Im gonna drink a lot of gin and go by myself. Because Im that cool.
my friend Laura-Jo is doing a les savy fav special on her radio show on the night before, to get us all in the mood.
I have a vague memory of someone telling me this.
I'm going by the way.
on their myspace....
though that isn't definitive.
me there, i dont know why you lot are bothering
They alone are worth trekking all the way from South London for on a Sunday night.
for okkervil river
i said the same thing about their resemblance to guntrip after the O.R. brighton gig
(before i met j_s at atp) :p
they sound like a drowning poo
have an amazing night, I challenge anyone not to enjoy Les Savy Fav live!
sarah silverman and matt damon. she's fucking him, y'know.
I got my ticket today.
Have to collect it though from the box office. They charge you £2.50 for that priviledge; the fuckers...
Listening to the other bands now. I may turn up at 8:30 and aim to miss the first 2 acts.
Maybe a DiS met up is in order, as so many of us are saying "going on my own"?
the upper street challenge beforehand.
you knows it
messageboards that they're going alone to gigs
Los Camps are playing yeah, just Im not too fussed. Though having never seen them live maybe theyll win me back over.
we'll make a lover of you and move in (too obvious perhaps)
Also on my own.
when Tim Harrington's in the room
and i'll dance like a drunken fool if i want to.
really that bad that we can't get dates / friends / fuck buddies to come with us? Is it the fear of "plague of onces" live maybe?
and a great day of sports as well.
and other things.
and my friend who i am dragging along.
cracking good line-up too.
but I don't know any of you folks.
you are my oldest friend.
though LSF gigs on yr own are good, going by the Scala one. Also, Im gonna make a 'fuck the champagne' t-shirt.
unbeliably amazing at The Scala will be hard for them to top it. I'm sure they'll give it their best though.
I'll make a matching 'we want Gin' one
amazing line up
they were mentally loud, unmusical and amazing. I haven't bought anything since, but their myspace page suggests they're a lot more jangly now and "nice"
Whats the deal? And are the supports any cop? Their myspace profiles too suggest maybe not?
Ignore the above. Thats what happens when you browse with tabs and the bands you're jumping between start with "Los" and "Les"...
On another note, if you like FOTL then download this off the front page. Its an interview with the band available for free as an mp3, and as its by 2 pretty hardcore fans of their work (and mclusky's), I'd like to think it's got a different angle to it than the usual ones. Spread it about too if its your thang:
me plus my friend.
i have a spare ticket. does anyone want it?
didn't wait for me to ask shaun or allieeee!
they've had enough time!!!
it's Mirri's unless she changes her mind.
forgot to bring it up in conversation!!
they'll probably just buy tickets anyway (or has it sold out now?)
which is silly.
if jong jong and the jong jang jong were playing it would have sold out, silly people.
cant bloody wait. los camp better not pull out!
bought my ticket today from the Astoria box office. Fuck you, ticket agencies!
megabus from cardiff-london and back the next day. great days
but not sure if i fancy it on my own :(
going on your own isn't a big deal (at least I hope not, since I do it all the time) and the line-up is obviously top.
Anyone know what the stage times are? I'm not terribly arsed about seeing Cut Off Your Hands.
?????? O/S 18.45 - 18.55
LOS CAMPESINOS! O/S 19.15 - 19.45
FUTURE OF THE LEFT O/S 19.55 - 20.35
LES SAVY FAV O/S 21.05 - 22.15
woo yeah pow, etc.
going to a pub nearby to watch the football first? If so, can you recommend one?
I might go to that Sam Smiths just above Oxford St. before the gig. Good way to get drunk very quickly for less than £15
I may also miss the first two bands. According to the material on their myspace pages they're both a bit shit, right?
they're both top pubs, but the angel edges it cos of the darts.
should be there.
Im reviewing it for Audioscribbler.co.uk
I've seen all year
Phew that was close, thought I was going to have to phone up one of those ghastly ticket agencies and shout at them. See you there!
I can imagine something might get lost in the Astoria especially if the barrier's up. So, yes DiS get your dancing shoes on!
Jim, Jon and I are going. Though in all honesty, I'm only going for the last 2 bands on.
I do love LSF but WOLVES IN THE FUCKING THRONE ROOM ARE PLAYING ON THE SAME NIGHT so I'm going to that
...or so i've been told
Come and see LSF in Bedford.
it involves a ceilidh. Obviously I would rather attend this than LSF...
are totaly awesome. might be able to intentionaly miss the first two now.
Edit - Find - 18.00, and oh look, there it is...
I finish work at 6, now I won't be able to be at the front of the queue.
I suppose I will be able to walk the next day though, my knees were purple for days after the Scala.
That way I will be in London by that point and will be able to come to this
I'm meeting some mates in the Tottenham near Virgin / Zavvi megastore at 5:30. Yeah I know, its a shit pub, but these out of towners eh?
I'll be wearing a bright pink DFA1979 T-shirt for maximum standout, and bemoaning Benitez's managerial skills. Feel free to come talk to us about football, music or... er... actually thats all we talk about...
Right, see some of you later on (maybe). I'm off to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year show. Rock n roll...
my dashing photographic portrayal is available for viewing on my profile page, which would save you the effort of examining peoples "chestal areas" and getting funny looks
My real name is Sean, but answer to Vamos at weekends...
ill be in the montague pyke or whatevers its called before. ill be wearing a lets stay friends les savy fav, say hi if you see me in there or somein
damn lack of edit button.
anyone know whos replacing cut off your hands btw?
lo-fi culture scene
cut off your hands?
in Time Out
but it also has COYH playing still...
i'm so confused! hope JoFo are playing :D
drinks in the angel beforehand?
I can categorically say, that the Wildlife Photographer of the Year show was dependably good as ever
There was even a picture of a Leopard Seal swallowing a penguin whole...
