Great weekend here and much thanks to Alex for organising much of it. Started with some tickets for Vampire Weekend I got from Ebay in the cavernous Alexander Palace. Great acoustic and soon everyone was warm from jumping. Friday was a cool party at Farrah’s in Wapping. Lucija, a friend from Oxford came along too and the night ended somewhere around 5am. We skated home via 20 Chicken McNuggets. No explanation possible.
I met up with Andy Taylor from Korea on Saturday for some drinks and followed it up with seeing Frankie Boyle at the Hammersmith Apollo. The man was predictably funny and crude though his handling of the mild cheers and woops seemed pretty damn serious. If only, Newcastle hadn’t got hammered today, it would have been near perfect.
Back in Nottingham now for my last week, gathering books to write and study from, making the plans for the new year (watch this space) and preparing for Arcade Fire this Thursday in Cardiff and some London parties as well as an eight-year hitch to meet up with Maz again on Monday. Ha!
