To the Junction last night to see Fred's House, a local band. We came in while the support act were on, and I immediately felt grumpy, as there were no seats free, due to the venue having taken out all the central seating and shut the gallery, which left a two row fringe of balcony seating, all occupied. My over 50 year old frame doesn't cope well with standing up for two hours. However at the break Michael managed to grab us a couple of seats (my hero!) and the evening improved dramatically.

We've seen Fred's House a couple of times in smaller venues, and their sound seems to have morphed from folk-rock to more of a 70's US-influenced sound. They've still got good melodies and harmonies, but there are fewer of the twiddly bits. "No, not Fleetwood Mac", I kept thinking. "Who do they remind me of?" The answer came at the end when for their last encore they launched into a storming version of Somebody to Love. We walked home singing and it's still going round in my head, mingling occasionally with strains from White Rabbit. Ah well, as they say, feed your head.

Aw, J2 is usually reliable for existence of seating.

I know! And I'd just got back from London, made a really quick dinner and rushed over just to see the band, and they'd taken the sodding seats away! I was NOT HAPPY.

Fred's House v fine. Will have to listen out for their next gig to try out new sound. Empathy re the chairs.
