Ted Leo @ King Tut's

On Saturday night along with the TPID boys and friends I went to see Ted Leo and the Pharmacists play King Tuts. This was part of a UK tour, which in turn was part of a larger European tour. We were quite lucky as circumstances meant that Ted Leo had to cancel the rest of the tour and fly back home the next day. So this was the tour’s last night.

This time there was an extra guitarist to augment the group to a four piece. They played a lot from the new LP Living With the Living as well as many fan favourites.

My favourite tunes were probably the first two songs of the encore ‘Timorous Me’ and ‘Walking to Do’. The one that met with the best reaction from the crowd was probably ‘Bottle of Buckie’, his song on hanging about in

The show ended with Ted casting his guitar aside, nearly hitting Chris the drummer with it in the process, before he launched himself headfirst into the crowd, where he continued singing despite practically landing on his head as folk struggled to keep him held up.

There’s a handful of photographs below. Underneath them there's the video for Bomb Repeat Bomb.
