Anyone by chance at this concert? I am watching it live streaming, and it is quite fine.
Nope, but golly I’d like to be.
Love GoGo Penguin (hat tip to you), and love the Barbican
Now there’s a lone voice
The architecture, too! Really love that an entire bit of a city can feel so “of a time.”
I lived by the Barbican while I was at Uni in the mid ‘90s, best years
Then at least you could get to it easily ( I am in South London and it is not a good journey).
That’s an enormous part of what I end up enjoying in most big cities. My girlfriend at the time was on Farringdon Rd, so was easy for me, too. Such a good bit of town if it’s not a schlep to get there!
(Dead in the weekend, though maybe that’s changed. Or maybe it fell off a cliff when Anup left )
No it remains dead at the weekends because the City of London has one of the lowest populations of any city ; only 9, 400 odd. However over half a million work there Mon-Fri ( outside of Covid lockdowns that is!).
Watching them in Milan now. Superb!
Saw them in Toronto last year on my cross-continent road trip. Just fantastic.
