How was your North American voyage? What did it entail? Did any crazy moments happen?
My show over there was really great and it was so special to play on the Sunset Strip. Here’s some other things about LA:
– You can buy Californian wine for about $4 and it’s really delicious, I think it has something to do with the tannins.
– The Seahawks are my favourite football team.
– Everyone seems to wake up late, so brunch is a really important thing there and they do it so well – most notably at Blu Jam Cafe on Melrose Avenue.
– I had a dyslexic moment with the money I took over so I accidentally had considerably less than I thought which made the last few days interesting.
– I walked about 40 minutes into Hollywood to catch Alice Phoebe Lou play a tiny solo show in a great venue – she was captivating as always.
– Lastly, I saw Cara Delevingne outside the Chateaux Mormont.
