I’m excited to see The Magic Number tonight at the Kentish Town Forum. This will be the third time seeing them. We saw them at the same venue about a year ago, and before that at the much smaller Borderline, off Tottenham Court Road. That first gig was well before the buzz about them had started, and well before the release of their first album, so the it was a little more exciting. Our friend Tom heard about them early on. Now of course the bloom is off the rose, and their second album is a little too samey. They’re great live, though, and they’re selling a recording of each of their two night sets at the forum within 10 minutes of the set finishing, which is quite cool.
