HOLIDAY!! by Gareth

Since Friday, we have played three gigs in California. All these gigs have been close enough to our base in Studio City to mean we’ve stayed in the same hotel and commuted to each of the shows at the El Rey, Pomona and Costa Mesa (and all these shows have been so great. Thank you very much for coming along, and for being so friendly towards us). This has meant we’ve had some of the most leisurely, pleasurable days on tour I have ever known. Mornings spent lounging by the pool, before a short drive, a show, and then a short drive back, to a bed with sheets that seem almost homely. Brilliant.

And today we have a day off. Rumours of a trip to The Michael Jackson Death House, but no doubt about a trip to Amoeba. Expect some top class Record Boxing this afternoon.

i hope the money i paid to see you in manchester in october didn’t go towards that manyoo shirt.

Nah mate, don’t worry. I made sure that money went direct towards paying Mickey Owen’s wages.

You´re great, Manchester Utd too, but Boca Jrs´ better! jaja. Bye!

Fun to “meet” you all at the Detroit Bar. Thanks for making good on your promise to play. ps.. I don’t share the POV of “F Costa Mesa” like the other audience member. I rather like my hometown.

Comment by David

Wow, that place looks like paradise

That last photo is awesome. I think its the look of the girl in the background with the “Wait… is that one guy leapfrogging over that other guy?” look on her face that elevates it from solidly awesome to memorable status.

I enjoyed seeing Los Campesinos! at the El Rey and the Glasshouse. They absolutely killed at both shows.I was so happy to see them. And that last picture is absolutely amazing. I have never seen that before 🙂

Got to see you at Coachella (amazing!!). My husband dug your gig at El Rey. With all his raves, I went with a friend down to Costa Mesa to catch you!! Hoping to catch you in San Diego!

Enjoy the rest of your tour!

Who is on the back of your new kit, Gareth? Giggsy? Wayne? Do tell. Good luck on the rest of the tour. Seattle again soon???

Plain back at the moment. In the old days I had, at times, Mark Hughes or Paul Scholes. Or me own surname with the number 8. I’m a centre half these days though, so would probably be 4.
