2011: music

Happy New Year! Wishing you a great 2012!
Over the holiday period, I was looking back over 2011. One of the things I enjoyed doing was seeing some great bands play live. Whilst Cambridge is not the most hip place, we get quite a few good bands playing. In 2011, I saw:
  • White Lies [Great! Saw them first supporting Glasvegas at the Junction, so fun to see them now they have hit the big time]
  • The Hold Steady [Definitely the loudest gig of the year; Matt and I got right down the front]
  • Warpaint [Hot! Love these ladies...]
  • Wild Beasts [Breathtaking. Really love their album. Go and treat yourself...]

I also went to Glastonbury, which was fantastic. Highlights there were U2 (natch), Coldplay, Pulp, Metronomy, The vaccines, and many more. I also played in a gig, although not at the Junction, but that is one of my hopes for 2012!

Thanks to Matt for being the Gig Master!
