laptop, geek, MacBook, bursting, breakout

London, baby

Just back from seeing Monkey Swallows the Universe play one of their last gigs before going "on hiatus", whatever that means, dammit *mutter*. They were fab. Went along with miss_mcq, and a good time was had by all. They closed with Ice Cream Man and Jimmy, which couldn't have pleased me more, and did stonking versions of several numbers, including Martin and Sheffield Shanty. Cool as fuck. Oh, and the support, Champion Kickboxer, were good enough for us to want to buy an EP each.

Note to self, and anyone else who might be in Shepherd's Bush for a gig at Bush Hall: the restaurant just down on the other side of the road, the Nepalese Tandoori (that's actually its name) does good food and is really friendly.

Anyway. It's nearly 1am, so I'm off to bed now, but if anyone fancies maybe meeting for lunch in London tomorrow before I head back, I can hang around; am currently in Pimlico.

ETA: Now off for breakfast probably followed by the Tate Modern :)
