Last weekend I went to London. I'd pledged via Songkick for Kim Boekbinder's first UK show, and the gig was on Friday night.
The show was at the Sebright Arms, which seems to be a pretty nice pub, quite apart from the cool musicians in the basement.
I met up with friends Mike and Sue, and some lovely friends of theirs.
She Makes War opened the gig - I hadn't heard of her, but I enjoyed her music. (and it turns out she is based in Bristol, so I may be able to see other gigs in the future.
Who played lots of songs from her new album, The Sky Is Calling, (which you should all buy, if you haven't already done so). I've been listening to the album a lot since it came out, and thoroughly enjoyed hearing it live.
What made it even more fun was that Kim was obviously enjoying herself so much. In addition to the music, she told us about bonding with Laura (SheMakesWar) over cheese, and about having a place on Mars names after her.
And at the end of the gig we all got to meet and chat with her, and get lovely posters.
And it was a relatively early end to the gig, so we had time to had about and chat and drink after the gig, too.
Lots of fun.
