Georgia Fair @ Southbank 19/05/11

Southbank is usually home to seedy footballers, annoying buskers and restaurants that you can only afford if you take out a second mortgage. But on Thursday night, it became an outdoor music venue, with a performance from Georgia Fair to promote Big M’s Weekender on Wheels competition.

Southbank worked surprisingly well as a music venue. The Big M bus was more than noticeable, however instead of being gimmicky, it felt oddly like sitting in someone’s living room, with the small crowd and heaters creating a cosy environment. And free flavoured milk helps.

The one downside to the event’s location was the aforementioned buskers. Being an acoustic duo, it was east for them to get drowned out by a persistent saxophonist but underneath the woodwind, the band sounded great. Their newest single Marianne sounded just as good without Boy and Bear or Lisa Mitchell and Picture Frames held its reputation as the perfect milk-drinking song.

Georgia Fair are playing a free in store at Pure Pop on the 29th May. They’ve also announced a tour with Daniel Lee Kendall, which will be all kinds of amazing.
