I can report that the merch is lame, two versions of the same t-shirt (standard and ladies) and a tote bag

Sweet. I feel confident in my ability to get in the front row.

I haven't seen anything I like on their site or elsewhere, save for a random person at work I saw wearing a Leaders Of the Free World shirt a few years ago.

I interrupted his cell phone call (and apologized, of course) to tell him I loved that band. He did not mind being interrupted. (Sadly, he had a wedding ring on.)

I saw elbow last Monday for the first time and the concert was amazing. Right on the barrier. I squeezed Guy's hand! I need to see them again!!!

He really truly is very charming. I am in awe.

Will be curious to see if they change the set from show to show at all.

Listening to the new one for the second time. On first listen, I remember being a little disappointed that they appear to have gone full Doves, but I'm really not sure why that was a complain.

I'll come back when I'm further than two tracks in.

I'm seeing them tomorrow. This show really snuck up on me, so I'll need to find time to do a listening marathon at work.

The second half of the album IS better than the first half, but the first half certainly grew on me.

This is exactly how I feel . . . except the first half hasn't grown on me.

I caught their performance on Fallon. I'll never like this band, but it was pretty okay. Guy Garvey looks like a bit of a loser though. Overweight, bad clothes.

I am so dismayed I can only express my reaction in this gif timeline.

Seriously, give it a rest already. You're embarassing yourself.
