    Return to the Kingdom of the Blind from Dave Cross Last Saturday was the London Perl Workshop. As always, it was a great day with a fabulous selection of talks. As always, I’m desperately waiting for the videos to appear so that I can see the talks that I was forced to miss because of clashes. I spoke a couple of times. In the morning I ran a two-hour training course entitled “Perl in the Internet of Things”. The slides are up on Slideshare. And, towards the end of the day I gave a lightning talk called “Return to the... read more

  • Chvrches – Brixton Academy
    Why this gig? It’s the third time I’ve seen Chvrches this year. They’re addictive. Support Well, wasn’t this a disappointment. Support was a woman called Lizzo. She sings bad dance music to a backing provided by a DJ. Oh, and another friend of hers wanders around the stage taking photos. One of the worst support acts I’ve seen. Headline Chvrches are still great. Everything I’ve said about them before is still true. They say that this is one of the last shows on the tour promoting their first album. So the next time I see them there will hopefully be... read more

  • Upcoming Training
    I have a few training courses coming up in the next few weeks which I thought you might be interested in. Firstly, the London Perl Workshop is on 8th November.

  • The Pop Group – Islington Assembly Hall
    Why this gig? Because the Pop Group are one of that group of post-punk bands whose music was really important to me and I leapt at the chance to finally see them live. Support Two rather interesting choices for support. Neither of them sounded anything like the Pop Group. Have to say that the promoters were a bit crap at letting people know who they were. It’s been a bit of a struggle to track down the information. First up was Rainforth. A solo woman playing electric keyboards and singing. I wouldn’t have been surprised to find that she was... read more

  • Annie Eve – Borderline
    (Can’t find any video of the show, so here’s an official video from a few months ago) Why this gig? Oh, you know the score by now. I’ve seen Annie Eve so many times. I did consider not going to this show because a) it’s only a couple of months since I last saw Annie and b) I really don’t like the Borderline very much. But , in the end, I just couldn’t resist it. Support I’d never heard of Jake Morley before. He was very good. Folky singer-songwriter with a nice line in clever guitar techniques. Well worth checking... read more
