Unfortunately my time in Cardiff for this academic year is up! Now I’m back at work I have no time to do anything it seems! My last week there was so great though. One of the nights I got to see Roo Panes supported by Jamie Willetts.
I’d never been to The Moon Club in Cardiff so didn’t really know what to expect and had a shock when I saw how tiny it was! It’s a really nice little venue and was a great gig.
Jamie was really talented – and seemed a really nice guy! He had everybody enjoying the music and got us all clapping along to one of his own songs. He also did some really nice covers, one of my favourites from Bon Iver.
Roo was exactly how I expected, the songs lived up to his youtube videos – probably because they are all acoustic anyway. Again, he captivated the audience, and you could see some people singing along quietly to every word. He even managed to sing through a false fire alarm – that takes concentration!
Overall it was a rather lovely night. I must plan more gigs for when I go back. I’ve seen Dry The River are coming to Cardiff – I was at the front row for them at Y Not Festival last year and they were wonderful, I’d love to see them again.
