Hello Everyone!

Postby pixies_dad » Tue Nov 17, 2009 6:45 pm

Hi there, I'm something of a recent convert to Evan / The Lemonheads; I was introduced to their music by my girlfriend Jo, & for that I'm very grateful.

We live in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire, it's a little town in the middle of the Pennine Hills about half way between Manchester & Leeds.

I first (sort of) saw the full band when we were at the SXSW Music festival Austin (Tx) last year. Unfortunately, we couldn't get into the gig (@ Emo's annexe I think) :cry:, so we listened from outside (they still sounded great). However, we did manage to catch Evan @ The Cluny in Newcastle later in the year, we got there (very) early & we were lucky enough to be in the concert room as Evan did his sound check..Talk about a starstruck girlfriend :lovedup: :lol: We also saw the full band @ Manchester Academy in October this year. :D

On Friday we're going to Paris for a romantic weekend. Jo doesn't know yet, but I've booked the hotel right opposite Flech D'or (where Evan just happens to be playing) ;)

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you all.

Best Regards


Michael aka pixies_dad & Jo

Hi missjane, Thanks for the warm welcome. I'll get Jo to subscribe to the forum this evening, although I'm struggling to upload my own avatar :rolleyes:

Cheers Smudge, thanks for the warm welcome. Yes, it was an amazing show; I took a piccy of Evan during his sound check on my (crappy) phone. Unfortunately, I can't seem to upload any piccies onto this site :rolleyes:

If you look closely, there's a size requirement on the uploads. :confused:
