Haven’t updated much for a while, but then – haven’t done much for a while.
Just the 1 gig – Wye Oak… good, as always. Although – just off the plane, it seems – and rather sick. So – slightly shortened set, and obvious a “practice run” of new material, in a small venue, before their proper tour in June/July. But I’m glad I went. And the support act – Sylvan Esso… very good. Terrible sound in this clip, but… a name I’ll definitely be watching out for. Album out in about a month, hopefully.
The Adventurer – think I managed to get out in the countryside once in the last 6 weeks or so? Got myself a new jacket though, for summer…. hoping on wearing that in over the next few weekends.
Bad day of work yesterday – so went online, did some “retail therapy”, as I believe the crazies call it. Got myself a sweet sweet flight – Heathrow->Auckland. Return, sadly – but, it’ll do for now. So yeah, landing in Auckland on Sunday 31st May. Flying out again on 29th June. In between those dates, a flight to Rarotonga on the 7th. No return flight for that yet, but will be there at least 1 week. Probably not much more, as I think I might also be buying a bike. So – hopefully that pans out, and I’ll be looking for excuses to travel far and wide around the countryside – and visiting people is a good excuse like that. Although this will be a shorter visit overall, due to the Raro thing in the middle… who knows, hopefully I’ll even make it to Wellington this time?
Oh, and yeah – the subject. Spring is here, maybe? I think there was a sunny day last week. And it’s not dark when I leave the office anymore. And the temperature is in double digits… nearly throughout the day. So – as soon as the sun does make an appearance, I’ll be off on a plane to winter.
