Two Door Cinema Club

Two Door Cinema club are one of my FAVOURITE bands and myself and the boy secured tickets to see them live at Alexandra Palace in North London last October. It was the best day of my life so far; getting quite drunk in the Wetherspoons near the venue, munching sandwiches in the queue, drinking cider quietly at the back ignoring the support acts then going absolutely mental when the great band came on stage. One girl said I looked very Irish... must be the hair and freckles.

The Pigeon Detectives

Two gigs in two years is awesome for me! Usually, the bands I like either don't tour or choose ridiculous venues whereby tickets disappear like gold dust, so I was very happy when a) I found out The Pigeons were touring (see what I did there ;)), and b), that they'd chosen the Electric Ballroom in Camden which isn't too far away.



We started the day in The Imperial War museum, as I've wanted to go there for ages, and it was incredible, especially the Holocaust exhibition and the 'Secret War' section. It was so big we didn't have time to see everything, but we'll definitely return at some point.

After that it was time for some food and drink, and of course it had to be a Spoons (The Ice Wharf in Camden to be precise), and it was lovely - sun, wine, lots of happy people (I almost didn't want to leave!) But of course we had to, and at around 7.15p.m we found ourselves in this awesome, dark nightclub drinking cider and beer - eagerly awaiting The Pigeons…

The Last Shadow Puppets

I've been a fan of Mr Alex Turner since I first heard that classic 'I bet you good on the dance floor' aged 15 in 2006, and the rest is history. I own every Monkeys album, even the Submarine soundtrack, and was delighted when Turner formed a side project with Miles Kane in 2007/8. Very different from the Monkeys, The Last Shadow Puppets are still a unique band who use fantastic harmonies, and Turner again proves his skill as a lyricist.
It's such a pity then, that I've never seen the Monkeys... BUT...

I saw the Puppets earlier on in July! And they were amazing.


The venue was also amazing (Alexandra Palace, saw Two Door Cinema Club there in 2013), and holds up to 7,000 people! Built in 1873 (rebuilt in 1875 after a fire), it was The Crystal Palace's rival and was named Alexandra after the then Prince Edward's bride 'Alexandra of Denmark'. A place for recreation, education and entertainment, not much has changed then, in truth!.



I'm hoping that on…

Days Out

Been a mad couple of months so haven't had much time to post! Firstly, I and my husband will be moving to a new flat next month (x-D), been busy with University, and have been writng 1,500-1,900 words most days on my novel about Edward the Martyr and Aethelred the Unready! Its nowhere near finished, but its a very enjoyable process so I kind of don't want it to end!

In regards to days out, we went on our yearly trip to Hadleigh Castle last month:
