Made a trip up to Leicester on the train last Saturday to open the Indie-pop All-dayer that Simon (that runs the Sweeping the Nation site) puts on every year. It didn't bode well initially as I had a really rotten cold for the week leading up to the gig, but luckily the cold had subsided somewhat by the time Saturday came along. I lemsipped myself into a fit state and played some songs, and people seemed to like them. Tim joined me again on harmonium, and also joined me in eating a truly huge burger in the bar downstairs after we played.
There was a lovely atmosphere in the place, and we enjoyed Hilary and the Democrats, who were the band that played after us, and the mountains of crisps that were laid out for the bands in the backstage band room area. It was a day of quality indie-pop and plenty of eating, so a good day indeed.
