This afternoon I was just down the road from my flat at Jackdaw in Lower Clapton for a charity gig in aid of Shelter. It was a great event with with the brilliant Sonia Aste on MC duties shaking maracas and generally keeping the energy going throughout the 20 act (!) show. The venue was also pretty cool, a cosy basement with table service and a decent little PA.
I opened proceedings and, as I only had time for one track, did some crowd work before jumping into 1 Shot. Topical given the amount of coffee being drunk in the room. The crowd really went for it and it was nice to relax and enjoy the rest of the show without the pressure of knowing I was performing later.
