Emmy the Great at Queen Elizabeth Hall

Emmy the Great

Emmy the Great live at Queen Elizabeth Hall, this was a nice end to my lovely week of gigs. Emmy was super friendly (accepting random crowd banter and my ever so slightly lame question about latitude festival) and played a super long set (probably had more time due to other support band not turning up due to an illness). Emmy played a slew of album tracks, a cover of “End of the World” and a fest of oldie tracks including Canopies and Drapes, Edward is Dedward and The Hypnotist’s son (though that’s not THAT old). My favourite was probably First Love and WAHA Baby, though Dylan was toe tappingly ace too.

Was definitely the best emmy gig so far, the addition of backing vocals and piano made the music more full and Emmy wasn’t particularly swamped with shows to play in a row like her UK tour. Check this video of them playing “We almost had a baby

I’ve got a horde of videos to upload so check check my youtube or vimeo account for more emmy goodness. Emmy releases a new EP with some of her oldie songs so buy them at the lovely guys at rough trade. She managed to play 3 of the 4 songs on the EP (I have two videos of the three :))

      I wanted to take a video Regina at her gig but the security guards were on strict orders to attack anyone who has their camera out too long (photos don’t need to be held so long so yeah). Besides i was more into gawping and shooting ninja shots ๐Ÿ™‚
