Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Live at the Apollo

Hehehe ... this post was written on 11 May but not uploaded. I was lucky enough to see Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds at Hammersmith Apollo.

A 6 hour round trip to see a band? Were we mad? Did we have nothing better to do on a Friday night?

Well, the answer to all these questions was a resounding "no". Admittedly, I would preferred not to spend so long travelling but we knew that would be a problem when we relocated to the West Country. Was the concert worth it? You bet your bottom dollar it was.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds at Hammersmith Apollo. Worth the hassle and a good fun rock was had by all.

Opening with The Night of the Lotus Eaters, Nick (when did we get on first name terms?) sounded a bit hoarse but his voice soon warmed up. Dig Lazarus Dig!!! was then followed by Topulo set against a backdrop of dark clouds. The evening continued mixing new songs with tracks such as Deanna, Red Right Hand (a personal fave), Papa Won't Leave You Henry and Stagger Lee. The last two videos are from Marseille on the 26th April 2008 and front row.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Live!

I have been really remiss about posting, mainly due to work etc. I have entered my really busy season where there are just not enough hours in the day and the last thing I want to do in the evening is log on.

However, today I am on holiday. I am off to London to see Nick Cave. I am so excited and have been looking forward to this treat for ages. I know it will be a really enjoyable evening.

Anyway, in the knitting world I have completed the Purple Perils and they look lovely. DH seems to really like them and they fit well. I had to make a shallower heel than normal to maintain the cable down the length of the sock but it hasn't affected performance.

Finally I blocked my sister's Christmas pressie. It is magic and the stole just looks so beautiful. The girls in the knit club were concerned I was giving it away. Its OK with me though as I know Sue will love it although it might get covered in baby sick! I think Vera will keep me happy.

Sorry but pictures will have to follow as off to London I go!
