On Wednesday i donned my wonderful TARDIS skirt and headed out to see Amanda Fucking Palmer!

I hadn’t been to a concert in a while and this was certainly the one to get me back into the swing of it! As ever, everything was wonderful: from her brilliant supports (Horndog Brass Band, Jherek Bischoff, Simple Pleasure and Bitter Ruin), to sweaty jumping around to Nirvana covers, to making cute new friends in the crowd and all the bits of glitter in between was just perfect. This was truly the best prelude to the house party… and unbelievably made me MORE excited!!! Thank you Amanda 🙂

That awkward moment when you accidently leave your flash on and get an odd photo of the security guy…!

Wonderful kazoo lady!

My most recent musical infatuation is Hannah O’Reilly.

After i say her support Bitter Ruin i have fallen rather deeply in love with her guitar and kazoo playing antics!

Check her out on her bandcamp: Hannah O’Reilly and give her your business!

My favourite song at the moment is Dimes, here is a wee live clip i’ve found (loving the gobby Glaswegian chick in it!):

Bitter Ruin – The Art School, Glasgow – 10.8.2012

11 Aug

Last night i went to see Bitter Ruin at The Art School in Glasgow.

It was bloody brilliant!

No. It was fucking yaldi!!!

Bravo old chaps. Bravo!

 

But before the beautiful Bitter Ruin hit the stage we had a wonderful little set from Hannah O’Reilly

3 cd’s bought and added to my favourites 🙂

If there is one thing you do today, go and download or at least listen to her made up song Meryl Streep  it is fanfuckingtastic!

Here are some pretty little pictures of Hannah:

 

 

 

And now………. BITTER RUIN!!!

It was a beautiful wee set, and if you join their mailing list (and are from Scotland) they will hopefully come back! And you want that! Yes. You do.

Enjoy some awesome pictures:

I’m so excited for the new album now!

Argh! this person’s head! Right in my way!

Although this shot is a little blurry, i love the stare!

My only good shot of Ben… he was standing just out of focus the whole time!

And as a really great end to the set, Bitter Ruin invited the whole crowd up onto stage with them to enjoy an acoustic version of A Brand New Me which i’ve filmed (apologies for the dodgy camera angles, i was a little preoccupied!):

 

 

 

Go and buy all their songs and merch and everything and all of it! and love it!

Go…. here….. now!

Amanda Fucking Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra – HMV Picture House Edinburgh – 25th August 2011

3 Aug

Gloriously fantastically awesome show. Not only did I get to see the beautiful Bitter Ruin again, we were also treated to the wonderful dance of SuperKate and a kick ass orchestral band that I totally forget the name of…. and if that wasn’t enough it was my first little taste of Amanda Palmer with the Grand Theft Orchestra!

My little film of Bitter Ruin’s wonderful song “Beware”

p.s. i went to the Glasgow gig too… check it out here.
