Wales Uber Alles pre-show singer

I got to the Lexington and they were delayed opening the doors to let us upstairs, so I took a seat with Creepy Spanish Guy (CSG). I don’t think CSG has been properly introduced on my blog. He’s this creepy guy who is apparently Spanish and apparently works in a hotel. He stares at you and will suddenly appear behind you out of nowhere. I see him several times a week. Creepy.

Anyway…. moving on. Not long after I sat down a girl jumped up onto a raised platform in the bar and started tapping her guitar and singing a cappella. After the song she said she’d just do us a few songs while we waited to go upstairs. For the first song the bar went silent. I thought this impromptu performance was absolutely brilliant, and also quite brave. Eventually the chatter got louder and louder and after a few more songs she jumped down and finished. I don’t know who she is but I thought that was wonderful.

    come to think of it there was a guy who fits the bill of CSG staring over on Sat, i even pointed him out to the other half – i thought it might be someone trying to work out who writes which music blog. creepy.

    I seriously see him so often. Last week he was at Neko Case, Chairlift, Vetiver, Wales Uber Alles… probably others that I forgot too. He wears black and stands with his arms folded. Months and months ago I tried to say hi, seeing as I see him alone all the time I thought it would be a nice gesture, he mumbled and avoided me. Hah.

    I am expecting to see The Rock tonight at Howling Bells. The Rock only goes to shows with lady lead singers. London has so many characters!
