with Mikelangelo, The Bluebottes
Toff in Town, Sunday 8th July 2012
This came up a lot quicker than I thought it would and I was glad to have the previous night off or I wouldn't have been able to make it.
Mikelangelo was up first and started earlier than I thought the show would as I have been to gigs at the Toff where I have been the only one there for an hour. Mikelangelo is doing a farewell show before he goes off to Europe to tour at the Regal Ballroom on 20th July, I hope it goes well.
I last saw the Bluebottles supporting the 188.8.131.52's at the Tote and they do remind me of 50 Kaitenz somewhat, there certainly isn't much to compare them to locally.
The Nymphs had new dresses especially for the occasion and it was a double birthday for Kel and her sister so it was a big night. They also did some new material, which was great to hear. As Mikelangelo said, "wholesome is the new sexy" and I am always happy after going to see a Nymphs show. After the show they went over to Choo Choos to party the night away, but I was hungry so I had a late supper and went home. It was good to see a whole lot of people dressing to the theme and cheers to Al and friends for making it.
