Yay, yay, yay. The thing I am most excited about this week is seeing Au Revoir Simone. Their new record is brilliant and they’re still in my top 10 live acts of the year. Here is a sweet video where they talk about the album and some other things:
They’re playing Tuesday at Pure Groove and Saturday at (the loathed) Proud Galleries. If you head to The Line Of Best Fit you can read a little piece by Bella Union boss Simon Raymonde about why Proud Galleries is a terrible venue. Tickets are £10 on the door, and it says on the site that the event is 7.30 to 2.30am. But, if it’s like how it was last time I was there on a Saturday, the first band won’t be on until 10. Venue dislike aside, I can’t wait to see Au Revoir Simone again. Also, in the autumn they’re playing a show in the beautiful Union Chapel with one of my most most most favourites, Alessi. Yip!
