So I thought I’d catch you up with a little something that’s going on as part of the Levenshulme Festival this year, The Levy Jamboree.
It’s a little gig on Friday the 9th of November at the Klondyke club in Levenshulme , organised by Lou Armer who organises the Levy Uke Up that I’ve mentioned previously on here, and featuring all local artists. Weirdly enough, I’ll actually be playing the banjolele as part of the Levy Uke Up (as will my better half on her uke) so do feel free to come and heckle, it would be lovely to see you!
Conveniently enough, Lou’s band, Lou and the Llamas (although you could have guessed that, right?) played their first gig a week and a bit ago and I shot a few frames of film while I was there. I’ve just got them back and well, now seems like the perfect time to share. All of the Black and white shots were taken with an Olympus OM10 on 35mm Ilford XP2 Super 400 and the lone colour shot was taken on a 1920s (I think) Voightlander 6×9 folding camera on Portra Pro 160 VC.
If you do come down on Friday, do come early as all of the acts are good, and if you enjoy live stuff with real instruments of the more gently acoustic persuasion, you’ll be in for a right treat. It may only be the Llamas’ second gig, but they play beautifully together and create a wonderful sound. So, I’ll stop wittering on now and let the photos speak for themselves.
Enjoy your week and maybe see you on Friday? I’ll be frantically practising till then!
