(In case any concerts have changed dates/ changed venues/ been cancelled or I've made a typo, you'd be wise to check out the venue websites before heading out the door)

The waiting is over. It's Pixies week! I have it on first hand feedback from my brother (who saw them in Dublin last week) if you're lucky enough to be going you're going to have an awesome time. To give you a taster for what to expect, here's a video of them playing Debaser in Dublin last Friday.

Pixies -Debaser - Dublin 02/10

It's actually a VERY good week for music in London this week and hey it might even be worth you buying two tickets to some of the shows at the end of the week once you've been to the Pure Groove Music Speed Dating evening on Thursday. If you don't find the lady/guy of your dreams then don't worry, I might be interested in taking any spare tickets off your hands, especially if they are for the Pixies.

Hope you have a good week.

(full of love).

It's a crazy week, I'm at gigs every night except Wednesday and Sunday + I would have liked to go to the J. Tillman one.

I need to live & work in London!
