For fun, assuming we are all crazy on gigs/events so this could be never-ending...
I saw The Prototypes in Brighton last month, major energy from them but the 5am finish truly killed me
Little Dragon last night at Jazz Cafe- INSANE!!!!!!!Especially after a week of being immersed in music at Primavera Sound. Next stop Kali Uchis at Oslo.
Kali Uchis!!! I am so jealous
Yes, my friend got lucky after missing out on for tickets for the show she originally announced at Oslo. I'm sure she'll be back around sometime soon again hopefully.
Last gig I went to was the One Love Manchester concert - very emotional, can't believe I actually managed to get tickets!
Went to Field Day at the weekend. Saw some exceptional acts: Run the Jewels headlined (for me) but King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard possibly edged it for energy. Their set really worked in the festival setting.
This week - Nikki Lane @ Bush Hall, Laurel @ St Pancras Old Church, Buffalo Tom @ Islington Assembly Hall
Saw Kraftwerk last week - think I'm probably in the minority at not being overwhelmed but still love their musik! Something must be wrong as I don't have much in my calendar for the next couple of weeks although may be convinced to head to Hyde Park for Tom Petty - weather allowing!
The Amazons in Manchester were just..... Meet and greet at the end also, what great lads they are! But I have to say, the best for pure vocal ability has to be Charlie Straw. That man's voice comes from the gods!!! The Sherlocks in September and Superorganism in October next!! Can't wait!
This week - Warpaint @ Somerset House (brilliant, in spite of the windy conditions), Rae Morris at The ICA (very good, but very brief show) , Lucy Rose at Rio Cinema (slightly unusual setting, but kind of perfect for the mood).
Goldfrapp at Somerset House. Second time
I've seen them there. Great live band, love the scuzzy sound and how loud the bass is compared to when I hear them on my tinny radio.
Skinny Girl Diet supported by The Franklys (and others but I got there late!). Had been wanting to see SKD for some time and they didn’t disappoint despite being plagued by laryngitis. The Franklys were a bonus and jaw droppingly brilliant.
This week, Regina Spektor at the Apollo, which was - as always - utterly beautiful, and just come away from the Sebright Arms having seen the excellent Hands Off Gretel and the brilliant Skating Polly. Thanks for the free gig tip Dice!
