Looking back at the June Librarians Wanted it was just such a great night… kickstarting with King of Cats lying down on the floor amongst the audience playing the uke and singing with a voice not far from Daniel Johnston. Max King of Cats has got that great personality in addition to the musical talents!
Then played Lost and Found, which are Matt and Jen from A Fine Day For Sailing - with such incredibly touching melodies and lyrics the audience did choke up. Yes, life really should have an instruction book!
And then it was Pinkie (Alex Sharkey of Fosca and Brighter), performing his first ever solo show, the beauty of it really did make us drift into daydreams of lost loves and melancholy, and hope - it’s difficult to describe the feeling we had when he played, but it was great to be there. We were incredibly humbled to have such a legend playing on the Dogstar stage, and we are hoping he’ll come back one day.
The audience were quite literally blown away by T.O.Y.S’ set. Never have the bass and the drums been played to the max at an LW before.. but the louder, the better, a truly rockin’ performance - and it’s safe to say these guys will be big. Or at least they should be, so do buy their EP that’s out now on Dufflecoat Records. Could this be the new Joy Division?
And the evening ended with the ever-charming This Many Boyfriends, who’s able to frown when they play? Just couldn’t stop smiling - and the songs are great too. We’ve loved them for quite a while now, having seen them first at a HDIF Presents. The band has got a few new members, but are still great!
We munched cupcakes, danced and laughed, and are ready for the next LW instalment on 16 July! (http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=216073641751174) - more details to be listed in the next blog.
