Its approaching 2AM and I only got in from London an hour ago after attending a rather wonderful concert at Café Oto, so I am afraid tonight’s post is to be a brief one as I have to be up for work tomorrow. Today began extremely frustrating, several hours were spent trying to fit new parts to my ailing car before my (far more mechanical than I) brother and myself gave up and instead decided to listen to Derek and Clive recordings. The gig this evening was inspiring however, and I wrote a good few notes on it so a review should be forthcoming easily tomorrow. Both sets, John Butcher solo and the duo of John Tilbury and Marcus Schmickler were excellent, with the latter actually verging on something quite memorably so. In the meantime, go click on the little advert down there on the left and take a look at the poster I made using Sarah Hughes’ lovely drawing to advertise a concert coming up soon in Oxford. Its still three weeks away, so if you live anywhere close to Oxford you have plenty of time to plan your visit! The concert takes place in Oxford’s finest independent bookshop as well, so come early and go browsing. A better post tomorrow then, and tonight’s photo is a detail of the washing up I did yesterday.
