Last night, my other half an I went on a rare night out. We went to see a local singer/songwriter called Joe Brooks. Although my claustrophobia, caused by being squashed into a venue built for about 200 and containing about 400 (mostly) 20ish year olds, threatened to ruin my night, I really enjoyed this young lad's music. Moreover, he came across as not only talented, but a nice chap too. I was glad that we'd made the effort and I wonder if, in years to come, I'll be telling everyone that I saw the now very famous Joe Brooks when he was just starting out. You can hear some of his songs on his Myspace page here.
