- Solo show in Barcelona, May 10th 2014 -
A couple of months ago, I was contacted by the writers Kiko Amat and Miqui Otero with an offer to play some songs at their Primera Persona festival in Barcelona. As the name suggests, Primera Persona, is concerned with writers of novels, poems, and songs, who write in the first person. I guess I technically qualify, so after a little to-ing and fro-ing I said “yes, please”.
It’s this coming Saturday, the 10th of May, and it’s the first solo show I have ever done. I’m a little excited and a little terrified. Thankfully, it won’t be a strictly one-man show as Kiki and Miqui have teamed me up with a terrific band from Mallorca called Beach Beach.
I head out to Barcelona on Thursday for a couple of rehearsals before the show at the weekend. Hopefully we will play around 15 songs, some Teenage Fanclub and some Lightships.
Also appearing at this year’s Primera Persona are Calvin Johnson, Tracey Thorn, Ian Svenonius, Bob Stanley, Irvine Welsh, Green Gartside, and many more.
I’m a lucky so and so…
A while ago, I penned a fairly angry response to something circulating on the internet – the 21 Habits of Happy People. It pissed me off beyond belief, that there was an inference that if you weren’t Happy, you simply weren’t doing the right things.
I’ve had depression for as long as I can…
Fresh off their recent tour of Australia as part of the Groovin’ The Moo festival the guys from Frightened Rabbit are heading back home for a well deserved month off after playing a whole heap of shows and releasing a pretty bloody amazing record in the shape of Pedestrian Verse.
