I love a good gig, especially if it’s fronted by Gary Lightbody 🙂 Throw in REM legend Peter Buck and a collective of other eminent indie musos and you have Tired Pony. They ambitiously planned to do two gigs the same night – I had tickets to the second show (11pm-2:45am) – tired ponies indeed. Reason (or regulation) prevailed, and the second-show-people got the dress circle of the combined gig at north London’s intimate HMV Forum. Venue mgmt was nice enough to let me take in my camera & my slow 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 safari lens, but it was a close call and I’ll apply for a photog pass next time!
Now, who’s up for elbow in March??
