A tale of a Scotsman living in SW london...

Well, last night I went off to see Beth Orton in Shepherds Bush. She was awesome!!!!

She had the whole place focused on her, nobody there was talking (my big annoyance at places like Brixton) and I remembered why I love Shepherds Bush Empire so much.

The new songs really worked for me, we were nice and close and could see all her facial expressions which really helps at a live gig (I'm usually stuck at the back somewhere). I think she played the entire new album, and having listened to it again today coming up in the car it makes SO much more sense having seen her sing it live. Thoroughly recommended gig!

Oh dear lord my head hurts.

A most enjoyable afternoon watching the rugby along with some (england supporting) friends made it even sweeter. And I took a tenner of my mate :-)

Afterwards, up to the pub where a surprise visitor in the form of a mate from work who'd decided to drive from Salsbury just for a few beers. Cracking.

We ended up in the worst nightclub in the world, called Watershed, in Wimbledon. However, fuelled by Sambuca we ended up on the stage dancing all night. A very enjoyable night out! Now, I'm just waiting for the family to arrive and my headache will be complete :-)
