april happenings
spring has arrived. and with it, i wasn't inspired to do any spring cleaning, but i did get the d.i.y. bug - and not of the diy gig variety.... (talking of which, i wonder how emily's thesis went - wonder if we'll get a peek any time). i did manage to get to a few gigs in april, mainly quiet stuff. although it went out with a bit of a bang. BLK JKS from johannesburg. they got my toes tapping and my chops asmiling. which was mainly the drummer's fault.
blk jks

what else...
i really enjoyed, loney dear + snowbird (stephanie dosen/simon reymonde) + fran rodgers. loney dear was teaching us to sing in this shot. i don't mind a bit of audience participation sometimes.

of the support acts, stephanie dosen was a bit bonkers (between songs).

and fran was lovely; her set didn't quite bring me to the verge of tears like it did last october time (very raw.... you had to be there!), but then, that's ok. i don't usually want to cry at gigs. and i do generally manage to avoid it in fact.

hmm. there was also broken records and the leisure society sometime earlier in the month (not on the same night). ok i thought, not overly blown away.

although other people are obviously impressed with TLS.
