When I saw Laura was playing at Mother Bar it reminded me of the hilarity of this and put images like this in my mind. Only 2 letters difference. Hahaha, I am laughing just reading the synopsis of that episode. “Lucille wants to take Michael, because Buster has become moody after losing his hand.“. So funny.
I had a couple of hours to kill after finishing work, so I took a stroll down to Rough Trade. A couple of the guys from Black Lips were there spinning some tunes. I didn’t stick around for long, I went on an epic walk in search of an arts & crafts shop, which proved to be a less than fruitful venture.
It was with pleasure that 8′o’clock came and I milled back up to Hoxton. I’d never been to Mother Bar before, but it’s a really nice place. It’s got sweet wallpaper and is upstairs, pretty big too. The guy who owns the club, Arnold (?), showed me around, he was very lovely. He played a couple of songs then a Swede called Milena played. I was so ridiculously tired from: a) being at work all day b) my epic walk with my heavy backpack c) staying at a friend’s place the night before because of tube strikes and d) the thought of the long journey back while tubes were still crazy. Then Laura played. It was just her playing solo. She was brilliant. She’s got a lovely voice and some great songs. Listen to her. She also did a Spice Girls cover which was extra win-worthy. I don’t know the name of the song, it wasn’t that zigzag one. Description: fail. Anyway, Laura is really good and worth catching if you get the chance.
