A swirl of excitement

Perhaps it's good karma coming my way that has meant after setting up my blog lots of exciting music-themed events will take place,or maybe it's just coincidence.Either way I am incredibly excited to announce that I just booked tickets to see my much beloved White Stripes at the Wireless festival.For those of you who don't know me personally The White Stripes are my favourite band and I love them dearly,I've seen them live twice before and they were so magnetic and mesmerising.I went to Wireless for the day last year and it was wonderful,and as I am rather infatuated by London it's great to have an excuse to go there for a couple of days.This is also the only White Stripes date in the UK this year according to the NME(not always the most reliable source I know,but something that will fuel the festival selling out quickly nonetheless)and I am desperate to see them live again after being unable to see them at all when they toured 'Get Behind Me Satan',an album I was listening to just this morning as it happens!
June may just be the greatest month on record with releases from Ryan Adams and The White Stripes,I sense July will be crushing as a result though.

There's a rumour they're playing the Indian Summer festival up here too, we shall see. They're not band that have overly moved me but it will be good to catch them live... I nearly caught them at T in the Park a good few years back, but they had to pull out when Jack broke his hand and the Flaming Lips took their place on the main stage instead. Now THAT was one hell of a show!

Thank you for your comment.I missed them that year too and ended up with a day ticket to Reading and very few decent bands to see.They are phenomenal live and well worth seeing if you get the chance.

Also, would you rather be linked as a music blog or a friend's blog? ;)
