Hospital, I've Got A Thing For You..

So the time had indeed come! There were 20 pairs of tickets to see Metronomy and Roots Manuva at the Mercury Prize Sessions at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden available for tonight's performance.

I managed to secure tickets to attend and was really impressed with the performances. The event was hosted as part of this month's Barclaycard Mercury Prize Session with The Hospital Club. The Hospital wasn't what I expected, Grey Goose Vodka reception, Lobby area and the basement provided a state of the art music and TV studio. Seriously though Artois 4% wasn't for the acquired taste! It was complimentary though so can't complain!!

I'm familiar with Metronomy, or Joseph Mount as he’s otherwise known, I have attempted to attend several performances but reasons have prevented! Roots Manuva although they haven't featured heavily on my playlist I know some of the tracks that were played. What I enjoyed most about both performances was the energy and enjoyment displayed! Afterwards, the heavens opened and had to take shelter before eventually finishing the evening at Walkabout!! Memorable occasion and I definitely want to return to the Hospital Club to experience more soon..
