I'm new to the forum, but I have to tell this story.......though 2.5 years old.

I saw Jesca Hoop with Elbow at Cambridge Corn Exchange, and, like many here, checked out some of her songs on MySpace. I absolutely fell in love with "Enemy", and whilst my mates were in the bar, I made my way to the front to listen to Jesca.

At the end of her set, she announced "this is my last song", so I shouted, "play Enemy". She looked stunned that anyone knew about the song, and asked who shouted out. I replied. She said "Steve, thank you for recognising my music, I hadn't planned to play this, and haven't rehearsed it.....but here it goes". Part way through, she stopped, apologised, and went on to play another song. A bloke next to me said, "do you know her" and I said "no, I just heard the song on MySpace".

Anyone else on this forum stack my story up.....I didn't dream it, honest!

Me n mrs sparky are going watching Jesca at the Deaf Institute on Saturday

Magic Arm are supporting. Craig has mixed a couple of songs for him apparently and the local paper says "The most innovative and sparkling new musician in Manchester"

Sounds like a good do!

Have a great time - isn't it good when you can discover someone new as the support act too? I hope they live up to expectations.

Anyway I'm sure Jesca will be fantastic - isn't Snowglobe a wonderful EP? I particularly love City Bird and the title track.

Thanks glendarian
Should be a good night....will report back
Snowglobe is indeed a great EP , although I was a bit surprised when "Reves Dans Le Creux" came on and it turned out to be the french version of "Dreams In The Hollow" I knew my lack of attention in class would one day catch me out!

Jesca was great on Saturday
Brilliant songs and good story telling. I still can't understand why she hasn't reached a wider audience.

It was good to bump into Jones, Shirley and Chris too

I wish she had played "Love Is All We Have" which is the only non elbow song in my "brings a tear to the eye" chart. Particularly relevant with all the natural disasters we are seeing on our little planet.

Magic Arm was interesting enough for us to buy the CD on the way out, but it was Jesca who we were playing all Sunday

For totally different reasons to Friday, another great gig.

I happened to be looking at Twitter this afternoon and saw Jesca mention that she was playing at the Apple store tonight in Covent Garden in London before the final gig of her tour later in the evening.

She played a 30-min acoustic set including Murder Of Birds, City Bird (goosebumps!) and Hunting My Dress, plus two others which I didn't recognise and now can't find the names of. There were less than 30 people actually sat down to listen to her and most of the store was still open for normal business, there was a huge amount of background noise. I felt kinda bad for her 'cause she deserved a much bigger audience. Tons of applause from those who were actually listening though.

I got to say hello briefly and get a photo with her before she played - she's so pretty. Smile

Good to see you and meet Mrs Sparky too! Hope you got back to Yuckston ok Laughing

Jesca was great! It's the first time I've seen with her band.

Kim, what a lucky girl you are, glad you got to see her in the end!

Oh her gig in The Deaf Institute was amazing!
She is such an incredible artist; wonderful musically, lyrically and vocally.
Wish she'd come over to Ireland again but that doesn't seem likely until next year... Sad
She's also really, really good at the banter and dealing with shouts/comments etc from the audience,
that's a gift in itself!
I love her voice and her lyrics, she's awesome!

Well folks, I'm sure you'll all have a good night. We saw Jesca at the Deaf Institute earlier this year and she was brill.

I've just got tickets to see Cherry Ghost perform an acoustic set at the Deaf Institute the night after, which goes some way to easing my disappointment at missing the Sunday gig. Smile

Jesca was brilliant again last night.

Hopefully her new album will get her a bit more exposure, she must be one of the most underrated songwriters around at the moment.

highlights for me were "The Kingdom" which I've not seen her do live before and a few of the new songs sound great.

And it was worth the ticket price just to see andy_landy handing out Jesca's homemade cookies to the audience. (you had to be there Very Happy )

Hope to see you at a few more gigs in Manchester andy_landy now that you're spending more time in God's country.

We are on the ferry coming back from 3 weeks Greek island hopping. We left the night that "the house that jack built" was released and we haven't heard anything from civilisation since then.

Has Jesca taken over the world yet?

If she is number 1 on both sides of the Atlantic and playing to a sold out MEN I'll be pleased for her but I'll miss those nights at the cornerhouse and the deaf institute.

The best album of the year for me.
