But it DOES help if you are ...
I'm a lucky bitch - you don't have to say it - I'll say it myself ...
I get to do lots of cool stuff - trips to the beach, festivals, riding around in a beach buggy, climbing trees, walking coastal paths, seeing bands live ...
SEEING BANDS LIVE!!!
In the last few years I've seen The Kaiser Chiefs, Heaven 17, Pop Will Eat Itself, The Stranglers,ummm, and others ...
But on Friday night, I went to see Madness ...
I WENT TO SEE MADNESS!!!!
I was a little bit excited - look:
|HOW excited do I look ...|
Ok, so that might actually be my, 'what am I doing at a racecourse clutching a cup of fairly crap coffee with a lot of people wearing Fez's face ... (honestly - there were LOADS of other people there but they seem to be just out of shot ...)
Hang on, I'll try again:
|Is THIS better??|
Hmmm, maybe not - that's my, 'When is Madness going to start' face ...
But then, after a pint of Gladness (cool name - great beer) things started to liven up a little.
And then a little more:
And then all hell broke loose:
And OMG - what a FANTASTIC night!!!
they erupted onto that stage and took over the world for a couple of hours.
I can honestly say that nothing compare to Madness live and, like I said, I've seen a few bands recently.
The whole place rocked - great venue - great entertainment - such a great, great band ...
If you aren't a lucky bitch like me then let me leave you with this.
One that I kind of overlooked in the 80's but it grows on me more and more every time I listen to it.
Next gig PiL - stay tuned ;-)
