    Really excited for the Fanfarlo show. Completely gutted when they weren’t able to make it last time around. What a horrible night that was: put the Fanfarlo/Freelance Whales show behind me only to head over to the Drake to find out that Laura Groves (aka Blue Roses) couldn’t make it either. Resigned in defeat and curled up on the couch with a bowl of ice-cream for the night.

    Here’s hoping for better.
