Looking round the interweb, you sometimes get the impression that web designers are more interested in showing off their latest graphic ideas, rather than making things usable. Not so much of a problem if all you're doing is trying to market something that can only be bought in the 'real world'. A lot more problematic if you're actually selling something online.
ULU Live is a bafflingly-designed site, so we're not quite sure whether tickets are still available or not for the gig we're about to tell you about. We're buggered if we can find any telephone contact information either, so can't even ring to find out. If you happen to be at a loose end around Bloomsbury tomorrow night, however, then pop down to ULU to see if you can get in to see Feist. Feist falls into the 'credible easy listening' pigeonhole, if you must insist on categorising her music. She's so trendy, the title track of her album Let It Die featured on an episode of The O.C. recently. Previews of Feist's songs are available via her website, under the let it die menu option.
Although out of the headlines now, the tsunami disaster still has a long-term effect that shouldn't be forgotten. Treat yourself to some excellent music whilst getting that glow of smugness that comes from helping a good cause, by going to Bush Hall on Saturday where The Magic Numbers play a gig to raise money for the Tsunami Appeal. Also featured are The Love Gods, Lazy Habits and Redstar. Tickets are a meagre £10. Quite frankly, we're shocked that a Magic Numbers gig hasn't sold out this close to the event.
If you get yourself along to Notting Hill in the afternoon to see The Hoosier Complex (mentioned in yesterday's post) then you've only got a short distance to travel to the Bush Hall gig, so that's your Saturday afternoon and evening sorted. You can thank us on Monday.
