Jake Bugg, O2 Shepherds Bush 27 February 2013

Back to Shepherds Bush we go.  I’ve said it before, I’m not a fan of going there because it’s so out of the way (for everyone it seems), but this time we had seats, and after getting there about half an hour after doors opened we had one of the best spots in the house.  We caught all of Valerie June‘s set which was impressive, she has a ridiculously brilliant voice on her.  Nice to see a different kind of support act than the usual dime a dozen indie bands.  The crowd in the seats were pretty well behaved, apart from a couple behind us who were I guess on a date, trying to impress each other by laughing overly loudly and chatting incessantly.  An older guy in front of them (there with his daughter) turned around at one stage and gave them a talking to, which seemed to shut them right up!  Other than that, decent crowd, really varied.  We had two old guys (60+) sitting in front of us, one with pocket-sized binoculars which was quite cute.  Jake Bugg was better than I expected.  To be honest I don’t really know what I expected.  Not a single bum note, and his guitar playing was effortless.  He’s clearly not one for smiling – don’t think he cracked a smile throughout the whole set.  When you’re that talented though I guess smiling and crowd interaction is optional… I’d see him again in a second, but I’m not sure I would be willing to pay the ticket price that he can request nowadays.  That’s what you get for having a number one album I guess.

Back to using my Canon 1000D 75-300mm lens, no more point-and-shoots for a while me thinks!  Pictures below, enjoy.
