 Oh man. I've only just seen this. I'm incredibly jealous. That must have been something very special. Jammy git.

 Yeah, it was a pretty special night. I'd 100% recommend seeing him/them(?) if you get a chance. 

 

Weirdly, I discovered the other day that one of my absolute faves, Annie Clark (St Vincent), was in his band for a time. Knew she played with The Polyphonic Spree for a bit, but that was a new one to me. And that's your (not so) daily dose of boring KRG trivia lou_flirt.

I love Sufjan Stevens, a unique talent - did he save Green Door, This Ole House and Julie for the encore?

To see him with Sydney Youngblood as well must have been quite special.

Off to see Dan O'Farrell and the Difference Engine tonight with my mate Halo.

Grant Sharkey is also on the bill and I've wanted to see him for a while too. (Shouty, lefty with a double bass)

Dan's playing what looks like it might be a village hall in Brockwood nr. Alresford. That's rock and roll right there.

@Dubai_Phil Hey Phil, if you like Led Zeppelin, then one of the best Tribute Acts around is playing at Hard Rock in Dubai on the 30th September - They are called Hats off to Led Zeppelin

 That's like about 25 miles from us out here in the sticks but will see what we can do.

Cheers

Another week, another gig. 

Off to see Elder tomorrow, in Camden. Bit of a different one for me, but looking forward to it none the less.

U2 were excellent - as was Gallagher.

We'd declined the ridiculously-priced VIP standing and gone for the ordinary, so we were surprised to end up only five metres from the barrier, which meant the band were behind us on their walkway for the first few numbers.

 

 From this, I surmise that you are, in fact, a dad wearing cargo shorts.

Went to see Ash last night at the Brickyard in Carlisle. Was a very strange day. Bumped into Mark Hamilton (Ash Bassist) as I was walking to the car in Carlisle town centre. Had my photo taken with him. Then we went to the gig in the evening which was as brilliant as ever. But afterwards met Rick (drummer) and Tim Wheeler (lead singer). Liz got her photo with these two, but meeting Mark was the highlight for me, being a bassist and him being my favourite band member. To meet him just in town was very weird and special in one. 

I would also like to point out that about 17 years ago Ash were second on the bill at the Reading festival, yesterday there were tickets on the door for a venue that holds 500 in Carlisle. Saying this, we would never have met them in their previous life!

 Jealous, TiCK.

Just recently discovered him myself.

Does he perform with a band, because there is a lot of instrumentation on his latest album?

Yeah @saintbletch  him +4. He was very good (even in the pissing rain).

I haven't properly listened to him since his output as Bright Eyes. Exceptional song writer. Amusing between songs too.

 I met Tim Wheeler,  years ago in Cardiff, I say met, it was a job.  He seemed really down to earth and non rock diva dude.

Was out to play in Brighton last night and popped in to The Brusnwick (Hove) which is fast becoming my favourite small venue.

It was one of their showcase events and has free entry. If you enjoy your music, like the Brighton area and have enough Bowden shirts to blend in, I'd thoroughly recommend it. 

By far the standout act was Vanessa Forero. She's part Yorkshire part Columbian, played guitar and a 10 string charango and was accompanied by 2 female backing singers who played hand held drums.

You don't get many of those to the pound.

Great sound.

They've only been together for 3 it 4 gigs but they were tremendous.

Even though Early Doors had to cancel their appearance? RIP.

 Yes he seemed really modest and down to earth. Nice chap. Mark Hamilton was funny, as I said to him can I have my photo with you, and also said sorry you must get this all the time. He replied no, no I don't! 😂
