The Social, Little Portland St - just announced on 6 Music
and before or after his pre-core?
the one in Leicester Square got cancelled
time? what time?
I'll be leaving the office early...
WAAAHAHHHAHAHHHHHHH. to go or not to go???
gotta leave the house soonish.
as i'd have to leave early and shit and its slightly further away than t'other one. boo.
If it's just been announced on 6 music?
"Secret" gigs piss me off. They smack of PR and elitism and they are usually in some poncey London venue and full up with celebrities.
Announce your gigs fairly so all your fans have a crack of the whip.
but it was more of a secret before the 6 music announcement. all the locations for his pre-core gigs have been announced on his forums long in advance, except this one has been moved from its previous location outside a pub to the social, which is a bit of a shame really but anyway.
im shit at navigating that part of town.
doubt i'd get there on time
walk up great portland st
turn right at little portland st
Some of us have got jobs, you know.
work 5 mins away from the social and will be leaving work early
I'm covering for someone who's off sick all week, and have a load of proofs to sign off. These things happen, I guess. I'll make her buy me a drink when she's back in.
but would take about an hour to get there cos east london's tubiness is craaap
crikey you two, you get everywhere.
thanks for the heads up.
i was right at the front and he played my request of 'motorway to roswell' - one of my favourite pixies songs! wooo, so good to hear it. i don't think he's played it live in fifteen years.
also, there was a hot gent near the front i wish i'd spoken more to. he was wearing feist, regina spektor, architecture in helsinki (can you guess his sexuality yet?) badges, and was right near the front too. what are the chances he's reading this?
Frank Black was fantastic, I think I enjoyed that set more than Pixies at Brixton a few years ago. And he was not what I expected- charming, funny, not as ugly as I remembered...also spoke to Chris Morris and Richard Ayoade after the gig which was cool, and Radio 6 asked for my words on the gig (which they won't air, I hope, it sounded dreadful). Good times!
Glad I decided to leave work early for that. :-)
that actually was Chris Morris? I thought it was just a massive lookalike
That was superb, though I had an awkward moment when he arrived at the venue and just started talking to me outside and I stood there a bit starstruck. I lose.
hahahaha, that was amazing. i was just standing behind him wondering if he would just shut up for a second so i could push past you in the queue.
me and my mate ;) i look like a clown.
The Chris Morris thing was weird, he was with Richard Ayoade so I just guessed it was him. I have the ugliest photo of him on my phone!
i got there about 5.10 after getting a boots meal deal and saw the queue was getting a bit long so thought i might have to hurry up a bit - threw away the meal deal and then walked around the corner to find a bin. luckily my brother was first in the queue so i just had to slyly walk past everyone and make sure they realised i was going to him, but when i was finally going to attempt it i was blocked off by frank black having a chat with roastthemonaspit (http://photos-a.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sf2p/v188/55/118/200901808/n200901808_32090848_6203.jpg) and (http://photos-b.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sf2p/v188/55/118/200901808/n200901808_32090849_6431.jpg)
finally made it in and the gig was great. played a couple of pixies songs and a lot off his new album. i was stood right at the front but i think i was too close because a couple of times he hit me with his guitar head, prompting him to stroke my face and ask me if i was alright :D
got a nice picture with him afterwards in the red red light (http://photos-c.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sf2p/v188/55/118/200901808/n200901808_32090850_6663.jpg)
look like the lead singer from Hard- Fi?
Also who was the twat about third in the queue that kept on having a go at people that he thought looked like they were trying to push in, what a tut.
does look like the lead singer of Hard-Fi :D hahahahaha. well he did yesterday, anyway...
i think the guy having a go at people who he thought were pushing in is friends with roastthemonaspit...not sure though.
.... that roastthemonaspit CRUELLY slighted frank black francis charlie thompson:
Is it just me or is Frank Black actually not that ugly at all?
his fingers are amazingly huge though. i gotta get me some of those.
