last week – marielyst and odense plus moullettes @ loppen

Last week I was in Marielyst on the Thursday night at the newly renovated and much larger Café Daisy.  They came with cake for me in the break, having found out that it was my birthday!  Very fun night with very fun people…will be back there in the summer (outside if the weather’s good) both solo and with Strong Ale.

On Friday I did the early set at The Old Irish Pub in Odense followed by 2 sets with Strong Ale.  Quite a lot of people I know there and a fab evening with a very drunk Leprechaun and Miss Monkey.  Saturday night I did the late set after the Strong Ale sets.  Fabulous evening again once the crowd got into gear.

On Sunday The Leprechaun and I went to Copenhagen, and, after eating at Pairøen (Copenhagen Street Food) we watched Moulettes play at Loppen in Christiania.  Amazing musicians and terrific use of cello and harmony vocals, and very inventive guitar playing and fantastic drumming, combined with Loppen’s brilliant sound…but still somewhat disappointing.  The interaction with the audience was embarrassingly ill-thought out and awkward, and the band really looked like they didn’t want to be there.  Still, we had a great night – rounded off nicely with drinks at Downtown Copenhagen where the greatest bar staff looked after us and a bunch of English visitors.  Happy days.
