    Swervedriver, The Metro – 18/02/2011

    It was a night of checkered shirts, torn skinny jeans, unzipped hoodies and gazing down at your converse sneakers as you remembered misspent youth smoking weed and not washing your hair. Yes 90’s grunge returned to the metro. Kicking off the show was The Laurels. Meandering shoe gazer rock opened the night and lubricated the
