Alcohol and Music – friend or foe?

I have a mixed record with Jimmy Cake gigs – I often seem to be a bit *tired* and so find them hard to get into. This concert (in the Button Factory, formerly Temble Bar Music Centre) did not in some ways gel for me; arriving late having already had a few after work sherries might not have helped. That said, I was impressed by the music I heard, much of which seemed to come from their new album. The Cake seem to be pursuing a more piano-keyboard driven approach these days than previously, which could make their new album rather different to the ear than the earlier ones. I generally fear change, though this time round – I like it.
