Hamish Hawk at the Scala, London

Last night I was in London Town™️ to see the enigmatic Hamish Hawk at the Scala.

The lit up exterior of Scala venue in London's King's Cross at night, with black taxi's and pedestrians in front.

His 2021 album Heavy Elevator got a lot of plays with me last year, and his new one, Angel Numbers was released on Friday. As such, I haven't had time to really immerse myself in the new material, but what a superb first gig of the year! A truly fantastic performance from Hamish and his band, a great crowd who were all totally engaged and no loud people behind me talking through the whole thing. I can't remember the last gig I went to when this wasn't an issue!

All songs were crowd pleasers, but The Mauritian Badminton Doubles Champion, 1973 in particular got the biggest roar of approval.
