The East Pointers - roots music from the incredibly musically fertile Prince Edward island in Canada - at St Lawrence's Church in Biddulph.

Next, it's John Hiatt on Monday and the Reverend Horton Heat on Thursday - both in London.

..oh and Martha Reeves in Brixton Wednesday. I'm watching the footy on Tuesday...

Triple-header in that there London:

John Hiatt and the Goners (featuring Sonny Landreth) at Under the Bridge - which is literally underneath one of Chelsea's stands. Nice small venue with good sight lines.

Then it was Martha Reeves and the Vandellas in Brixton's Blues Kitchen - a chain of southern inspired diners. This one has a long, narrow venue with crap lighting upstairs and that's where the 77 year old Martha Reeves and her sisters Lois and Delphine absolutely took the roof off. I've still got "Jimmy Mack" in my head now...

And finally it was the Reverend Horton Heat at the O2 Academy Islington, a purpose built venue (black and lots of concrete and soulless). Seen him three times and this was the best, with the addition of a keyboard player and a fantastic drummer that gave the songs a whole new impetus.

..and then I went to Paris to see Eels at the Olympia Theatre. Security told me to hand my camera in, so I played the stupid Englishman and said I'd take it back to the hotel. Went round the corner, stuck it down my pants, waited ten minutes and went back in again. (I wasn't the only person in there with a camera - there were several. A guy next to me had a bridge camera with a long zoom on it. I guess I was just unlucky)
Anyway - excellent gig. The thing that I like about Eels is that Mark Oliver Everett always reinvents the band musically. This was a rockier Eels than the last couple of times out and the set list reflected this. Two Prince covers (He's always been an influence on Mr Everett, right back to his first privately released album) and an encore medley which included Brian Wilson's "Love and Mercy", mixed with highlights from the new album and the old favourites re-arranged made up the set. Loved the Olympia as a venue - very similar in many ways to the Brixton Academy with its sloping floor, although the Olympia's floor was sprung, which was a very strange feeling when the audience started getting excited.

Next up I was on photo duty for Biddulph Up In Arms for the Ian McNabb gig. Two and a half hours - excellent value for money for a packed and receptive town hall.

Next it's not a gig, but it's the Pete McKee exhibition on Monday afternoon. After that it's Emily Maguire in Biddulph on Wednesday.
