"Making sure they weren’t forgotten in a hurry"

View a photo gallery of Dog Is Dead live at their gig at the O2 Academy, Birmingham on 20th February 2012.

For some bands, it is months before they return to a big venue, years even. However, for Dog is Dead this was their first time playing O2 Academy, Birmingham, and they were making sure they weren’t forgotten in a hurry.

Outside, the crowd was a sea of over-sized glasses, chinos, and girls wearing Beatles and Smiths t-shirts, all waiting patiently to get out of the cold night. The venue itself was small but stylish and filled with many empty spaces, and the first to arrive began to make their way inside.
