Celebrity spotting

I just saw Nick Cave buying cheese in the same supermarket where Jessica and I previously spotted Fatboy Slim.

There’s not much I can add to that.

Laura Cantrell

Now that it’s the weekend, you must be asking yourself “Hmmm… I wonder if Jeremy went to see any concerts organised by The Gilded Palace Of Sin at local intimate venue, The Albert?”

Well, it’s funny you should ask…

I did go to see Laura Cantrell last night. It was a sellout show and I managed to get one of the last tickets.

It was fun. Put me in a room with a country band complete with pedal steel guitar and mandolin, and I’m happy as a pig in whatever it is that makes pigs happy.

That said, I have to admit that their thunder was stolen by the support act, She Haw, who will back to play their own gig next Thursday. To judge from the audience reaction last night, they’re going to pack the house to the rafters.

I’ll be there and I could probably write the journal entry for Thursday night/Friday morning in advance:

“Went to see She Haw. They were great.”
