Probably - I bet you didn't get a $55 parking ticket.

It didn't help that the Grindstress kept amusingly banging on about the lead singer definitely being "the bloke off The Office" at regular intervals.

Followed by the "I said you shouldn't have parked there" lecture.

Garvey does strongly resemble David Brent from a distance

they were fucking brilliant when I saw them at the Sheffield Arena

Instant lifelong fan knowing FA when I went there

I had the added bonus of seeing Geoff Hoon drying his hands in the bogs on the way out

They didn't seem to play that much off the new album, which was surprisingly not for sale at the gig either, especially as The Seldom Seen Kid was available.

I know The Kaiser Chiefs cancelled/delayed their gigs earlier this month because of distribution problems with their new album. Something similar?

I suppose it's possible Elbow don't have that much of a US following too. The US tour seems to comprise of nine appearances, which include some festivals where they may be bit players.

The Paradise Club in Boston is a small venue close to the campus of Boston College and probably only holds about five hundred people tops.

Ricky's (ahem) voice seemed pitch perfect to my ears and the band were tight.

They finished up with a stirring version of this:-



All a bit ace.

Played Terminal 5 down here which is gash. Even managed to ruin a Doves gig. The room's nearly as high as it is wide. Works wonders for the sound. Hence my none appearance at many gigs by bands I love when they hit NY. Please God Weller never plays there, it will be too much. Paradise Club I've heard good things of. Mates band The Chevin will, I think, be touring with KCs soon.

The Paradise Club isn't a bad venue and Elbow can at least play, unlike a few others I've seen there.

I'm currently trying to weasel out of my parking ticket on a technicality - there wasn't a suitable sign on the telephone pole next to where I parked.

Doubt it'll work, but I'll try anyway.

In conclusion: Elbow good, parking tickets arse.

I sent a weasely letter (including phrases such as "pretty please" and "I'm not from around here") and they've only gone and let me off.

Double fucking ace and that!

As long as you don't overtax yourself with a review this time.

Yes. Why use two words when one will do, eh?

The Grindstress is not the greatest gig partner. She's usually asking how long is left until we can leave after about the third song.

She also wants me to get tickets for Lady Gaga.

Whilst it might be an interesting spectacle to watch, I'm only going to that disaster if I manage to get some comps from Joe the Radio.

Yeah i love going with MrsD as well but these days she only wants to go to the sit down so the West Yorkshire Basketball Team dont congregate in front of us gigs. Got Midlake at the Halifax Minster coming up in the Summer. We both went to the Elbow gig at the Academy a few year back but i fucked up the timing and missed the first hour. She's never forgiven me.
