BUG

Went to BUG, the music video thing that Adam Buxton (of Adam and Joe) puts on at the BFI.
This video is quite possibly one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.

Drummer is wearing an Obits shirt too. Whose lead singer Rick Froberg did that right funny picture up there in my blog title.

OFFSET FESTIVAL

Male Bonding induced actual male (and female) bonding.
Special mention as well for these two, who staged over an hour of indecipherable noise and reverb drenched screaming around the back of the dance tent. They actually turned out to be a preferable alternative to the horror story that was the Slits headlining the main stage. 
Mike was then accosted by strange smiling bearded men on the tube.
An alleged stabbing in London Fields meant police lines everywhere on the way home. Seemed a bit weird that a screening of 70s gang warfare classic 'The Warriors' still went ahead in the park the next day. 
Warriors...

DIPLO / NOTTING HILL

Went to Diplo's show at Notting Hill carnival (he's cool apparently... but I can't really tell with DJs). It was pretty mental and way more fun than I thought it could be. So I guess that's why he's cool.
