I couldn't see another thread where this fitted without being 'off topic'. Apologies if I've missed one, and please delete/ merge as appropriate.

Jeffrey Lewis
Hebden Bridge Trades Club
9.6.2019

I've heard and liked a few songs by Jeffrey Lewis over the years, but not enough to buy an album or see him live. My friends from Hebden's band were supporting, so I mainly went to see them.

I like the Trades Club, it's the perfect size for a venue, for me, they have some good stuff on, and it's generally only a tenner to get in.

Jeffrey Lewis was running his own merch stall, selling his artwork and comics, as well as tee shirts. It was nice to be able to have a chat with him beforehand. His music is very much about the lyrics, so I was interested to see what sort of person he was. He seemed genuinely humorous and self deprecating.

The performance really surprised me. I was expecting him to just stand there and play his songs with his acoustic guitar, but it was more like a proper old fashioned punk gig, mixed with his psychedelic visuals and avant-garde theatrics. I was captivated throughout and really enjoyed it. It was probably one of the most varied performances I've been to. He's on at the Maze in Nottingham tonight; recommended if anyone's in that area and has nothing else to do on a Monday.

I enjoy seeing all kinds of music performed live. It can take the experience to another level, sometimes.

Add the Killers & Moody Blues if you go back over the last twenty years

I’m setting out on a 4 hour journey from Essex up to Keele Uni this coming Saturday to see the fantastic David Gedge and his band The Wedding Present. Yes I know he’s a Leeds born Man Utd fan, but what superb music the great man produces.

Didn't like him as a player. Bang out if order shagging his sister in law and gagging his wife in the press. Time will tell as Wales' coach.

Am an old man now. So what f**k do I know.

Saw David Live and Thin White Duke tours. Amongst others. Was a big Bowie fan.

Songs in the key of life was special.

Faith no more, the Foos. Muse at Reading was a great set.

Clash on Hastings Pier. Clash and Steel Pulse in Rock against race march and Victoria Park.

Cortinas and Beat and Specials.

And a load of my sons gigs.
