Haven't been on here in ages, but was at the December 20 gig in Vicar St. and thought it was as good as ever. Nice mix of songs, starting with Rocky with just Paul and Dave and then the next couple of songs with Paul on drums. Was also great to hear First Born live for the first time in years. Paul had to ask for a bit of quiet for some of the gentler songs early on, but I thought things really got going from Tongue on.

Setlist was something like this:

Rocky Took A Lover
A Thousand Little Downers
Next To You
Starlings Over Brighton Pier
Bad Skin Day
The Great Defector
Eve, The Apple of My Eye
My First Born For A Song
The End Is Nigh

Move On Up
Alphabet Soup
Careful What You Wish For

Cool video of The End Is Nigh here: ...

Booked my ticket for the Cambridge gig on Tuesday. Flying solo at a gig for the first time. Very much looking forward to it because I can just walk home after it too.

A thing I discovered from going to gigs alone is that the amount of time waiting between sets is much longer than you realise.

For the first time ever I think , I didn't even attempt to catch any part of the warm up act, mainly because of that fact. Also, I had never heard of Gabriel Kahane.

The boys were in great form last night anyway. It was the first night of the tour so there was some mistakes and rust, but Paul ironed over them with his usual wit. He drew quite a few laughs last night actually. Nice little set. They played for about 90 mins including encore. They opened with Feint Praise and closed on The End is Nigh. Flame was the one that really got people moving, but they did stripped back versions of Eve and I'll See Your Heart and you could have heart a pin drop which was nice.
