Just back from seeing Monkey Swallows the Universe play one of their last gigs before going "on hiatus", whatever that means, dammit *mutter*. They were fab. Went along with [ profile] miss_mcq, and a good time was had by all. They closed with Ice Cream Man and Jimmy, which couldn't have pleased me more, and did stonking versions of several numbers, including Martin and Sheffield Shanty. Cool as fuck. Oh, and the support, Champion Kickboxer, were good enough for us to want to buy an EP each.

Note to self, and anyone else who might be in Shepherd's Bush for a gig at Bush Hall: the restaurant just down on the other side of the road, the Nepalese Tandoori (that's actually its name) does good food and is really friendly.

Anyway. It's nearly 1am, so I'm off to bed now, but if anyone fancies maybe meeting for lunch in London tomorrow before I head back, I can hang around; am currently in Pimlico.

ETA: Now off for breakfast probably followed by the Tate Modern :)

Luckily, the clocks go back tonight. That'll give me an extra hour for my ears to stop ringing. However, it's quite possible that they'll be ringing for a couple of days solid, because I was...

...that close to the stage at the gig tonight. And the legendary Nick Barrett is quite loud, especially when he's got pretty much every other member of Pendragon, past and present, on stage to help him out.

So. Completely knackered, need to get contact lenses out and go to bed. But, basically, yes, tonight was spent at Riff's Bar in Swindon at the 21st Anniversary gig for Pendragon's album The Jewel. Splendid, loud, friendly, huge fun.

Just back from a stonkingly amazing Thea Gilmore gig at the Fleece in Bristol. I'd forgotten that she was preggers; I haven't seen a woman that pregnant on a stage since Neneh Cherry :) "I'm growing a new roadie." "Just one!?" "I bloody hope so..."

Brilliant set, lots of new stuff, plenty of old stuff, brilliantly together and charming as usual. Lots of full-band songs, with a lovely little section in the middle of just-Thea and just-Thea-and-Nigel. And a lovely crowd; nattered to lots of random people, and met up with a guy I used to work with at NatWest, too.

So. On a bit of a high, now. God knows how long it's going to take me to get to sleep.
