Gossip Girl is one of my hugest guilty pleasures, and like most viewers, Jenny H. is definitley one of my most disliked characters, so I've never been a fan of Taylor Momsen, especially in Season 3!
When I heard that she had started her own band, The Pretty Reckless, I avoided listening to them and thought they wouldn't be that great.
Anyway, I came across 'Make Me Wanna Die' a while back, and was really impressed. I've always really been into my rock music and had to admit that Taylor is really talented and that the songs were great. I found out she was doing one night only in England, and knew I had to go. Lucky for me, it was at the O2 Academy Islington, so it was really convenient for me to get there. I decided to go with fellow blogger, Rachel, as I knew that she's a huge fan as well and that she was coming to London that day anyway for an amazing internship opportunity.
So, on Thursday, I met up with Rachel and we went to the gig together and it was absolutely amazing. After queuing for a while and getting a great place to stand at the venue, we were ready for some music.
The supporting act, Francesqa were spectacular. I'd never really heard of them before, but they absolutely rocked. I'm glad they were supporting and am absolutely in love with them right now. I'd definitely recommend you to check them out.
And the lead singer was so hot, with the most amazing hair ever.
They were very awesome and officially have a new fan, in me. They really got the room going and listening to them live was fanstastic.
The Pretty Reckless came on and played a shorter set than expected, but were really good nonetheless. I still can't believe Taylor Momsen is so talented and she was really good live as well. The rest of the band are pretty amazing as well, with the lead guitarist being fantastic.
Didn't the pictures all come out fabulously?? Rachel, who is an amazing photographer, was taking them with my camera. You seriously have to check the photoshoots she does on her blog and on her Flickr. I also never knew that my camera could take such great shots. I've only had it for a few weeks, so I'll be playing around with it a lot more.
What do you all think of The Pretty Reckless?? I know lots of people say that Taylor's too 'provacative' for her age, but Rachel and I were discussing this and don't think she's that bad.
