Last night Holly and I had a grandmother looking after Louis and tickets to a gig. Date night! Lots of fun was had.
First, dinner at Arisun, the latest stop on our quest for the best Korean Fried Chicken. I have to say, this one is the goods! Crispy, spicy, unctuous. Mmmm. Brilliant stuff.
Next up, the gig. It's not often we want to see a band and both supports, but this gig had three bands we wanted to see. I'd caught Fishing with Ben Askins late one night at the Peats Ridge Festival, randomly wandering into a tent and really digging them. Holly had done the same with Jinja Safari while I was looking after Louis one night. Holly got to see Cloud Control while I was looking after Louis, so I was keen to catch them at last.
All three bands were great. Fishing are particularly awesome, with a wonky kinda live electronic vibe going on. You can check out their single here. I really like their sound and can't wait for some more releases! Cloud Control were sensational, very polished, and the crowd were rapturous and singing along to every song, which I imagine is a bit novel now they're in London and nobody's ever heard of them.
Pretty exhausting though, given we're used to bed times closer to 21:30...
