and if you're going by car...DON'T!! no parking at all and you've got a good chance of someone scraping your car-side...better to just take the tube, easy + fast! (sounding like a travel agent....)
Something I noticed while I was there was that everyone seems to drive with their mirrors folded in... best way if you don't want to lose 'em I suppose.
Gig now... venue was very small, somewhat larger than the average living room, but small for a gig. Not a very large audience... first on was this girl (I don't know her name) and her guitar, doing some accoustic/folk type songs. She was fairly good. (Apart from wearing a ridiculous hat).
Next should have been The Mexicolas, I was a little bit p***ed off that they weren't there. Instead there was an apallingly crap band called Mavis Tuesday (I've no idea) who were quite boring and went on far too long. Everybody cheered when they announced there last song
Then finally Mohair came on. They were really really good! They just rock, seriously. I'm sure they will be big.
They weren't on for long enough... I think they should have carried on. But at the end they came down off the stage and talked to the people, I went and grabbed a setlist off the stage, borrowed a pen from the bar (
:twisted:) and got it signed by their singer/guitarist guy, which was very cool.
I asked him what had happened to The Mexicolas... he said they'd played together before, but he didn't know what had happened to them that time. :?
I have some photos and video, but they're only from my phone so the quality probably won't be too good.
All in all, it was a pretty good night. Well apart from some lunatic driver trying to kill us, it was fine.
