Having fun with The Decemberists!

The Decemberists having fun at Hammersmith Apollo
I was in London on Wednesday and Thursday this week that included attending The Decemberists gig at Hammersmith Apollo. On Wednesday afternoon I visited Tate Modern which was a sea of sunflower seeds.

Blind Pilot supported on Wednesday night with a set that brought dreamy Americana that made us wish we were down on the ranch.

The Decemberists made it a fun night for everyone with their Indie Folk putting smiles on all our faces. For two hours Colin Meloy and his band entertained us with lots of highlights from their new album The King Is Dead.

It was wonderful watching a band playing traditional folk instruments. During the encore the band got us all to scream like we were being eaten by a whale for The Mariner's Revenge Song. Overall I would say this was a very enjoyable evening and I recommend that you check out The Decemberists if you have not already discovered them.

On Thursday I visited the Natural History, Science and Victoria & Albert Museums as well as Tate Britain before making the journey home to Norwich.
