Caro Emerald in Cardiff
We stayed overnight, at the Royal Hotel again - oldest hotel in Cardiff, fab location, and cheaper than many 'budget' chains; staying there is a bit of a no-brainer. We're still getting the Urchins used to us not being around all the time. Cardiff is only an hour and a half by train, so we were able to get home to them quickly today. Our next trip will be another overnighter, but further away. We both love Cardiff; it's a city that knows how to party. After a walk around to see what had changed, we enjoyed some Indian street food in 3B's Cafe in one of the Arcades.
And so to the gig. We had great seats in the stalls. The support act, Irit, was weird but good: a little bit Parisian cafe jazz, flamenco-y guitar and a bluesy twist too. Irit, the singer, was accompanied by an accordion player and a guitarist.
We got the Emerald Island EP, so I'll give it a good listen to and it'll get its own post. If you get the chance to see Caro Emerald on this tour, I'd definitely recommend it.
