All About Eve’s “All About Eve” and “Scarlet And Other Stories” were two of my favourite albums from the late 80’s. I’d been lucky enough to see All About Eve live twice before, both times at The Royal Albert Hall (GIGS 048 + 049) but The Town & Country Club in Kentish Town offered a different atmosphere. Whereas The Royal Albert Hall was all seating (and our seats had been ‘amongst the Gods’) the T&C was standing downstairs which allowed people to actually dance, plus it was also a smaller, more intimate, venue. It still held a couple of thousand or so, but compared to the RAH it certainly felt more cozy.
This was also the first of a double-header again for the Eves as I went both on this night (a Saturday) and also the following night too. Both nights saw Levitation support, although I felt Levitation were better on the first night over the second. The Eves gave a really good show (as per usual) on the Saturday but, for whatever reason, the Sunday performance really kicked ass and my favourite of the two.
I went with Dawn, Adam, Tim, Gini and Jake on the Saturday and with Emily and Jake on the Sunday.
