Thanks! I just realised on re-reading that it was your blog's upcoming gigs list that alerted me to St Vincent being on. Which I went to. Which was an excellent gig indeed. And had the added bonus of my first ever press pass. And here is my review of said gig I've enjoyed reading your blog for a little while now, cheers!

Dear Catshoe (Cat Shoe? Cats Hoe?) - thanks for kind words. Glad to be of assistance. And great review - makes me annoyed to have missed it myself!

Cat Shoe. Long story cut short, I have a history of cats pissing in my shoes.
On the other hand, Mike also works
Cheers !
