Nick Hornby and Marah

Went to a gig last night.

The author Nick Hornby (him of Fever Pitch, About a Boy, High Fidelity and other books that'll probably become films at some point) really really likes Marah, US rock bluesie band. (Apparently so does Stephen King, Bruce Springsteen, and Phil Jupitus definitly does as he was there last night and said so). He wrote a load of essays about his relationship with music and live bands through his life. Last night with Dan and his wife Ester we saw him read these essays with Marah as a musical backdrop. Then Marah played their own set.

It was really really good. They are really good live. If you get a chance to see them, then do yourself a favour.

Here a much better review of the show.

oh arse, thanks anonymous.

I'm sure there was a reason I typed in the url and didn't copy and paste it.

Fixed it now
