1984, Royal Opera House

Or, more exactly:

a) the auditorium of the ROH just before curtain up:

b) the Champagne Bar an hour or so before the opera started:

c) the Champagne Bar during the interval, once people had realised that getting pissed would be the only thing that would make this show palatable. (Director Robert Lepage shows the occasional glimpse of what he can do with the staging, but not enough to get over the atrocious music and lyrics.)

I don't think that was part of the original picture...

Saul Williams live at the Scala, King's Cross. I've liked his stuff since his appearance in the movie Slam several years ago, but I hadn't realised he'd accumulated such a following. A packed audience yelling along to poetry: you don't get that every day. And he gets extra bonus points for
being one of the few performers in living memory who can do the two-turntables-and-a-microphone thing and not have all his words obscured by a bass-heavy mush.

The second and third pictures are fucked up, but I like the look of them.

"We're gonna do a lotta new songs, and it may get a little loud," said Robert Fisher at the start. And he was right, too: any illusions I had about the WGC being a quiet introverted band were pretty much shattered from the word go. Terrific stuff, and now I'm gagging to hear the new album. Excellent support from William Elliott Whitmore and Christopher Rees as well - The Belated Birthday Girl went nuts and bought CDs by all three acts on the way out of the gig.

One of the fingers of my Kit Kat at lunchtime was made entirely of chocolate.

The other three were okay, though.
