Not having much joy finding an apartment for Spain, 2 rejections, 2 cost too much and I’ve had 1 reply using a mix of english and spanish which I can’t make head nor tail of. I have 1 other possibility but it seems a bit too far away from where we want to be. We’ll see.
In other news, I got paid yesterday so I’ve gone into a gig ticket buying frenzy…yes a frenzy:
- NME Tour next week (Glasvegas and some other new bands are playing).
- British Sea Power in Feb (their first album is ok-sih and I wouldn’t mind seeing them).
- The Enemy in March
- considering Howling Bells in March too – I think they’re alright, but no other fucker seems to have heard of them apart from me. It’s only £8 so it might be worth a go.
When I weigh up my options of being sat in watching tv or going to see a band who I think are at least ‘alright’ (and within walking distance of my abode), then it becomes a no contest for my live music liking ears.
(before anyone pipes up….yes I do have a shite taste in music!)
I also paid for my Glastonbury ticket yesterday. So it may just be a summer of mud* again for me.
*for anyone not familiar with Glastonbury Festival, it’s notorious, quite rightly so, for being wet and muddy every year. I’ve been 5 times and it’s always rained, none of this ‘light drizzle’ nonsense. I mean proper rain (that wet stuff that falls from the sky and makes grass and fields proper muddy), for at least one day over the 5 days of the festival.
