“We sing with our heroes 33rpm” – A love letter and farewell to one my favourite bands

I wrote this a few weeks ago but never got around to posting, so here we go. x   Dear Gaslight, For the past three and a half years you’ve been an integral part of my existence. Constantly on repeat on my iPod on my way to uni, on my way to work. Constantly in my speakers in my bedroom – for dancing, for happiness, … Continue reading “We sing with our heroes 33rpm” – A love letter and farewell to one my favourite bands

Reading Festival @ Reading, 30/08/2015

So. Reading. My back hurts, I don’t know how people do this for a whole weekend! But somehow even if on the train back you want nothing more than your bed, you’re still happy. There’s something about festivals that leaves you no option but to be joyful and slightly Hippie. It may be the idea of Woodstock instilled in anyone who really loves music but … Continue reading Reading Festival @ Reading, 30/08/2015

Having said that, I am always more … Continue reading The Gaslight Anthem @Brighton Dome, 10/06/15

The Gaslight Anthem @ Alexandra Palace, 19/11/2014

It had been about a year and a half since I last saw The Gaslight Anthem. That is generally normal for a band, but if it’s one of your favourite bands then it’s way too long.

The Gaslight Anthem @ The Troxy, London, 29/03/2013

My first Gaslight Anthem gig and ooooh I’m in love!! I’ve loved this band for a while now but hadn’t been able to catch them live. If you get a chance, please do yourself the favour and go! Getting to the Troxy was a bit of a trek through East London but we were fine once we got to the venue. It’s a beautiful old … Continue reading The Gaslight Anthem @ The Troxy, London, 29/03/2013
