Yesterday was an entirely unsuccessful day – or successful when you think about the state of my wallet! Didn’t find anything and realised why one of the shops was completely out of goodies – because they’d refitted it. Cancer Research in Lewisham is now brimming with goodies – but nothing I fancied!
Anyhoo – as you all should know by now I am a thrifty girlie and I carry this into my entertainment! Ha ha – being a ‘rock’ photographer does help get me into gigs. It also helps me secure performers for my exhibition in November – for free 🙂 I’m such a cheap skate. Last night I went to the premier of Alexander Wolfe’s new video. I’ve known Alex for a few years – he’s the brother of the lead singer of Officer Kicks – a band I’ve been photographing for at least 3 years. I’d been meaning to see him perform for years – and for some reason never managed. However, I did get to see his first solo show in a year a couple of months ago. He mesmerised me. He has such a beautiful voice and such poetic lyrics.
The screening of Stuck Under September was in the National Portrait Gallery – followed by a 40 minute set with a string quartet. Most of the set I sat with my eyes closed – allowing the music to wash over me. He truly is one talented lad and he’s such a lovely fellow too 🙂
