Michael McGoldrick, John McCusker and John Doyle at the Sage Gateshead. What an impressive venue!
I like trad best when it is kept simple. Nothing worse than too many instruments clogging up a tune. These guys are absolute masters and the gig was spellbinding. When it comes to flute playing, McGoldrick is God.

I didn't get a chance to post, but Frightened Rabbit was a really special show. They were on for nearly two hours and played absolutely everything. The crowd was into it, the band was into it, the magic was there and it was amazing.

So much fun.

Ben Marwood was very good in Cheltenham last night. Pulling out a cover of 'No Children' for his second encore was brilliant.

Enjoyed the Retrospective Soundtrack Players, especially the new song that Ben Marwood join them onstage for. And Joe Summers was awesome as usual - incredible voice - I really thought his solo career would have taken off by now but hopefully this year it will with a new album out.

Just saw Arctic Monkeys in Richmond, Va., Boston, NYC (Madison Square Garden, their biggest headline gig in the U.S. yet), Covington, Ky., and Columbus last week. Lots of driving and freezing my butt off but totally worth it. Very cool to see them in a 20,000-person venue, then drive 700 miles and see them in a 1,200 venue a day later. They are immense in both settings. MSG gig was especially great, included a visit from Miles Kane for 505 and a Beatles cover, All My Loving, to honor the 50th anniversary of their appearance on Ed Sullivan. I'm hooked to say the least ... I may end up going over for their Finsbury Park gigs if I can work out the logistics.
After this last run I have no gigs until May ... ouch. Hopefully I can get to Beans On Toast in Philadelphia in March.

Saw Emily Barker & the Red Clay Halo at King's Place, London last night. I had seen them at festivals before, but this was my first time seeing a proper headline show. It was excellent.
I love the somewhat non-conventional instruments and they create a big sound with them. To fit in with the Americana theme of the evening they even brought on somebody who played pedal steel guitar (!). Support act Austin Lucas guested on "Fields of June".
The set included a beautiful Tom Waits cover ("Day after tomorrow") and just when I thought things couldn't get better they finished with a Springsteen song ("Tougher than the rest").

Hope he plays that tomorrow night in Swindon!

Looking forward to the Band of Horses gig on Sunday. It's an acoustic set.

Got tickets for two Glasgow concerts, one with The Hold Steady, one with Aiden Moffat. Both should be ace.

Koo Koo Kanga Roo is coming to Milwaukee to play a show for my birthday.
I can't even handle how rad of dudes they are. I shot them an email just on the off chance that they may be willing to, and they said yes without hesitation.

Koo Koo Kanga Roo at Stonefly Brewery
with Flying Blind
Wednesday, March 5th at 9:30pm
$5 cover
735 E Center St.
Milwaukee, WI 53212


Since it's my birthday party there will be cupcakes and friendship bracelets for everybody!
If you're a Midwesterner and want to dance your face off next Wednesday, you should come check it out.
I mean, Frank said it: "They're the greatest band in the whole world!"

Drag the River (Jon Snodgrass and Chad Price) was so much fun last night in Gainesville. Everything a show should be. No setlist; just, "What do you guys want to hear us play? And they did.
shows? 90 so far...

You get the best shows, darlenet.

Wil Wagner was so very good - as was Pinchhitter (two guys who do something akin to magic with banjos) and Max Stern, who got off the plane from Ohio that morning and had trouble getting started because his hands were shaking from jet lag. (Oh, and possibly alcohol in quantity and other, er...less than legal...things.) Wil almost left us with Laika (that song is so fucking depressing!) but then did a great solo version of Young Drunk to end it.

Spoke to Wil after and he showed me his uni-roo tattoo, which was fun. The show was ace, that particular record store does a very good instore experience. The sound was good, for a start. Wil broke a string two songs in and just kept going - and we got two new Smith Street songs which if they are any indication means the album is going to be very, very good indeed. I'm a particular fan of Pinchhitter and one of them came up to me after the set and thanked me for singing along and gave me a cuddle. That's somewhat of a first, and I wasn't the only one, but they've seen me around now, I guess? I was happy about it, though. Scored some good Pinchhitter merch, as well.

Given the quantity of alcohol I'd put down and how utterly wasted I was I got lost in the train station I am in every single workday of my life because I was Twittering Katie in the US and got distracted. I did eventually get home!

So a completely ace night over all.

I also scored Billy Bragg tix for a small bar sideshow. Not a huge fan but my friend is, so it should be a great night.

In order coming up for shows: Billy Bragg, Smith Street/Grim Fandango/Menzingers x 2, Jason Isbell

I fell in love with Wil and the SSB last fall on that tour. . Loved their sound (and once I understood what Wil was saying :roll: ) and their lyrics.

Enjoy your upcoming gigs.

Strewth matey, stone the bloody crows. :)

He sounds like a Melbourne boy. You should get hold of his solo album, if you haven't. Laika. Try Poison City Records on the interwebs.
