The ever brilliant Eden Sessions have been announced, featuring many of this years biggest acts. The sessions have been moved forward from throughout August to now throughout July, which probably won’t make much difference to most people.

Monday July 2nd – James Morrison
Tuesday July 10th – Rufus Wainwright
Tuesday July 17th – Amy Winehouse
Wednesday July 18th – Lily Allen
Saturday July 21st – Bright Eyes
Sunday July 22nd – Pet Shop Boys

None of the bands are particuarly shite, but there aren’t any that I’d make the effort to drive for four hours for.

Tickets are on sale for all dates now, with the exception of Pet Shop Boys who go on sale at 6pm on next Tuesday, April 24th.

 

Random Aside #4

 
By on Wednesday, 18th April 2007 at 11:10 pm
 

Just watched History Boys again. I’d forgotten just how good a film it is – funny, interesting, knowledgeable and just what I wished my sixth form days were like.

If you haven’t already seen it, go to your local Blockbuster, Bittorent or (preferably) your local Library (but don’t hastle the staff too much – they’re very stressed don’t you know!)

The soundtrack is superb – The Clash, The Smiths, New Order, Echo and the Bunnymen – just superb, and I’ve started downloading them all so I can remind myself of what classics they are – they were all tracks I know but don’t have in my 9,000 song collection.

Oh how I wish I was born in the 80’s (Calvin Harris anyone?)
