Seeing Jake Bugg and Blossoms

Last Friday, a friend and I went to see Jake Bugg in Amsterdam. I wasn't the biggest fan of him. Mainly because I never heard of him before. I recently get notifications on Facebook of this club when there is a new artist performing at their venue. I did this because I always miss the memo that people are performing. I hear about it way too late, the concert is sold out and I get so mad at myself for not being informed - aka Troye Sivan's concert -.
Now I got this Facebook notification about Jake Bugg's concert. His name sounded interesting so I googled him and actually liked his sound. I then put myself on ‘interested’, so that I was able to look him up when I got home. -otherwise I really forget these things-  Then one of my friends messaged me and said that she saw that I was interested and asked if I wanted to go. As the concert enthusiast that I am, I immediately said yes and the rest is history,

The British band Blossoms was his opening act and I instantly liked their indie vibe. Guys with long hair and British accents who make great music? What's not to like? When I got home I bought their album on iTunes and I'm actually going to their gig in February with the same friend. I love discovering new bands this way!
The concert was at the Melkweg in Amsterdam, the same venue when I went to see DNCE (and Joe freaking Jonas liked my Instagram photo?!). I like the whole atmosphere and intimate vibe there. We got good spots as well so we could see everything. I'm very tall, so I can always get a good peak at what’s going on. One of the perks of having long legs I guess..
Then it was Jake's turn to perform. He performed really well live and oh man that guy can do so many things with a guitar. I didn't know many of his songs, so I went in there not knowing anything about his music. I always get kind of annoyed at myself when I don't know the lyrics to songs when I go to a concert, but sometimes a girl is just not in the mood or doesn't have time ya know. I think that's the best part about going to gigs: singing along and swaying along with your favourite songs. 

I will be able to do that next time though when I go and see Blossoms, but The 1975 concert will come up first at the end of January. So many exciting things ahead! :)

Do you listen to Jake Bugg or Blossoms? What are your favourite songs?
