I never could get the hang of Thursdays

Sticks and stones may break my bones

I went to see Pete Doherty play a solo set at the Ritz in Manchester tonight.

It was amazing. I know some people say he’s a waster and so on, but he really was impressive tonight. He’s got so much presence, the way he plays his songs so casually and differently every time rather than the rehearsed perfection you get when listening to someone like, oh I don’t know, The Pigeon Detectives.

It’s about as close as I’ll get to hearing Libertines songs played live by the man himself as well, which was really amazing even if it was with a single accoustic guitar. And Babyshambles, of course. Fuck Forever was fantastic.

Say what you like, the man’s a legend.
