I Heart Holly Throsby!

A topsy-turvy weekend with a Sunday night concert throwing me into disarray (not on a school night!) but ended up being well worth it. Yumi had organised tickets for a delightful group of friends to see Holly Throsby at The Basement  (gorgeously intimate space cursed with over priced food).

Toby Martin from Youth Group played a lovely set first up... Holly performed like a kindy-teacher reading stories to a bunch of ramshackle yet enthralled kids. Then her multi-tasking economically efficient 2-piece band came along.  When the glockenspiel and cello were broken out I was joyous - what a gorgeous sound.

So grandma survived a late Sunday night - nothing that a good affogato couldn't fix today!
