Jamie Lidell (Esplanade, 18 March 2011)

The only thing worse than being late for a gig at the Esplanade the one time you’ve managed to get tickets in the front row is keeping three other people waiting for you, unable to go in, because you’re the one with the tickets. But soon after we finally got in there, Jamie launched into Multiply and I felt most of my frustration with Friday evening traffic and my own crapness rapidly ebb away. I’m a little burned out on writing about music since the 2010 album list so I won’t write a proper review, but he was immensely endearing, ebullient despite a turnout that I found disappointing, and his band were just as fun to watch as he was. Also, he wore the best jacket ever.

  1. Saw him a few years ago it was great. Kept switching around beatboxing stuff into a loopstation, DJing techno and doing his album material.
