I don’t like loud noises, crowds of people or dark places, so essentially I’m gig phobic, but I loved Gabby Young and Other Animal’s gig at Scala. As I walked into the venue it had the feeling of festival or perhaps a village fete, and the cakes, arts and craft and bunting eased me in. There were lots of familiar faces there including Maria Papadimitriou of Plastic Seconds, Anushka Tay, illustrator Sandra Dieckmann and Katie Antoniou.

The gig itself was amazing. Gabby Young played every track from her new album The Band Called Out For More, and then finished with a few favorites form her previous album. Her voice is so incredibly beautiful and the entire band played with passion; definitely an album I need to get. She looked stunning in a head piece made by Anushka Tay and dress by Amelia Mullins. My camera was next too useless in the dimly lit venue, so here are some beautiful photos by Gem Hall Photography. You can preorder the album now.
