No post yesterday – I was busy dodging drunk students and their beer while listening to BigBang, who played in Ås.
Overall, it was a good concert. Obvious highlights were “Wild Bird” and “Girl in Oslo”, but I also really enjoyed some of the other tunes they played. As always when on a concert with a band I don’t really know that well, I regret not listening to more of their music in advance. My faulty handsfree set is to blame for that.
I won’t make the same mistake with the Mew concert in March. Though I’ve nearly worn out my “Frengers” MP3s, the latest album is mostly unknown to me. That’ll be rectified.
Violence continues in Iraq (BBC). At least it seems leaders on both sides are united in calling for restraint, even Moqtada Sadr. Grounds for optimism?
