HDIF DJing 20/8/11


21 août 2011, 23h08m

On Friday, I travelled down to London to see my friend Amy. We had a great time wandering around (to me) exotic and sumptuous Leyton. The cake shops! Mmmm... Those little Portuguese thingies, with the pastry and the custardniess are deadly.

Then last night I DJed again at HDIF (How Does It Feel To Be Loved?), a wonderful indiepop clubnight run by Mr. Ian Watson. I'd originally been cheeky and asked if I could get Amy and I in on the guestlist. Even better than that, Ian said, how about DJing since the scheduled bloke couldn't make it? Of course I said yes.

So, I DJed and then I danced around with a load of mates who seemed to have gathered from everywhere. It was a lovely night, full of new and old faces. Click the pic above to see a gallery of them!

Today, Amy, Sean and I had a slap-up Sunday dinner at The Lexington on Pentonville Road before getting yet more cakes at St. Pancras. I would say I've eaten my own weight in cakes this weekend but seeing as they'll be increasing my weight, I think that's some kind of maths thing I don't understand? A convergent series?

London was beautiful and ugly, rich and poor, tasty and nauseating. It always inspires me and takes me out of my everyday sense of self. I hope I can hold on to some of that feeling back in Derby.

    A great set. Quite a few of my favourites I can see there :D Sounds like a great night. You should come down to Wales and have a night out and do a DJ set down here sometime if possible.
