The Black Seeds rock London

I wasn't going to post blog about going to see a band - it doesn't really go with the travel theme, but i felt the performance warranted a mention. Don't worry, I will keep it short and sweet.

Friday night we went to see The Black Seeds (NZ dub band for those not in the know). They were frikken awesome! We had such a good night. Several elements contributed to the overall awesomeness:
- They played so well! Better than I expected. Nothing like these bands you hear on the radio that are completely manufactured, so when they get on stage they absolutely suck. These guys had real talent! They sounded even better than their digital recordings.
- The venue (Shepards Bush Empire) was really impressive. I don't know the history of it, but seems to be quite old, and really authentic. Maybe its just built to look that way? Either was, it pulls it off. The Empire has three tier's - unfortunately we were up top - but got in early so had a perfect, uninterrupted view.
- The atmosphere was awesome. So many kiwi's packed in to an amazing venue, all having an awesome time listening to some good kiwi tunes. There were plenty of "Kia Ora's" and "Chur Bros". Felt just like home.

From now until Christmas we are really full on! Three overseas trips, visitors, two gigs and moving into our new flat... Its all on! So I'll be sure to keep you all up to date.
