Many many thanks to all you lovely people who made it to the Cavendish Arms last night. You were all fantastic, even @dunkr, whose kazoo solo was one of the weirdest to date. Seriously though, the participation in Buzzer Goes, Do What You Must and Looking For Answers was amazing.
Thanks to Mr AG for the below video. Please do share it around.
We had a little technical issuye at the start of the gig, so apologies for the ramshackle start. All intended to make you feel part of the authentic experience I assure you. Took us a little while to get our footing after that, but I think by the time we got to Looking For Answers we were in.
If you have any pics, vids or audio from the night, please do pop it up online and tag it hopeandsocial and “hope and social”, that way, it’ll show up on our loverly website!
Loving playing “In Hope” on this tour. Haven’t done so really until now and James’ brass line, which follows the line that Margaret (our friendly pensioner choirgirl) really gives me the spine-tingler. Thanks James, Katie and obviously our Gary on kit for coming down and making the effort again… hankering after another Glasto appearance me thinks. [wink]
Lovely venue the Cavendish. Sneak a peek of us at soundcheck:
Bop Social were great also. Can’t thank you guys enough for coming down. Good show, and lovely to see you (Ed and I recorded the Bop’s EP, and their first ever demo – we have a vested interest). It’s great to see them enjoying themselves these days, and to see them motivated and pushing things forward for themselves. Their set at Wedstock was one of the highlights for me, especially liked being asked by a girl I was dancing next to “Are they famous then…? Coz you know all the words!”
London afterwards proved not quite the 24 hour city it promises to be. Apparently, we needed to head to Soho, not Kings Cross for evening shenanigans. Hell, it didn’t stop us going back to a Travelodge room and drinking two cans of Carlsberg though. Oh no, let it never be said that we can’t start a party from very little party kindling.
