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.

Bess Atwell

Faye Webster @ Rough Trade East

I though a bit of live music and taking a few photographs would be an excellent midday break and get my brain working again, but the melancholic sounds did not really cure my Monday melancholia.

Sound Unbound

A wonderful two day festival in and around The Barbican, where I saw a few great venues and a few interesting performances. This photo is of Liam Bryne playing at the Charterhouse.

Day 1 of Portobello live

 It all started off, early in afternoon, with Portobello Live Choir at Maxilla Social Club

followed by The Beautiful Thing, after which I walked to the Italian Job to listen to some poetry (and music, and book readings) where I heard and saw 

Marrk Jackkson

Ray 'Roughler' Jones

Tommy Kennedy IV

Alexa Maclean

Angel Strong

Sophia Milner

Chris Chasney, and which I decided it was time to move again, so I went to Mau-Mau, for something completely different 

in the form of Philips Man & Lolo

But didn't stop there for long, as I was meeting some friends at Maxilla, so back to Maxilla and some Lily Bud

Freak Elite

Richard Strange

After all of that I walked to Subterania to see Kitty, Daisy

and Lewis after which I called it a night.
