The Sliver Seas, I hadn’t really heard of them, just entered a competition on the O2 Islington facebook page and I won…woohoo. Sadly I couldn’t actually find anyone to take up my plus one, oh well; I ventured out on my own again. I bet if it would have been a better know artist or a larger venue I would have had no problem finding willing volunteers.
I arrived late at the O2 Islington, but it wasn’t busy, just a few people making the place look untidy.
The support Charlene Soraia came on and although she tried really hard she couldn’t get the crowd to participate, it must have been quite demoralising for her.
More people had arrived by the time the Silver Sea’s came on, they started with the song “somebody said your name”, and later on the also played “Jane” which of course was written for my daughter (I can dream)! I did really enjoy the show, they guys had loads of energy and good vibes and the sound was brilliant. I managed to get hold of the set list and even a couple of signatures. They are playing again on the 6th March 2012 at the Borderline, but I have a sneaky feeling I may be away, on my epic Snow Patrol tour……!
