You Danced To A Different iTune Yesterday
One of the many and varied contradictions to be found in my character (I must stress however, that I am not, even in generous description or high doses-of, ‘a character’), is the razor-sharp double-edged blade of my double standards; in an otherwise 24 carat carbon-complexion, it is the one glaring flaw destined to dump this dazzler in the bargain bin.
I am not consistent. I have at points been ‘sistent’; I was persistently annoying up until the age of… well, let’s just say I’m still persistent… but never consistent. I have a feeling that this website may very well be the closest to consistent I’ve ever been. Consistently what I’ll leave to you… Totally unreasonable then that I should find inconsistencies in the world proper fuming: the other day, it was hot. Really hot. Yet today, unrelenting grey. And I am blue. The Sun has seemingly struggled through three rounds with Cirrostratus Fibratus before the raining heavyweight’s finally, and literally, sparked the former golden boy out cold. In fact, though I wore shorts in to Mumford HQ towers this very morn, predicting a warm reception, it is now raining. IT’S RAINING. I am in for a whole world of wet hippo hair pain on the commute home. Cheers.
Hot/cold/hot/cold – I can’t work in these conditions! I barely work as it is! One minute shorts, the next, trousers. Has man ever faced a greater challenge? Don’t think so!
Bloody brilliant. Probably get a cold now. I’ll spend the next week melting down Lockets, intravenously ingesting hit after hit of honied heroin; crushing Tunes to a fine powder before rubbing the blackcurrant grit into my raspberry gums, hurting for sweet sinus relief.
Sigh. I don’t even like Tunes. But I do like tunes. If there’s any tunes cruising for a crushing, it’s iTunes.
Mumford & Sons are playing the iTunes Festival! At London’s Roundhouse! The Roundhouse is bloody lovely! Get yourself to that round house on the 9th July for an amazing night of musickness!!
And what is more – much more – the boys will be joined by the ridiculously lovely and sublimely talented musicians of the Dharohar Project for the show! Twas these gracious souls with which The Sons shared many an Indian stage back in December of last year as part of the cultusical (blended two types of spice then, ‘cultural’ and ‘musical’, feeling that?) exchange, and let’s not be bashful, this can mean only one thing… AMAZING SCENES!
There are 25 pairs of tickets up for grabs gratis HERE with hundreds more to be won every night between now and July 1st on the official Facebook page! A little bird told me they may also be more nesting HERE!
And just cause we’re good like that, Mumford & Sons will be playing a SECOND show with the Dharohar Massive on the 12th of July at St. George’s Hall, Bradford! Tickets for which can be purchased in advance right here!
I feel better already!
