1. Pamelia Kurstin at the Bath International Music Festival (after having spent the day with her)
2. my band, in a church in Newcastle, supporting Kikuri (I got to play "Stairway To Heaven" backwards in church, to 150 noise fans sat politely in wooden pews)
3. Metallica at the O2 for a fiver (just so I'm including something you lot will have heard of)

...That's What I Call Music?

I've heard of Bath. Don't know what Newcastle is though, it sounds scary.


Okay, I'm going to say:
End Of The Road Festival - Larmer Tree Fields, Dorset That was an awesome weekend. This might be cheating, I don't know.
Silver Jews at ULU - really pulled it all together, I just wished I'd known more of the songs at the time. (the Mountain Goats at ULU were actually a bit more awesome, and John Darnielle shouted "HAIL SATAN" into my face and it was ace, but they played End Of The Road so I'm volunteering that space.)
Daniel Kitson at Hull Truck Theatre He even let me share his taxi from Doncaster when we missed our connection! 'Twas a good birthday.

And special mention to Art Brut who always, always feel like the funnest thing I could possibly be doing at that moment.

1 - Foo Fighters at City Of Manchester Stadium - Dave Grohl = best frontman around at the minute
2 - Michael McIntyre at the New Theatre in Oxford - Just kept laughing all the way through. My face hurt at the end of the gig.
3 - Probably Russell Howard at the Playhouse in Oxford - Was also brilliant.

Can't remember when I went to see Lee Mack and Rich Hall though.. if Rich Hall was this year, then I'd swap Russell Howard for him. Not too sure when that was though...

I'd just want to shove in Nine Lessons And Carols For Godless People, the weekend before last. Robin Ince, Stewart Lee, Richard Dawkins, Simon Singh, Josie Long, Tim Minchin, Jarvis Cocker, Ben Goldacre, Dara O'Brien, Ricky Gervais, Chris Addison, Malcolm Middleton, Darren Hayman, Isy Suttie, Mark Thomas...I know I'm leaving a few people out.
It was absolutely absolutely fantastic.

1. = Ed Byrne at the Gulbenkian at uni
1. = Tim Minchin, likewise
2. Jimmy Carr at The Anvil in Basingstoke
3. Frankie Boyle at the Theatre Royal in Winchester. Not because he was particularly great, but because we were in the second row and practically all of my friends got picked on.

My friend left her third row seat in the interval at Jimmy Carr to go to her work Chrismas party so I spent the second (better) half worried I might become a target in her absence crazy

Numbered properly.

I am praying that The Duckworth Lewis Method tour this summer cos pop songs about cricket will surely be fantastic.

So far,

1 = Half Man Half Biscuit at Komedia in Bath with Schaf. Great set list with a mix of their old and new stuff  upsmiley Was chuffed when they played Sealclubbing  biggrin and For What Is Chatteris?

2 = Ross Noble at the New Theatre in Oxford. First half was very funny, second half was a bit shit actually. Although, in the second half, I did laugh quite a lot at one thing, but I can't remember what.

3 = not been yet but Dinosaur Jr at he O2 Academy in Oxford with Mike. Mainly because these are the only 3 gigs that I'll have been to this year, and I don't have any others planned. After tonight, this may jump up a place or two.
