I realise I have not written on here in literally forever, so I thought I would update you on what I have been up to.
Uni has taken over my life, but I have done some pretty cool stuff on the side. Working at Big Cheese (check out reviews under the name of Claire Thomas), getting to see some of my favourite bands for free. VIP BITCHESSSSSSSSSSSSS (Enter Shikairi, All Time Low and Lower than Atlantis). Listening to some pretty sweet albums before generally release, interviewing some the coolest bands in music and generally living the dream.
I intend to update this more regularly with my reviews and opinions on stuff relating to the beautiful world of music.
If you want to know what I am up, and laugh at my general existence then follow me on twitter: @clairecasualty
Hopefully see you at a gig near you (most likely in Southampton and London),
so happy with the new additions to reading and leeds:
At least now I can escape the drones of indie bands who sound the equivalent to an elephant snoring with a semi guitar back-ground. Yuck. And they are all in tents so if the heavens open I will be safe. But would really like some heavier bands aka While she sleeps etc….
