One of the benefits of being a 'lady of leisure' is waking to a day with no firm plans. So today, I went to Pure Groove to see a free lunchtime gig by Girls, a new band from San Francisco who released their debut album last month.
The lyrics are pure 60s California pop; the melodies are gorgeously alt-country and vocals are reminiscent of Elvis Costello. Although there were a couple of false starts, they came together to deliver a loud rocking finale. Smiles all round.
