After having a lovely tweet up and partying hard with The Subways the night before we were ready to tackle our first day in London. Well, after a proper English Breakfast of course! 😀 We found a lovely little Italian Cafe near Russell Square with a great selection and ordered a full English! So good.
After about 8 hours of marching through the wonderful and stunning city we took a pit stop at our hotel. To have a bit of a feet up time before we left for Camden Town. We wanted to see The Dodge Brothers playing at The Blues Kitchen, which was free if you hit the venue before 9 p.m.
We got ourselves a pint and settled in while the band got everything ready for their gig. At some point I was too excited to just sit there and so I worked myself to the stage to say “Hello” to Aly, a member of The Dodge Brothers, which I tweet with. It was epic and so much fun to see each other face to face. Lovely chap! The gig itself was my first ever Rockabilly gig and I really loved it! Was great fun! Here is a vid of my fave Dodge Brothers song played at KoKo:
After the gig me and the Mister had a quick talk with Aly again and took this brilliant pic. Me and Aly have a great taste in glasses, dont we?! 😉
We left Camden after the gig, a bit boozed up and landed at the hotel around 1 a.m.
That was a pretty cool but also quite exhausting day rocking around London, seeing all these sights I always wanted to see in real life and ended up in beautiful Camden Town!
Stay tuned to read about a very lovely Tea Party tweet up in my next blog post coming soon! 🙂
