Music and Mona

Hmm not doing too well with blogging this month I’m afraid. This week has flown past!

I went to see Grinderman on Wednesday night as part of the Mona Foma festival and they didn’t disappoint. It was only my second time seeing Nick Cave and although completely different to the Bad Seed material it was so great. My only issue is that I picked the wrong side of the stage to stand on and couldn’t see Warren Ellis in all his craziness (he's so good, Warren's Lament is one of those songs that gives me tingles!)!

Last night I ditched friends at the pub to go back and see Olof Arnalds, she was very lovely, so great having someone like that come here. I wish I’d taken the opportunity to see more things as part of the festival because it is so good. The MONA gallery opens this weekend and I can’t wait to go visit (although I might wait a few weeks), apparently there is a Basquiat (exciting for me!).

Have a great weekend!

We went to grinderman too and LOVED it :-) we were up the back on a slightly raised platform so I still had a pretty good view.

I finally managed to get down there to see the Ballet Lb and couldn't get in. Very frustrating. I think I'll also wait a few weeks before I go to the gallery - it will be diferent, that's for sure!
