Sheffield.
Leeds-based alternative outfit Post War Glamour Girls took to the stage to close out the first night of the festival with style. Opening with material plucked from their latest offering; 2015’s ‘Feeling Strange’ and sprinkling the set with fan favourites from ‘Pink Fur’, it was clear from the get go that the crowd were going to get their money’s worth. PWGG’s stage presence and command over the crowd were that of a veteran band, yet they still brought an undeniable air of youthful hunger and a compulsion to give the crowd everything they had.
Despite the band giving 110% all the way through their set, the atmosphere was hugely impacted by the poor quality sound. The instruments lacked clarity and definition in the overall mix, which made it hard to distinguish one instrument from the other. Undeterred by this, the band gave an exceptional performance both in terms of skill and musicality.
