We took a cab down from home, stuffed wheelchair in, cabbie very helpful. and dropped us off fairly close. Not far to go, and it was dry when we got dropped off. And it stayed dry while John trundled me to the shop... Easy access, so great! First person we saw was Emily, and she recognised/remembered us from Port Eliot Festival. She greeted us, and then went off to put her lippy on. Smile!
Becky had some nice new Doc Marten's.
Here's Emily and Becky working together over the the keyboard....
Lucy talking with someone.
Emily tuning up...
I sat at the front of the venue, we talked with an ardent fan from the Wirral, who I hope gets to see this post. It was wonderful to be so close to the band in such a small and intimate place. Thank you to Dr Marten's Liverpool for such a great and accessible place to see such a great band!
Here's one of my favourite songs, Circles.
Here's another of my favourite tracks - ShutEye. This and the track it segued into closed the gig.
This was the last songs of the evening. As we left Emily told Becky that we'd been at Port Eliot to see them. So we left on a high, and found that it was only mizzling outside. Parked wheelchair under a sheltered part of L1 so I could have a ciggie (shameface) and when the rain more or less stopped John yomped the wheelchair over to the road where we were lucky enough to get a cab immediately! And so ended a wonderful eveining!
I videoed the whole wonderful gig, you can see it here. Though in my usual disorganised manner I seem to have put everything up twice! Ah well, it's good to listen to plenty of Stealing Sheep!
