Last week I went with a few friends, including most of the members of scØre, to see 'Hot Chip' play in Birmingham and they were great. I've only recently been introduced to this band and have to admit I'm still getting used to their unique style, but at least half of the tracks on the latest album are great!
One of their best tracks is 'Over and Over' and can be heard, complete with video, on their MySpace site here. [Scroll down to see video, but first PRESS PAUSE on the MP3 that annoyingly auto-plays at the top]
Hot Chip played in a bit of a dive of venue called the Irish Centre and it was really hot, smoky and getting a drink from the bar was as good as impossible; the queue was relentless. I even spied a gorgeous barmaid and that wasn't enough to make me queue, so it must have been bad!!! It was nice to see XTA gear being used though. :]
As a bonus, I found £3 in the ticket machine, so used that to buy the ticket and then the machine spat the money back out again, after issuing me a ticket! Result, free parking and free money.
Well, this morning I'm off for a long weekend break on a narrow boat.
See ya'll next week!

Today's Top-Tip: Don't waste money on paper shredders. To avoid having your identity stolen, simply place a few dog turds in the bin bags along with your old bank statements.
