Jesca Hoop at the Borderline last night. Great voice and songs.
First time I've been to the venue - you have to walk past the stage to come in, or (disconcertingly for the band/artist) go out.
Very polite/respectful audience last night - First time I've had to whisper at the bar to avoid putting off the support act (George Ezra).

SEE Revolver TT/CA 540/Ortofon 2M Red.
Lucky you, I caught up with some of their stuff recently, that should be a cracking gig.
Next up for me Stars of the Lid at St.John's of Hackney, quite a nice looking space inside this church, acoustics should be cool esp with a 16 piece orchestra. (10th Dec)
The Killers at the cardiff NIA last week, I swear if they had kept playing I would still be stood listening " />
Got the same report from a friend who saw them in Sheffield. Best gig ever they said. ( I know this thread isn't which gig did your mates go to but you didn't)
Not my last gig, but I've booked for the Richard Thompson band when he tours next March.
Going to see him at the wonderful Lowry Theatre in Salford, and for the first time ever I've got front row seats.
