Elbow at High Lodge, Brandon, Suffolk - 29th June 2017

It's the second gig in the same week, this time to see the band Elbow in the pleasant forest setting of High Lodge, near Thetford. The band played a good mixture of old and new stuff, and whilst being broadly mellow could certainly rock things up when required. The hour delay horror of getting in to the venue was offset by the ease of getting out, as the venue opened up several off-road tracks which allowed us to swiftly escape through the dark forest.

next album: Camping at Dower House, West Harling, Norfolk - 1st July 2017
