I veer from really liking the Barnett to finding some of her stuff rather pedestrian. Still, she's doing good and I hope you have a brill gig.

I saw aging folk stalwart Micheal Chapman perform a great set on Friday in Sheff and it's the return of Gomez tonight in that there Manchester Royal Albert Halls, playing the whole of Bring in on... yes indeedy!  :)

I know what you mean, but I'm hoping that on stage she'll focus more on the upbeat material. She has a wonderful turn of phrase (and accent - I love the way she pronounces the letter 'o' at the end of words!)

Never actually seen a gig at the Albert halls, but it looks like a great venue now that it's been rescued from being a shitty club and refurbished - a mate saw Faithless there a while back and said it was a cool place.

In an hour our so setting off to see Goat Girl at the Sheffield Picture House, rearranged after the gig was cancelled in April. Anyway whats especially exciting about this is I know next to nothing about them. Its been an age since I just went to gig but my mate Jeff bought ticket after I passed on some vinyl and I'm so stoked to be just popping to a gig for going to a gigs sake... and having just listened to a couple of tracks sounds like it might be a good night to...

... mind work tomorrow daggnabbit so better behave!

Just had a bit of a run of gigs from:

The Rolling Stones - amazing from Mick and the lads, so glad I finally got to see them

The THE at the Royal Albert Hall - a wonderful return from Matt Johnson and great new band

Belly - at the leadmill in Sheff, what did you think Colin?

Ray Lamontagne (snore)

David Byrne - one of the most inventive shows I've seen, so much creativity and energy.

Got a few coming up in July - Eels and Steve Winwood - both in Manchester a day after each other.

No summer festivals for me, I need a bit of a rest!  :)

I enjoyed it. Liked the fact that they were their own support!

Thought the second set was a big improvement on the first and by the end my white belly was indeed up.
