But, why tell you who it was - it''ll just slip down the page.
No, Mr Traynor, we all await with baited breath. Tell me so I might go on with my life.
You tease. You and Nutini should put on a supershow, I'd pay through my nose for that. Literally, I'd shove tenners through there for such a spectacle. And I know Traynor would too.
at the betsey
all "look how twee i can be" while peddling cheap tawdry songs
She wasn't twee at all.
it was. it is a pre-determined right for icelandic people to sing along in a self-consiously "kooky" manner?
rather than it is (the 2nd time around)
it's only for icelandic women. I've met icelandic men and less ironic viking impersonators you'll never find.
it was glorious.
That's your fault for going to gigs in London
is an excellent venue.
It has chairs to sit upon, great sound, great lighting, draught bitter, and the audience are so close to the "stage". In fact there's a danger of accidently stepping on a piece of equipment while sitting there.
is actually quite high on my list of things that make a venue good. Part of the reason I like the Betsey Trotwood.
Those bloody London venues who look like they have seen an alien when you ask for bitter, and then show you their long list of available crappy bottled lagers from around the world.
The last time I went to Turnmills - and the last time I'll ever go, I'm not setting foot in there again - the only thing available was warm cans of Red Stripe for THREE POUNDS FUCKING FIFTY
A bit annoying that two fine gigs were on the same night
My friend put her on at a monthly gig night he does.
Can't remember too much apart from that I liked her but I'm sure she was good.
The songs are great; her funny between-song anecdotes are great; everything was great.
can't believe I missed this...
