Well the day is finally here for Manic Street Preachers‘ show at Neumos and I feel as if I am beginning to get a little shaky already. I missed the Welsh band when they were here in 1996 (I think it was 1996). I almost wish I didn’t know that they had been to Seattle before. I remember the first time I heard the Everlasting really as if it were yesterday and can recall and get those chills immediately. The band has an enormous number of songs – all of them great. I recommend this show as if it could save your life. California’s Nico Vega will open and I’m eager to see them too. I like their singer’s deep voice.
