Americana Annie: Here’s to Sunday night gigs

Gigs can sometimes feel like a big effort to get to, but they almost always repay in joy. On October 16th in Clwb Ifor Bach I got to experience brilliant alt-country band Richmond Fontaine for their last ever Cardiff performance, and meet their frontman Willy Vlautin, one of my favourite writers. Lovely people and so much talent in one room! Willy signed my copy of Northline – that I bought in Powell’s City of Books – with a writing quote:

Lisa, Make writing your friend above all else! It will protect you. Willy Vlautin, Cardiff.

Here’s to Sunday night gigs.
