I won't show a photo of Dean from Katmandino, but that of the bass player
Katmandino was followed by Chasing Deer (or a part of it, so here are two thirds of the part that turned up)

to the Tate Exchange at Tate Modern, to see what they are up to and say hello to a few peeps.
This week's Who are we? focuses on refugee and migrant art.
Of course while I was there, I had to look at the Slovene living room, with the chairs they designed together with a refugee currently living in Slovenia.
My major disappointment at the show was that I discovered that the UK pen-pushers refused entry visas to two refugees currently living in Slovenia, who the Slovene team wanted to bring along so they could participate at a show dealing with refugees in one of UK's main art institutions (what is all that about?)
The part of Gian Carlo Menotti's opera The Consul that was performed in the space slotted in nicely with the whole visa issue and indicated to the despair and insanity this can lead to.
Once we were chucked out of Tate I was invited to go to Danielle Arnauld's gallery to see Eva Sajovic's Unearthing Elephant exhibition, where I met some nice people
heard an interesting piece with a bit of spoken word/poetry (always love that, me) thrown in
and saw these pieces which made me think that Eva should get in touch with Enya, as they are both Slovenes living in London, but more importantly, they have both recently focused on the space between two strangers in works they recently created.

with Laish (or at least a fragment of the band) at Rough Trade
and then a reminder of how fragile and cheap a human life can be in The Playground Theatre
which just reinforced my constant desire to curl up and wait for it all to end.

always hand picks people who wear their hearts on their sleeves.
Unfortunately I only caught Dave J Giles
and Micah Schnabel today.

of the Magic Numbers at the Green Note (one of the whole band - even though the lighting was very uneven)
and one of only Romeo who was incredibly on form with his 101 anecdotes.
