Laura Marling

Despite having now seen The Herd and Nightwish twice each now, I'm not much of a gig-goer. But with another gig coming up in August, I feel as if I am.

Whilst checking details for The Herd on Friday, I checked Laura Marling's website on a whim, wondering if she'd ever tour here. What timing: she's coming out for Splendour In The Grass and playing in Sydney and Melbourne before hopping straight back to the UK for more gigs.

I take it the Corner is a larger venue than the Northcote Social Club? In any case, the gig has been moved to the Corner Hotel, and I snapped up a ticket. Good thing, too: on RRR this morning, Fee said the show was already sold out... Now just to learn from Friday and a) turn up later, and b) drive there, as it's on a Nightrider-less Wednesday.
