Agreed. My favourite Weegie!

Did Boo Hewerdine sing Patience Of Angels? Love that song; great to see it given back. 

How was Nick Lowe? Saw him solo acoustic last year and enjoyed the show a lot. Couldn't fit it his Milton Keynes show, unfortunately. Great memories of seeing him regularly with Rockpile back in the day. That green ? suit!

Going to have to cut back next year if our hero gets out on the road. Fingers crossed.

Yes, Boo sang that. There were also a couple of songs with Siobhan Miller. I saw her supporting Eddi last year but didn't remember her being as good as she was. Eddi also brought on a local-ish girl called Katie Spencer who did a song.

Coincidentally Katie had also supported Nick Lowe on Tuesday. I thought he was terrific. Mid set, Los Straitjackets did a few instrumentals including I Love The Sound Of Breaking Glass, meaning that Nick didn't sing that. Highlights, to me, were Cruel To Be Kind and I Knew The Bride, two songs that I've loved for 40 years.

Been a quiet year so far.  Expenses!

25 Jan     Skids                                                           Oxford
12 Mar    The Stranglers                                           Reading
6 June     John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett            local venue
14 July    Grace Jones                                              Blackheath Festival 
                 Rag'n'Bone Man
                 UB40 (Ali & Astro)

13 Sep    China Crisis                                                Reading
14 Nov    Ezra Furman                                              Kentish Town

Hope to fill in some more.

Grace Jones was utterly fabulous!  She was the only reason I went to that as I've been wanting to see her for a long time, but she only seems to do festival-type gigs these days, which isn't usually convenient.  Should another opportunity to see her come along, I shall not hesitate.

Josh Ritter yesterday evening at Union Chapel, Islington - what a fantastic show. He and the band squashed into the pulpit for a few songs, which was pretty special. He has such a great stage presence and really looks like he is enjoying himself. He sung a new song 'Gospel of America', simply stunning.

An enjoyable night out. Good but not great. Others may disagree, of course.

The stumbling block for me is that, when all is said and done, they're a bit of a one trick (rockabilly) pony. After an hour or so I was finding it a bit samey. 

Great to see the effort folks went to dress for the occasion, tho'. Be-quiffed, heavily tattooed rockers and girls in great 50's style dresses. Would loved to have taken some pics in the q but a bit intimidating! I'm guessing they'll attract a similar if not more so crowd stateside?

Well if Brian is back ...maybe Donington next year?:)

Ramour has it he's back. So are Phil and Cliff, supposedly.

If I could have one wish for the concert summer of 2020 it would be AC/DC at Camp Nou in Barcelona.

Saw Jackson Browne last night in Missoula at what was the opening night of his tour. It was an outdoor venue which ended up being cleared out right before the show was to start do to an advancing thunder storm. The show started two hours late but was very enjoyable. His voice was a little rough in a few songs but overall good. The sound was great. It wasn't cranked up so I didn't have to use my music earplugs and you could hear each instrument. I had seen him once before back in 1983 in Syracuse.

Added a couple at the end of August. Martyn Joseph we know all about, but Israel Nash is a new name to me. Pocklington Arts Centre punches well above its weight in booking acts into a 200 seat venue 10 miles outside York in the middle of nowhere.

I've been booking to see acts I don't know in an attempt to lower the average age of my list whilst increasing the street cred! Israel Nash is one such booking. Listening to his new album now and it sounds like it could be a great show.
