Hi, this is Laura blogging from London! My friends and I headed to see the Darling Buds play at the Water Rats in London last night they’re a really great band and (bonus!) the lead singer is Jamie Campbell Bower (Caius in New Moon) as well as a really nice guy. We saw Jamie walking around the bar before the show, being low-key just chatting with friends as well as his mum who was there too she was obviously really proud of him and they looked
Jamie squeezed past us a couple of times on his way to and from the stage (we were daring each other to grab his arse but he¹s just too nice a guy) and we managed to maneuver down to the very front so had a great view for the whole show! The set was amazing and Jamie was being really funny, chatting about how much fun he was having and what a great crowd we were.
After a couple of songs, he asked if anyone had something he could drink since his throat was really dry, so I handed him my water bottle (I was standing so close and no one else was offering). Jamie was so cool and said “Thank you sorry, that’s really gross of me isn’t it?” to which I joked “Are you suggesting I’m gross?! and he bantered back with “No, no, you’re gorgeous for lending me your drink” (random use of the word “gorgeous” much,
anyone?!) He handed the bottle back, but I said “I can¹t take it now everyone here will think I’m weird for wanting it back” and Jamie replied “No, no, I don’t think you’re weird please, it¹s yours,” by which time the drummer, Dan was said “I’ll have it!” It was all very amusing!
They were getting really into the songs and Jamie came right up to the very front edge of the stage and leaned into the crowd for some of his guitar solos (and a great photo op!) and for the last song, he was singing out-loud and playing on his knees, just going with it and ended up finishing the set by jamming on his back, writhing around and really into the music!
After the show, we spotted Charlie Bewley (Demetri in New Moon bad vampire double bonus!) coming up to the stage to congratulate his friend on the great gig. Jamie jumped off the stage to take pictures with us and he asked my name and as we shook hands he said “you were at the last gig weren’t you? I remember you!” How awesome is that? Jamie told me the Darling Buds are going on tour in November!
He chatted with us for a few minutes and then we went to find Charlie, who was outside and when I asked him for a photo and he said “Sure – but I feel bad because it’s Jamie’s night” but then Jamie came and joined us and we got a couple of really fun group shots and Jamie joked “It’s like a New Moon cast party right here!” He then thanked us profusely for coming and said “I hope to see you at the next gig,” and we’ll definitely be there!!
