The guys from Grain are getting very good at selected great acts for a great night out – Against the Grain festival was an eclectic line up of established and up and coming bands and their SILO nights are using the same formula.
The 4th instalment of the SILO nights grouped the very welcome return of Major Leagues with Grace Turner and Sacred Blue.
40 years ago, when I last visited, you could walk in any time. Charles, the lift operator, would take you to the top and you could stay as long as you liked. We tried to be there at midday to get maximum impact of the bells. Charles even used to let us out inside the clock faces and to walk around the dusty archives. We felt very special.
