Haim Gig


I was invited by Seatwave to blog Haim's recent gig in London at the Forum, if you haven't heard of Haim they hail from Los Angeles California and are possibly the coolest girl band out there. I invited along with me one of my favorite ladies Jaymie. As we had both spoken in the past about how amazing it would be to see them live and then when I found out all the tickets were sold I was devastated. So I jumped at the chance to see them and they didn't disappoint. 

There were 2 support acts Saint Raymond and Childhood. Childhood reminded me and jaymie of Scott Pilgrim, and we enjoyed every moment of it! Saint Raymond (who i had briefly heard of) were amazing, really got the crowd hyped up and the mood was great. We got a good place to stand and watch all the bands which makes a change as normally when I go to gigs I'm too small to see anything and wedge between sweaty teenagers, that was ok when I was a teenager alas i am no longer!

I was pretty excited about seeing the lovely ladies perform, I loved the facial expressions of Este Haim pulled through out the entire gig you hello! haha so badass! The girls played a really strong set, and we all sang along to days are gone and other songs. The lights were pretty fab, but it made it hard to snap some good pictures with my awful iphone. I haven't been to a proper gig in a while and this might have been one of my favorite gigs of all time?

There is nothing I love more then ending a gig with a crazy amount of ticker tape flying through the air! We really enjoyed every second, from the WKD that made us feel young again to the very touchey feel couple I was wedged next to!

  1. Ella i'm so envious! I have a massive girl crush on all of these girls - my guitars are named after each member, and I was gutted when tickets sold out! This looks amazing though, and Este's bass faces are the best thing ever haha! xx

  2. Ahhhh! I love Haim! Loved them ever since I saw a feature in ASOS magazine about them last year. I wanted to see them but just had too much on :( Glad to hear you had a good time. I'll catch them next time they're in London.

  3. This is great! I've been so into their album, I would love to see them live. Looks like a super good time! :D And, for the record, I spent a sort of ridiculous amount of time debating with some friends last night that about whether Haim were from LA (as I thought) or from "Scandinavia somewhere" (randomly, as X number of friends thought). I have to say, I'm happy I was right. It feels good to be a music nerd sometimes!

    Cheers,

  7. Amazing. I saw them at the Chime for Change charity concert that Beyonce headlined. I remember thinking I'd go for a toilet break when they came on as I didn't know who they were. But when they came on, I thought they were brilliant and stayed for their whole set (still needing the loo!) Hope you had a brill time x
