I have been looking forward to this a long time: Seeing Lucy Rose at the O2 in Shepherd’s Bush. Supported by Sam Brookes and Peter and Kerry, Lucy yesterday created an intimate atmosphere that made sure everyone felt like she’s been their best friend since high school. It was the closest gig to perfect I’ve seen in a long time, but the fact that her music is exceptional did help, too. At the end, she asked all birthday kids to come on stage while everyone was singing. What present could ever top that?! So if you haven’t heard of her yet, shame on you, but make sure to click through her Youtube. That’s how I discovered Lucy a while ago, attempting to overcome a nasty writer’s block. Needless to say that it worked.
