Wed 14 May – Johnny Flynn
As usual I'm writing this because I'm about to go to another gig and I want to get this down before I forget it entirely...
Gig was at the ICA, which is right on the Mall in the middle of London. This makes going to it an enjoyable experience for me as I've only been in london 9 months, and I still get a kick out of wandering through Trafalgar square not as a tourist but because I actually have to walk through it to get where I want to go. However the ICA, being in central London, is very nice but definitely expensive drinks wise. As for the actual room the gig was held in, it was nothing special, just a big black box, but it was nice and spacious, I could see the band and I didn't suffocate and die with heat, so I was happy.
We got in in time to catch two or three songs from Melodica, Melody and Me
. They were a five piece playing country style rolling beats with the exxciting difference that they had two Melodica players in addition to the usual guitars and drums. …
