A lot of people seem to like Spoon.
I haven’t managed to make time for them yet – hopefully, having seen them live, I’ll be able to make the connection when I do.
You already know that I like the New Pornographers.
It’s the first time I’ve been to Koko in Camden. It’s a fantastic venue – built as a theatre in 1900, and still apparently retaining much of the internal structure. Lots of levels, lots of balconies; spacious and intimate at the same time.
Also, tried out my earplugs. I’ve become far too used to a little bit of pain at the start of gigs, and acclimatising is hardly doing my ears any good. They worked really well – taking out the volume meant I could appreciate detail I’d have missed otherwise, and it would be nice to have a little bit longer before I go totally deaf.
