Florence last Friday

I’m a late convert. I walked into the kitchen not that long ago, put 6 Music on, and was utterly blown away by ‘What Kind of Man’. Leading directly to the purchase of tickets to see Florence and theMachine at Alexandra Palace last week.

It was very good. Iconic venue. Fun bus ride from Finsbury Park. Great burrito, only a small part of which found itself down my front. The Staves as support. Time with daughters. Brilliant sound quality – example a harp that could easily have been an affectation, but which came through loud and clear.

The only downside – as is often the case – my lack of knowledge of her music, and being completely surrounded by those who adore every moment of every song.
