Another busy few days in front of us. On Friday evening we head up to Manchester for the weekend. We are going to see the wonderful Magnetic Fields again and this time we get to see The Real Tuesday Weld playing as well should be great.

I gather that Manchester has changed a lot since we were last there. They have benefited from some great new buildings and museum/galleries over the last few years. We certainly aim to take in a few of those during our travels. It’s also a chance to catch up with Orynthia’s cousin who has been studying in Manchester for a couple of years.

Then on Monday evening we get our second chance this year to see the sublime Iron & Wine, should be an interesting gig as it’s the night before the American election, then again Sam Beam is not the most talkative guy in the world, so maybe he will keep his cards pretty close to his chest.

Forgot to say that when were away I read Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem. Earlier in the year I read his latest novel The Fortress of Solitude, which I really enjoyed. He has a great talent for setting you exactly in a location, and you can really feel the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan in his work. Very enjoyable indeed.
