Another busy few days in the world of Wichita.
After Bloc’s return to London last Tuesday at a rocking Forum we kept it local over the weekend with the 18th Shoreditch festival of the year “Concrete And Glass’.
Kicked off with a great Port O Brien instore with those lovely folks at Puregroove and then it was down to the serious drinking er gigging.
We started Thursday night with the live return of old mates Good Books.New songs and old alike sounding epic and soaring.Good to have them back.
Nipped around to Favela Chic to catch Little Boots.lots to like about her but the live thing needs a little work yet.
Seems like I wasn’t the only person exited about Bodies of Water finally making it to the uk as the Hoxton Bar + Grill was rammed to the gills.
Don’t know if it was just me who was disappointed tho.a sort of bland proggy vine running through it that did nothing for me at all sadly.
O Death followed them and showed how its done getting the room rocking and hollering in a reminder of earky Pogues raucousness.Good stuff.
Friday left less opportunity for running around as we were hosting our own night at 93 Feet East for the first time since we had a xmas party there in 03 was it?
After a rushed curry at the wonderful Shampeen (its all about the sag uribesi gatta) I hit the decks bang on 7 to wow the first brave souls with my lovers rock set.you could see folks were loving it…..
First band up was Pens.Local favourites and if you’ve run into me in the last couple of months you’ve probably heard quite enough about them already.Awesome as ever we were even treated to a NEW SONG!!Good times.
Next up was Sky larkins third london show in a month and indisputably theri best.Killing it with a great set from the amazing album (wait till you hear it!!)the drive from Leeds to just make the gig was foirgotten as they blew away a packed room.
Then as quicky as they;d come they were gone.Love you Larkin.
