Oxford gig

The Oxford gig last night was just incredible! It was organised by the student indie music society, so there were many people there who hadn't seen the band before. I think they made a lot of new fans, judging by the enthusiastic audience response.

I was right at the front with about half a dozen of my friends - all singing along, dancing, and grinning like absolute loons. It was my second time seeing the band, after going down to London for the album launch, and I was proudly wearing my 'Too schooled for cool' T-shirt (until I got far too hot from dancing). But it was the first time for most of the others. We had a fantastic time! My ears are still ringing slightly, my head hurts, and my throat is hoarse from singing and cheering, but it was so worth it...

I was particularly happy to hear 'Our daughters will never be free', as I don't think that was played at the album gig. It's a favourite among my feminist friends, and it was epic live - Julia standing up to play it, and giving it her all.

I have slowly been converting even more people on my friends list. Three of these new fans came along to the gig last night, and another has purchased T-shirts from the website. I've also been pimping the band out on an indie music LJ comm, and had a lot of positive feedback. Fear not, band, if you're lurking - I haven't uploaded the album, just some favourite songs!

If there's anyone here who hasn't seen them play, I suggest you move heaven and earth to do so. The album just doesn't capture how powerful and energetic (and loud) they are live! And, if you'll forgive a brief diversion into shallowness, they're all really hot too :)
