[Gig Pics] The Wildhearts @ Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms

The Wildhearts have long been one of my favourite bands, I’ve been hooked since I first heard Earth Vs The Wildhearts, so I was naturally excited to see them coming to play at my favourite local venue.
Their current tour is in support of their excellent new album, Chutzpah! which they play in full for the first part of the gig before taking a quick break and then doing a 30 minute greatest hits set.  A really great idea and one that very few bands could pull off.

I was fortunate enough to win a competition via twitter answering a question posed by Ginger (@gingernyc).  As I already had tickets for the gig, I asked for a photopass in lieu of the actual prize of two tickets to the gig.
Of course, the gig was amazing and I managed to get some pretty good pics of a great band, with great songs, having a great time.
