Last Thursday I went to the Underworld for two consecutive nights. Both shows were sold out The Get Up Kids shows. The first night Welsh quartet Straight Lines supported and on the second The Xcerts (above) supported. Please click on the image above to launch a slideshow from the second night.

The shots of The Duckworth Lewis Method (above) and Leisure Society (below) were taken earlier tonight at the Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the Richard Thompson's Meltdown Festival. The rules for taking photos at the show were rather strange with photographers having to leave the venue after the first three songs of the support act only to return 30 minutes later to take pictures of The Duckworth Lewis Method! Click on the images to see more shots from the night.
The Duckworth Lewis Method were formed by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy and Thomas Walsh of Pugwash. The Duckworth Lewis Method is also the title of the group's debut album, which is a concept album about cricket. Hannon and Walsh have described their album as "a kaleidoscopic musical adventure through the beautiful and rather silly world of cricket.”
