Bank holiday choices

March 22, 2005

Easter bank holiday weekend has thrown up a few dilemmas in terms of gigging over-subscription.

Initially Circus at the Elbow Room with Eastern Lane, The Cherubs, Vincent Vincent & the Villains, Crash Convention and Twisted Charm on Thursday night had seemed an unbeatable line-up. That was until I heard of the Be Your Own Pet, Test-Icicles and Semi-Finalists gig for The Birthday Club at Infinity. My Fan-boy Test-icicles crush and Jemina Abegg obsession (which has been in effect for the month and a half I have known BYOP exist) far outweigh my desire to see VVVs, who are the only band on the other bill I have yet to see. Ultimately I’m a sucker for pretty Americans and Jemina (BYOP) and Sam (TI) truly have me on a leash, a damn damn leash (ha).

Friday is even more difficult with a choice having to be made between The Pipettes & Ciccone (amongst others) at The Windmill in Brixton, and The Long Blondes & The Homewreckers Club at The Pleasure Unit (ChloeRock). I’m hoping there’s a possibility of gig-hopping in this case, but I worry a choice will have to be made between respective headliners The Long Blondes and The Pipettes, which just isn’t cricket.

So, any suggestions?
