It’s been a shockingly long time since the last post. I had hopes of creating a travelling music diary during my journey throughout Europe but to be honest it was just too damn difficult.
Internet was not always so easy to come by 2. I was way too busy having fun and 3. Some European cities just aren’t the best for live music.
However I did catch some great shows that I will share with you at a later date but for now Suppertime Frolics is going through some changes and therefore I will not be posting for a little while yet. I promise you it will not take me 6 months…maybe just one…and a half…plus two days.
Until then keep searching for new tunes. They’re coming out of my ears at the moment! Give Laurel a listen, she’s an absolute babe and I can’t wait to see her grow into the next (but wayyyy more talented) Lana Del Rey.
Just a little me post. Firstly, I’m moving to London in 2 weeks!!!!! Ahhh it’s come along so fast and all of the things I hope to achieve have never felt so reachable. I’ve never been confident in anything I do but all of the love and support I’ve had over the past year has really helped me grow as a person. Today I received my copy of Axiom. Instant high. I have three more gigs to attend before I leave, The Jezabels, The Presets and ARCTIC MONKEYS! It’s going to be a crazy couple of weeks and I am so happy with where my life has and will take me. Here’s a picture of my overly happy mug with my You Am I article :):)
This week saw me attend two very different but equally as fun gigs.
I’d been looking forward to seeing Elizabeth Rose for a while and when I finally saw her tiny little frame flaunting her signature midriff and baggy pant combo on stage I instantly saw that any hype surrounding her is most definitely deserved. Everyone was sucked into her bubble of electronic sounds and fun vocal melodies, as Rose triggered various harmonies and effects. She dons the cutest most sensual dance moves, based mostly around tapping her feet and swaying her hips to the beat. Such a babe. At times she looked a little scared and I was left searching for a bit of crowed interaction, but it’s nothing to moan about.
Oxford Art 5/4/14
King Gizzard And The Wizard Lizard are a band I’m not overly familiar with but think 80’s surf trip and you’ve got King Gizzard. It turned out to be a fun gig and I’m sure most people there were fairly blazed, me being one them. A set full of long jams proved to work for them as the packed venue appreciated. Check them out if you’re into that type of thing.
Last weekend I attended the newest little music festival, Mountain Sounds. Below you will find my review, which is vague to say the least. My recollection of the day is somewhat blurred but one thing I do know is that I had a fucking wicked day. I should probably try to be a bit more professional but where’s the fun in that right?
The Line-up displayed plenty of talented local bands including The Young Lions, Theives, Tropical Zombie, Sealegs, Elliot The Bull and The Lazy’s to name a few. Main headliners to grace the MS stage were Emma Louise, Snakadaktal, Jinja Safari, Ball Park Music and Sticky Fingers.
If you don’t know who Elliot The Bull are you should probably get on that shit. They are one of the stand out local bands the coast has to offer who continuously deliver quality music at an incredibly high level. Not mention they’re a bunch of lovely guys who know how to work hard for what they want. Below is the link to their brand new video clip Colourblind, the first single from their yet to be released Ep ‘Dazed’. Such a catchy tune. I found myself singing it for a good day after I heard it. And how cool is the video! The team at Oh Yeah Wow certainly have wowed with this one.
