canadian_turtle: (Misfits || Simon and Nathan)
After discovering Misfits a few months ago (and because of that the awesomeness that is Iwan Rheon) I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that Iwan's also a musician. I saw some of his Spring Awakening performances on YouTube and he sounded absolutely brilliant so of course I was stoked when I heard that he regularly performs in London as well. The gig I went to this week was in Belham and when I got out of the tube station there was a very familiar guy walking in front of me, guitar case in hand: Iwan himself! I didn't bother him, but it was pretty neat to see him before the show like that. As soon as we got to the pub/venue he went over to a table where some of his friends were seated and started chatting to them, so I just I went to the area where the gig was going to be held.

There were several acts that night, the first one a group called The Dunwell Brothers Band and their music was upbeat and really fun imho. They were followed by a guy who's name I don't remember and tbh I didn't care much for his act. After a short interval it was finally Iwan's turn and he was brilliant (despite the fact that he kind of lost his voice because of too much drinking the night before roflmao). He played for about half an hour which didn’t give me a lot of time to take pictures because I also recorded a few of his songs, but I still managed to get a few half decent shots (mostly because I was sitting at a table at the front XD). After Iwan, Rich Hall was supposed to be on but he had apparently cancelled last minute so instead the host of the night (and former member of Iron Maiden and Cutting Crew) Tony Moore did a few songs, amongst which the Cutting Crew's most famous single "(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight". Pretty fun, but of course not as awesome as Iwan was <3
