My second time seeing them was in Exeter at the Cavern when I was 18, that's three years ago now and I still love them them! Anyway I'm rambling...back to tonight's performance...
On walking in to the venue, (Talking heads), my first thought was how quiet it was considering THE DYKEENIES were playing. It did pick up after the support band, who were actually rather enjoyable by the way, but I still feel like The Dykeenies deserve a packed out venue every time they perform as they are exquisite.
When he sings I get that feeling you get after a couple of drinks ;) That feeling where you feel as though you don't have a care in the world, it's great. I just realised how cheesy that sounded but I don't even care cos they truly are amazing! The atmosphere was great and I even treated myself to a cheeky pear cider. Everyone was dancing and enjoying themselves - though there was a group of typical young drunk teenage girls swooning over the lead singer and turning 'enjoying' into 'annoying' but hey, we were all there once...weren't we?
What I wore
As we left it was heavily raining and so I threw on one of Craig's massive coats over the top of my legging and blouse combination. These boots always remind me of Peter Pan.
Blouse: Next (Black slip worn underneath)
Coat: New Look mens
Boots: Asos (A gift from last Christmas)
