Bogtoberfest Day 15/Billy Bragg
Last night I went to see Billy Bragg here in Dunedin as part of the Otago Festival of the Arts. He did a two part show; the first half was songs from Woody Guthrie as it's the centenary of his birth this year and the second half was classic Billy Bragg. He told us a lot about the life and times of Woody which was really interesting although I would've enjoyed more songs.
I would've been happiest if he'd played the entire first couple of records and flagged the rest but that's just because they mean more to me. Unfortunately, there were too many people hanging out in the foyer to buy signed CD's for me to hang around so I hot footed it home to my warm bed.
