Now the assignments are in, time for Band of Horses!

After my stress over recent assignments, finally they are submitted! Its always a bit stressful for everyone on the course when we have 4 different assignments in over the space of 2 weeks but we did it! Some of the weight lifted before starting the next ones.

Also one step further on our event, plans with the venue are looking positive. Hopefully we will have the venue confirmed and booked by next week…yay! Other Uni related goings on are my dissertation, due to the other assignments I feel I have neglected it slightly over the last couple of weeks but getting back on track with it from now, which involves me writing the first draft of my questionnaire. I have found that my Psychology and Sociology A-levels have come in so useful for my dissertation, as well as a couple of other assignments on the course. I never thought they would, but they really have giving me a good background knowledge on topics like motivation and understanding of research methods. Thank you A-levels!   

Its been a while but I managed to get to a gig this week. I went to see Band of Horses at the Hammersmith Apollo. I have unintentionally become a bit of a fan girl as I've seen them quite a few times now, but they are defiantly worth it and if you get the opportunity I would recommend. The support act was a British band called Gold Heart Assembly, quite a similar sound to Band of Horses so I was equally impressed with them. The only let down was it was on a Tuesday night, so energy levels were lagging by the evening. It was the last night of their UK tour so the energy was up and the crowd singing away. The band even threw in a special surprise for the start of the encore, if your not familiar with the Hammersmith Apollo there is two levels, the top level has seating with a balcony overlooking the ground floor and stage. Two of the band appeared on the second tier and played acoustic versions of a couple of their songs. It was an amazing atmosphere and interesting way to use the venue, playing their music acoustically overlooking the majority of the audience, something I've not seen before. J
