Sam Sparro

Sam Sparro is the bloke who sings Black And Gold. This was yet another gig at Koko for the iTunes Festival. It a great venue but the lighting is so difficult - lots of backlighting and shadows. Managed to get a few okay shots though...

Florence And The Machine

Ah there's nothing like a band who determinedly sticks to being unsigned, presumably with the expectation that the longer they hold out for the better the deal they'll get.

Or will they just disappear like 98% of all the other bands but without taking advantage of their slight fame.

I quite like this band though... and here they were a popular support act for the Ting Tings at Koko.

Well done and all that.

Pharrell Williams obviously decided I was worth rapping to. Not quite sure what he was saying - too busy making sure I didn't fuck this short opportunity up. Which I proudly claim I did not...
