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!
