A Real Hero

Yesterday I went to see College (David Grellier) perform followed by a screening of Drive at Gorilla in Manchester. I'd never been to Gorilla before and only recently heard about it, but it was really nice inside with its wood panelling and floor to ceiling windows. I think it's part of the Trof family and the prices definitely reflected that. We had a meal before the gig and my halloumi kebab came to £9.00. It was really tasty though and I would definitely recommend it if you're not on a tight budget. Mmmm.

Although it was a seated performance because of the film screening, I did enjoy the set. Of course he saved 'A Real Hero' until the end. Some people decided to start dancing in the aisles at that point.

Even though I've seen Drive quite a few times (favourite film) it was still as mesmerizing and captivating as the first time. In fact, I think I fell in love with Ryan Gosling just that little bit more, if that's possible. I didn't see the appeal until I saw Drive, but I think that's partly to do with the character he portrays. I mean, who wouldn't want to date a broody muscly guy who's willing to smash a guy's head with his foot for you? That's my kinda guy.

The best part was probably when everybody cheered at the end. I won't go into too much detail about the plot etc. as there's many amazing reviews of it on the interwebz, but it's safe to say that you MUST WATCH THIS FILM.

It also reminded me to dig out the pencil drawing that I did of the Gosling after I became obsessed with the film and its soundtrack.

It was a labour of love. And reminds me that I should get sketching again.
