The main venue in Norwich is Norwich UEA LCR with the best gig I've seen there this year so far being Hot Chip who put on a quality show with lots of energy. Norwich's second venue is The Waterfront where I saw Kele a couple of week's ago! With a mixture of his solo album and Bloc Party tracks it was a fun night!
In March I saw Grizzly Bear and Beach House at London's Roundhouse. Two brilliant bands at an amazing venue. Everything was out of this world that night!
I got to see Pavement at Brixton Academy in May 15 years after I first saw them at Norwich UEA. They are one of my favourite bands of the 90's and I loved every minute of it!
On 4th July I finally got to see Jay-Z when he headlined the Wireless Festival in Hyde Park. Talk about being in an empire state of mind! One of the greatest hip hop stars ever!
Last Sunday I was at the Latitude Festival where I saw brilliant performances from Dirty Projectors, Midlake, Jonsi and Vampire Weekend among others. There is always a great vibe at Latitude along with loads of great bands!
