PJ Harvey and a long weekend
On Thursday I went to see PJ Harvey at Brixton Academy and she was FANTASTIC! An excellent set with 2 encores and songs ranging from very old to very new. It annoys me when people play their entire new album and nothing more; Polly however played songs I had nearly forgotten about!! LOVE that lady, she is back in September at Hammersmith Apollo I recommend that people go!
As I took Thursday off work to go to the gig I felt the need to take Friday off also to ensure I could drink and stay up late and have fun without worrying about my responsibilities whilst at P.J. However my 4-day weekend has not consisted of much, I went up to Canary Wharf and round Oxford Street but that’s about it.
On Sunday I decided I needed to spend some money and so bought these fantastic books:
Brick Lane By Monica Ali which I have been dying to read for ages.
The Coma by Alex Garland. This is the guy who wrote The Beach and the screenplay to 28 Days Later, also The Tesseract which is less well known but also fantastic.
Brooklyn is a guidebook as next time I go to NY I want to explore there. Hopefully this should be soon as my friend recently moved to Manhattan (bitch!).
I also bought about 10 others as I got a little carried away. I love Borders on Oxford Street it is huge and I could spend a whole day just browsing the books.
I recommend: “Life in the Triangle”, Ritzy Cinema Coldharbour Lane, Brixton, SW2 1JG. July 10th – July 31st.
” ‘Life in the Triangle’ is a fresh and original collection of photographs taken by young residents of three estates in Brixton collectively known as the Moorlands Triangle…..’ ”
The end, amen
