Molly's first (big) gig - The Girl Guide Big Gig 2009
Molly went off to London yesterday (Saturday) at 8am and got back home at 10:30pm. The reason? Her very first gig ever. It's the annual Girl Guides mega event gig - this year it was Wembley Arena. And she was very, very, very excited to be going.
The line up: JLS, Pixie Lott, Alphabeat, The Noisettes, Scouting For Girls, Tinchy Stryder, The Saturdays, Alexandra Burke, Chipmunk. Sadly (yeah, right) N-Dubz couldn't make it. A terrible shame. I can cope with many things for Molly, but having her come back a fan of that lot of mock-chav idiots is not one of them. The rules around Big Gig performers include requesting they don't drink before going on and refrain from inappropriate language/comments. But in the case of N-Dubz I find their very existence completely inappropriate.
Anyway, Molly had the greatest time. Loved JLS, The Saturdays and Alexandra Burke. Alphabeat were mad she says. Not so keen on Scouting For Girls or Chipmunk.
All of which means I'm now more determined than ever to find some good gigs to go to with her in the next few years.
