The Enemy at Ibiza Rocks tonight

They say familiarity breeds contempt, so it came as little surprise to learn that tonight’s gig at the San Rafael Hippodrome would be the last at this venue for the time being.

On the other side of the familiarity coin is the fact that the Enemy have played at Ibiza Rocks three times in the last twelve months and most of us are now familiar with their debut album “We’ll Live and Die in these Towns”.

This is cool as it means the pre-party can take place in the car on the way to the gig with the help of the iPod.

Upon arrival we discover that the VIP bit has gone to make room for the ever growing crowd, so our favourite bar staff have been moved upstairs to a terrace with a crap side view of the stage, but a fine view of an almost full moon rising over the stage as darkness descends and the night reaches its climax.

In the face of this powerful wall of sound, remarkably delivered by just three small men from Coventry, the regular rock chicks assigned to the podium resort to waving their arms and inflatable guitars in the air as they realize that all attention is focused on the stage.

When the band depart just before 11 we are left without an encore, but with a view of the trotting race circuit and its magnificent fountain in the centre of a large pond, as we discuss the whereabouts of next week’s gig, to a background of banging tunes through the festival style sound system.

Back to the Magical Mystery Tour then next week?

Another great night…
