Kiosque a Musique.

We spent a lovely afternoon at the bandstand in Portsmouth today, even though we were very annoyed that we missed a great band called the White Coats due to not sleeping the night before and staying in bed til 1! However we caught a glimpse at a few other locals who were also quite good. Looking forward to next Sunday to see who will be playing:)

We also purchased some yummy ben and jerrys cookie dough ice cream and ate it on the common, feeling very sick after but enjoying the moment all the same.

Portsmouth is amazing at 5 in the morning. Empty. Quiet. strangeee.... but AMAZING! We laid down on busy roads, WITHOUT BEING SQUASHED. fun times.

we stole a tennis ball, felt rebellious, and commented on piss-filled bottles. We rolled down by the school of dance too. hahaha.

Got Us Some Virgins! WEDGEWOOD ROOMS 1/7/09

yo loverrrrs.
we made our way to a lovely little venue called The Wedgewood Rooms on wednesday. We saw The Virgins. It were brill. Two kinda crappy supports, Clayton Strange, some localers, and Overreact, this band that said, 'you might have heard us on radio 1, if you listen at like 3 in the morning'. Fun times...

They came about 10 ish, everyone was a bit restless by then. It surprisingly didn't sell out, but was goood all the same. There were these two guys at the front who knew every single word and got some drumsticks at the end, lucky buggers. Donald Cummings was all hands on hips, dancing, tres sweaty by the end, IN A JUMPER! but soooooo cool. It was verrrrrry good. boiling, and we want to see them again.

They played...
1. Teen Lovers (an unexpected opener)
2. Radio Christiane
3. She's Expensive
4. Hey Hey Girl
5. Love Is Colder Than Death
6. Murder
7. Fernando Pando (crowds push and shove, down a street, in a bus!)
8. Rich Girl
9. Private Affair
10. Love Is Colder Than Death (PARTDEUX)
11. One Week Of Danger
