So in the last week and a bit I went to four Cobra Starship shows. In my defence, I only intended to go to two. For the record, it is extremely dangerous to check the availability of tickets while you're still feeling the post-show high.

Also in my defence, Cobra Starship are incredible live. Every show, I came out of it feeling giddy and happy and just so glad to have gone, and every show, they seemed so happy and excited and on, when they were on stage. They have such joy on stage -such fun- and more charisma and charm than anyone can possibly be expected to resist. And they manage to be even hotter in person than on screen, which you would not think possible.

This is probably a placeholder post until I can get coherent about them, which is not easy. I really can't say enough about how much I love seeing this band. It's not just that the music is great live, but they know how to work a crowd and every show is good and different to the last. They're professionals, but I went to four shows and the opening banter for the songs was different for each one. They play around on stage and they rock the fuck out and they have all this great energy and they throw it out to the crowd. They want you to have to have a great time and they're having a great time and it shows.

It goes both ways because the crowd loves them. Not every show was sold out, but three of the four shows I went to were, including the London Astoria two (cap. 1,200), which was not only sold out, but sold out so much that even the touts were left begging. I think that may have been the biggest non-festival. I don't know if London loves them particularly, but it has had more chance to see them and it is a proven fact that exposure to Cobra Starship leads to an increased desire to see them again. And again. And then be sad and somewhat bitter that you can't see them a fifth time.
