Rufus Wainwright, Lyceum
Rufus Wainwright's new album Out of the Game came out and I went with Alison (not a fan but a last minute replacement for poorly Anna) to see him play at the Lyceum in April. He was wonderous. I love- LOVE- Rufus Wainwright. He's the only musician I think I actually like, I like sad songs and I like poetry and I like sarcastic beautiful gay lads. I had never seen him live before, other than when we saw his opera and he just came on at the end and said thanks, he played the entirety of the album and a lot of favourites, he did three encores including bringing his sister Martha out and making her sing! Bonus! it was ace, I loved it and Alison got her book signed by Mark Gatiss who was sitting in front of us, I think that was the highlight for her, that and Sheekys afterwards.
Amy listens to radio 4, she goes to the theatre and she rents foreign films. In between this busy lifestyle she creates artwork for TV drama productions such as BBC One's 'Birdsong' and the upcoming Stephen Poliakoff drama 'Dancing on the Edge'. Besides TV she carries on the classic British tradition of silly pen and watercolour illustrations. She also likes to made badges.
