Heather Findlay

The Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton

13 December 2018

There's a rumour going round the Slade Rooms that the support act (who I think was someone I was keen on hearing) had to pull out at the last minute, and the replacement is a "secret".

So the 30 or so people who got here early enough see Heather walk on stage at around 7.30 to explain the situation...

...pick up a guitar...

...and play Eyes of the Forest.

Apologising to us for not having time to prepare anything, and begging us not to film it in case it's bad, she plays a 30-minute set of whatever she can think of that isn't in the main set.

Such as How I Feel Today.

And a brand new Odin Dragonfly song.

I am now the first person in the world to hear a brand new Odin Dragonfly song.

It's like Christmas.

And finishing with a couple of covers: Grantchester Meadows (Pink Floyd) and Landslide (Fleetwood Mac).

It's all too perfect.

I'm seriously considering going home now, to preserve this as my lasting memory of the best concert I have ever seen.
