I left Lily Allen and her accompanying media circus in time to catch a bit of Rodrigo y Gabriela, who had whipped up the crowd into a frenzy. I’ve not seen such an appreciative audience in quite some time. I nipped backstage to grab some quick shots after the performance, always a privilige to meet such amazing musicians.
Amongst all these amazing musicians, and (very annoyingly) at the same time as Rodrigo and Gabriela was Lily Allen, the latest MySpace pop superstar. Loads of kids turned up to watch someone they could relate to, rather than being dragged around watching bands their parents wanted to watch. Not sure I approve of singing while smoking a fag and holding on to an alcopop with such a young crowd.
