6 Jan 2012, 21:24 by TheAlexHOrdered by date, below are the most outstanding gigs I attended in 2011, along with the occasional video and photo I took at them.
Jazz Café, London
A largely wonderful semi-acoustic set, with just Mélanie, a guitarist and keyboardist/pianist, which made a nice change from a full band and suited the songs well. I loved this gig!
The Deaf Institute, Manchester
Great stuff...Doctor Rhythm seemed a bit temperamental but Norman and Euros were definitely playing up to that which added to the laughs. Fantastic sounding vocal harmonies, good songs and great interaction between the duo. I've never seen so many smiling people at a gig. If you're wondering, Doctor Rhythm is a cheap drum-machine.
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Manchester Academy 2
Awesome sounding at times. One of the new songs, Summer Of Dead Souls, was a highlight. …

NMM™ is when KGRL plays all the newly added artists and music (not all of what will be added but representatives). Celebrated about twice a month it's a remarkable event at which many of the KGRL listeners, the flowerites, meet at the flowerbox, the chat box at KGRL's homepage.
Wow!... not only that several awesome songs were debuting on KGRL today (once again), like Claire Fowler's Stay, Cathy Davey's tracks, and more, all four hours of new music captivated me without exception.
A very special event were the guests at the flowerbox during the first hours: Sarah Fimm, Julie Peel, Christine Hoberg, Rachel Zamstein (aka Rachel zamsteen), Maryanna Sokol, Rachel Browne (Field Mouse), Claire Fowler, Amanda Rogers of The Pleasants as also Cindy Brouwer and Jeremy Bose of St. Lola In The Fields. Kate Garchinsky (Co-Producer and Art Director of Indie for Kids), Mike Finkel…

Entre pop, folk et chanson en français et en anglais, on retrouve chez elle la ferveur de Nick Cave, la mélancolie de Françoise Hardy et la fraîcheur de Nancy Sinatra.
Le public qui se presse pour ses concerts l’atteste déjà : sa spontaneité et sa voix singulièrement belle dépassent vite ces références.
Sur scène, Mélanie Pain est aujourd'hui accompagnée de Raphaël Seguinier (batterie), Cédric Le Roux (guitares), et Mathieu Coupat (claviers).
Le 1er album solo de Mélanie sortira en 2008
