Live music! Yeah! Following on from our trip to relive youth with James Heather and I headed for another old band, Placebo playing at the Eventum Apollo in Hammersmith. They were supported by The Mirror Trap, a band I’ve become a huge fan of since looking them up for this tour. They didn’t disappoint. Hopefully they’ll take themselves off on their own tour soon—go see them, they really can rock.
I wasn’t entirely certain about Placebo before going to the gig. I’ve always been a fan, but not hugely so. I needn’t have worried, they were quite awesome, blowing the crowd away with the first few songs. And Loud Like Love is constantly getting stuck in my head.
Now the question is can we get more gigs in before Shed Seven/Inspiral Carpets in December?
