Friday was Sacrilege which turned out to be a very trad goth affair (with [livejournal.com profile] nevla as one of the guest DJs) until just before I had to leave because of knackeredness and the EBM came on. :/ Click the thumbnail and then on the link for the set on the right hand side for the rest of the photos:

DJ Nevla


Saturday I went shopping, relaxed, watched DVDs, processed Sacrilege photos and braised an awesome lamb shank for dinner:

Slow Braised Lamb Shank


More telly and DVDs later and then, just before I finally wanted to go to sleep, I read that Clarence Clemons had died. That news really got to me, although I had been fearing it after his suffering a stroke the previous weekend. As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of Springsteen's music and the Big Man's saxophone and stage presence are an integral part of the experience. Here's a video of Jungleland, forward to 4:15 for the sax bit if you like, and you'll see/hear what I mean:



On Sunday I was mostly depressed and didn't do anything constructive except two loads of laundry and a simple dinner (ratatouille with couscous). I also watched the dire remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still (mostly because Jennifer Connelly was in it) on telly and then the superb Lemmy documentary on DVD.

Now I'm at work and moping but I'm going out for dinner tonight so that should pick me up.

Club Sacrilege ran a Halloween Special last night and the Undead and other critters turned out in droves.
A fine need indeed with cool music, cool people and lots and lots of fun.
Here's a first selection of photos, more to come, i.e. I'm going to expand the set on flickr as I process more images.

It was another fine night at the Q Club providing the best music for the alternative scene in Cambridge on a Friday night.
Still no improvement to the lighting at the club so it's either red or blue or slow flash but I guess I need to live with that.
There was a good turnout for a summer's night and everybody seemed to have a good time.
More info about the club on the Sacrilege website.

As always, more photos on flickr.

was cool indeed. Varied selection of music (even [livejournal.com profile] technotom's set was less goffic than I feared ;P) Considering it's summer, the turnout was excellent, too, and people seemed to have a good time.

A huge thanks to all my friends for feeling [livejournal.com profile] xambrius welcome, he had a good time. :o)

I'd picked him up earlier from the station, checked him into Westminster Collage (I hate not being able to offer crash space), then we had dinner at Tanh Binh and took a leisurely walk through town past Reality Checkpoint until we ended up at the Dev. After a pint of Sparta, [livejournal.com profile] razornet joined and we had a good chat about stuff and another pint or two.
Then [livejournal.com profile] xambrius was being silly and called [livejournal.com profile] martinhesselius, handing his phone to me (in revenge for the same thing Glas did at ICC a few years ago ;)

This afternoon we'll be doing the touristy thing in Cambridge (incl being lazy and have us punt down the Backs). Anyone who would like to join us is more than welcome.
We'll probably end up doing a little pub crawl in the evening, again the more the merrier. Probably Cambridge Blue, Dev, Elm Tree, ending at the Pickerel because that's closest to Tim's abode. ;)

Photos to follow.

I've updated the flickr set. Click the thumbnail and then the link for the set
Here's a sample:

Last night's Club Sarcrilege in Cambridge was another success.
Guest DJ this time was the inimitable Deathboy who play a stonking set of filthy tunes you don't get to hear much (at least not at alternative nights in Cambridge)
The Q Club changed their ambient lighting again (now mainly red and blue LED spots) which made shots in the seating areas basically impossible, at least without annoying the punters with bright flash so there aren't many of those.
Here's a selection

Gods, I'm knackered, and that after almost 8 hours sleep. *groans*

Sacrilege last night in Cambridge sadly was not very busy but it was still a good night with excellent music and colourful people.
For some reason, the light was a lot poorer than last time (both weaker and redder) so the flash had to come out a lot.

The opening night of Sacrilege last night seems to have been a big success. Excellent turnout, lots of people I hadn't seen in years and obviously the reopened Q Club which holds a lot of fond memories for the local alternative crowd. As was to be expected, the music was rather 1999, which was pretty much the intention.
So yeah, finally an alternative night in Cambridge on a Friday!

It was also excellent to finally meet [livejournal.com profile] d_floorlandmine (who also took photos) and [livejournal.com profile] technotom, yay!
