Been on a total English band music binge or something at the moment.
…music videos incoming…
Had a lovely day in London yesterday. Having never really been to London it was nice to explore. As Camden is right next to Euston Station that was explored first. Absolutely loved it, and I found a lovely little coffee shop with friendly staff and a plug to charge my phone.
I managed to navigate the tube, which had been a concern of mine. It was easy. H&M however was less easy to navigate. 6 floors and all I wanted was a pair of socks. Had a mooch about Oxford Street (probably not the best plan on a Saturday afternoon) too.
Got to hang out with a friend in the afternoon. We had amazing iced tea at Yumchaa in Soho, had cocktails at Roadhouse and practically got accused of having fake ID in another bar (damn these youthful good looks, haha) Got given a quick tour of the city centre by my friend which was fun.
Went to Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes for another friend’s 30th. I’m so bad at ten pin bowling but gosh, it’s so much fun. Live music too, including a set by the birthday boy. I’ve been to 2 30th parties this summer. Both have featured live music sets. I want a 30th party now!!
Ended up doing sambuca shots and trying to drink my friend’s vodka and coke that we’re pretty sure was more vodka than coke. Somehow didn’t get drunk and strolled back to my friend’s flat to crash out after.
It was fun. So, so much fun.
Working 10 hour days tomorrow and Thursday.
Out tomorrow, Thursday and Friday nights.
Get a 04:30 train to London Saturday morning and will be out until the wee small hours.
Get a 09:00 train back to Glasgow Sunday morning.
I’m too old for this shit.
I want to see Medals again, like now. I still can’t quite put into words how that gig was. It doesn’t feel like a new band either, it just feels like an evolution of Sucioperro.
The best word I can use right now for the gig is: Comforting. That makes no sense, but that’s how it was. It’s a yep, I know that feeling, I know that place, I know it’s going to be OK one day.
Urghh… all the feelings!
