Don’t have much time to write right now (off to work soon).
But I just wanted to say, I went to see a play last night. Elaine, Adam, and I got cheap student tickets (sold for £20 day of) to see Stomp at the Vaulderville Theatre. It was awesome. I was amazed at how they made music out of anything they could get there hands on – brooms, dustpans, pipes, plastic bags, etc. And the rhythms they created were really complex. The cast was good at getting the audience involved and there were several funny bits during the play, so I was captivated for the whole show.
Afterwards we had so much energy that we kept stomping around and banging beats on anything we could find. Then we went to Trafalgar Square to meet Ariel, and Adam and I were running aournd like kids, hanging from ledges and leap-frogging over posts. It was fun, the show really gets the adrenaline pumping.
With Ariel in tow, we found a pub and had drinks. I had a pint of Magner’s – an Irish cider which wasn’t quite as good as Strongbow. We sat around and chatted then all caught the tube in different directions.
