Guess where I was Last night..

So wait 'til I TELL ya where I was last night!....At Vicar St,Dublin, at the Nick Cave gig! Oh yeah it was good. He even played Red Right Hand for me after I yelled it at him a couple of times! He intermittently read excerpts from his book ' The Death of Bunny Munro'

which IS off the wall & quite vulgar but he delivers the words in such an entrancing way that one forgets their guttergibeness(don't know if that's a word or not but sounds good!). He worked up an easy rapport with the audience & invited ANY questions saying from time to time ''I'll do ANYthing-anything at all'' & some requests DID ensue. Frida Kahlo image is featured behind him on the running video as he recites with reference to her a particularly comical scene from his book-so funny!

An intimate concert refreshing to the jampacked larger venue concerts. Great night :)

Oh I'm soooooooooooooo jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE Nick Cave and yet I've never seen him play live... I met him once though, back in the late 80's in The Conran Shop with Henry Rollins (HE was with HR not me) had a chat about vases and interior design rather surreally and It just didn't seem right to break the spell by getting all gushy and telling him I loved his music. He seemed a really nice guy and I went off with a rosey glow :o)

I'm still jealous!!!!!!!!!!!
