And my first time to The Dome in Tuffnel Park

 where I saw Toodles & the Hectic Pity (for the first time) 

 and Jeffrey Lewis (not for the first time)

and one of the two bolts that were on stage with him.

Longest Day Festival

Yup, it is that time of the year again, and the longest day of the year is here (well by the time I actually got round to writing this post it had already gone... This year I spent it with

 Dominic Silvani

Lucy Kitt

 Prima Queen (there were more of them, but this is the photo I chose for the blog)

Jack Harris

 Gabi Garbutt was there with her band (and sister)

while Ned Roberts did a solo performance

 as did Lorraine Wood

while Our Man in the Field was actually hiding in the basement

the main focus in Holloway Jug Band was of course on the man with a jug

and Gabriel Moreno came with his band and pocketful of poetry

 Forty Elephant Gang forgot the elephants at home (unfortunately)

 Rob Corcoran started wrapping up the evening

and Robert Chaney brought it all to the end. 
(And all of this - and more (I just couldn't see all of the acts) - took place on the three floors of the Betsy Trotwood)

An evening at The Coronet Theatre

 with Lail Arad (who sung the EU song for us - and many others obviously )

and JF Robitaille (and together they made the video for The Photograph in the same room that they held the concert tonight).

Saturday lunchtime, Rough Trade East. It is nice to have a break from work sometimes.
