A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to have tickets to see the only UK show on Blackfield's European tour, at The Mean Fiddler in London. That would be exciting enough by itself, but even better, the support band was Pure Reason Revolution, my favourite new band in ages.
Since I was at least as excited about the support band as the main act, I suggested we headed over to the venue a little before doors opened. I think some of the others I was with were humouring me by heading over before doors, but we were soon glad we had, because we found ourselves at the back of an incredibly long queue, snaking back around several blocks heading away from the venue.
With such a long queue ahead of us, I began to worry a little that we might miss some of PRR's set, but in the end we got in in time. The place was absolutely rammed though; we ended up right at the back of the main floor area, although luckily we managed to edge up onto the raised bit in the middle, so we could actually see a bit.
