There were loads of people crammed into the Marlborough (a venue that badly needs air conditioning or a window or a hole in the wall as it gets crazy hot when there's like more than two people in there) and a really fantastic atmosphere throughout. Birdeatsbaby played their set dressed as characters from Alice in Wonderland (awesome) and gave a really excellent performance. On the one hand it's great to see really accomplished musicians playing really well, but the real appeal, as with the support bands too, is seeing a band that's refreshingly different and willing to take a few chances. I picked up the album last night and have been listening this morning - it's really good, go buy it here.
But make sure you buy Ten Dead Men first, obviously.
And go read the first part of my short story here - that one you can get for free.
Here's their latest video:
Okay, I'm done plugging stuff for now. With the Cannes diary and the rest of my short story, plus whatever else comes up, I'm aiming to post a new blog every day this week so be sure to check back regularly. Enjoy the rest of your weekend...
