Sufjan Stevens, Shepherds Bush Empire

(viewed 1786 times)
In an evening full of charm and whimsy (not to mention beautiful tunes), possibly the funniest element was listening to the touts outside the venue doing their traditional "tickets, buy or sell" routine. But completely avoiding saying what they were buying or selling tickets for, presumably because they didn't know how to pronounce his name...

(It's soof-yan, by the way. Though the guy who brought the band on stage initially introduced him as "Sujfan Stevens".)

Neville Staple, The Standard

Rare London gig by the former vocalist with The Specials and Fun Boy Three. Okay, so he mostly did backing vocals back then, but he's still bloody good, helped by an incredibly tight backing band.

Just managed to get all ten of them in the same shot.

Xylophone Buggery

Rob Manuel, Ginger Fuhrer of, giving his illustrated lecture A Short History Of Saving The Web at the King's Head Theatre, Islington. Here, he's explaining how his Buffy Swearing Keyboard became so popular, one of the key phrases from it started appearing in graffiti in the real world, accompanied by a picture of a man bearing a xylophone and an erection.

A one month period of post-Edinburgh detox came to an end tonight at the Cork & Bottle wine bar in Leicester Square, which has this rather fine poster on the wall.
