Live - in pictures: John Grant at Shepherds Bush Empire, London 15/5/13

John Grant, London 15/5/13
Just thought I'd put up a few of the pictures from the excellent John Grant gig a couple of weeks ago.

John was on fine form, the new songs sound much more powerful live, and the new band (mostly from Iceland) really do justice to the songs.

Highlights for me were 'Glacier' and 'Queen of Denmark', but there wasn't a duff moment all night.

Glacier - a stunning performance
A quick mention for the main support act too - 20 year old Ásgeir Trausti, also from Iceland, was excellent and I'm looking forward to the English-language version of his album (with lyrics translated with John Grant's help!) later in the year.
