Hurray for the Riff Raff

Currently playing The Navigator on rotation. Hard to imagine there'll be many better albums this year. Hope she gets on the main stage. Pa'lante as a set finisher will get me weeping. Really life-affirming music. 

Suddenly very impressed and will be looking to buy the navigator with pa'lante.  Did not even realise they were at green man until saw Krasny's post suggesting an appearance at babbling tongues.  Both would be a must see.

My list of 'must sees' is growing by the day and is already worryingly large! These are the latest addition To that list. Perfect for a late afternoon slot on the Mountain Stage. 

Without going off topic, I am getting seriously worried about who i will have to miss due to clashes.  Gonna be like a kid in a sweet shop when I get to glanusk and see the 2017 progr in full.  

Back to hurray for the riff raff, I suspect they will be either in the far out or walled garden stages.  They would be equally good On either and personally would prefer them on a sunny evening in the walled garden.  Just remembering how good Whitney were there last year. 

Walled Garden would be perfect but personally I'd guess they'll be Mountain Stage.

Wherever they are, I'll be there.

Loving The Navigator too. I hope we  get to hear plaenty of it as opposed to a 'greatest hits' festival set.

 

ta for flagging that up wakestock - I'll watch that when the rest of the family are ensconced with the dreaded Voice this evening.

Isn't it just? Should make for a great festival set. I thought the bass player looked familiar and brief search confirms it's Caitlin Gray who used to play in Jeffrey Lewis' band, so she has played Green Man before. 

had to google that

as so often the case I had no idea what you were talking about

you have so many cultural reference points

Just had an eMail and text from the Colston Hall.  The hftrr gig scheduled for the 23rd October at the Bristol Trinity has been rescheduled for the 16th.  Bit of a bummer for me, I will be away on the 16th and was so looking forward to seeing them again.

I wonder if that might be because they've been booked to appear on Later that week? The artists need to be there on the Monday to soundcheck ahead of recording the programme on Tuesday. Seems to be a regular occurrence for me. The Songhoy Blues show I went to last night was originally meant to be on Saturday, which would have been preferable, but got bumped back a day due to their appearance on that Later special at the Albert Hall on Saturday. Aldous Harding's show at Thekla earlier this year got pushed back to November (they also switched it to a larger less charming venue unfortunately), and it also happened with a Sharon Van Etten gig a couple of years back. Can't really begrudge the bands taking the opportunity though, as it gives them such valuable exposure. 

Ah well, win some lose some.  The Aldous Huxley (sorry Harding) getting bumped means I get to see her later in the year but will not now be seeing HFTRR.  at least I saw them at green man and lets hope they come back again soon.
