....Shrove Tuesday had a good look to it. Alicia and I dashed home and got straight to work on making ourselves several pancakes. Alicia's plum filling the undoubted success whilst I took the honours in the flipping contest. (Alicia didn't even try, so I won by default!)
We then hopped back on our bikes to the Roundhouse where Fleet Foxes were performing their final gig of a three day residency. The band have only one critically acclaimed album, but it was enough to see them through over an hour on stage. Easily. In short, they were incredible - Robin Pecknold stealing the show with an unbelievable vocal throughout. Two thirds of the way through he even played acoustically without a mic and was left alone on stage by the rest of his band to serenade a stunned silent audience. His band were not short on talent either, bringing impeccable harmonies and an almost vulnerable humility to the masses.
We had a great night and cycling home agreed that it was a superb gig - one that far outweighed my own expectation. To celebrate we had a midnight beer and pancake and rolled in to bed.
