Little Nicky Cave

Posted on | October 19, 2009 | Comments Off on Little Nicky Cave

I had the very good fortune to get to see Nick Cave last week.  It was billed as ‘an evening of readings, music and conversation with Nick Cave’.

And that’s what we got.

Cave has a new book out – The Death Of Bunny Munroe and the evening opened with him doing a reading.  Then to some music (with Martyn Casey and Warren Ellis from The Bad Seeds/Grinderman).  And quite splendid music it was too.  Take a ganders at the video below.  Seems some bloke spent most of the night videoing the thing.  I find this very slightly odd but it does mean that I get to have another look/listen.

Here’s Cave and the boys with Lime Tree Arbour:

As it turns out, there was a conspicuous (and odd) lack of annoying people in the audience too.  There were three idiot-women in the balcony who danced, out of time, with pretty much everything but they were distant and unobtrusive.  The audience was quiet and respectful which was lucky as the music and atmosphere was soft and understated.

All told, an excellent evening.

Apart from the fact that the chip shop was closed by the time we left the pub later.  Can’t have everything I suppose.

I mostly sit around all day and drink tea. Occasionally, I write stuff and send it to strangers so they can humiliate me and deride my efforts. Other than the self-harm to dull the shame of failure, it's not a bad life. Like I say, there's tea.
