It took us a little while to find the pub in question, probably because we were looking for more of a 'venue' but no, it was just any ordinary pub and it was thrilling to be able to wander so close to the stage. The support acts were of varying quality, the only one which stands out was 'My Sad Captains', I still need to follow them up because they were truly awesome. Slow, borderline psychedelic at times guitar sounds rang out and the entire pub seemed captivated, they had a large audience who had clearly come just to see them so plenty of their fans were in singing along.
The band after them I seem to remember being pretty bad but I'm digressing now. So Allo Darlin' finally came on stage around 20 past 10 and their set was spectacular, The Polaroid Song was particularly memorable but by far the best performance of the night was My Heart is a Drummer. Elizabeth Morris thrashed her ukulele joyfully throughout the performances and although the audience was a little bit dead the atmosphere was still great, plenty of people knew the words. We were also treated to a new song entitled 'Europe' that upon further research is the title track of their next album. The band was short and sweet, I personally felt that Dreaming was sorely missed but that's just because it happens to be my favourite song of theirs'.
After the show ended I chatted to Elizabeth, grabbed a copy of their album, and their setlist and got them both signed. I can't do her justice with words really, she is a charming and friendly woman, very down to earth and a pleasure to talk to. The audience wasn't particularly energetic, they didn't play my favourite song and their set was a little short... But the show they played was beautiful and like previously stated: almost perfect. Great show, can't wait to see them again once they're back in the UK with a new album.
