Toad New Year’s Eve House Gig

Featuring Virgin Of The Birds and Broken Records

Toad Towers

Song, By Toad’s New Year’s party was a splendid way to see off the last decade, particularly as we were treated to up-close-and-personal sets from two acts who each had a big year in 2009. The evening kicked off with Jon from Seattle’s Virgin Of The Birds, a band who, with Ilona, You Should Still Be My Vampire Attendant, were responsible for one of the best songs of 2009. He was followed by local boys Jamie and Rory from Broken Records, who were having a well-earned festive break at home after a year which saw pretty much constant touring following the release of their debut album.

Toad’s got videos of the performances over there which you really should go and see. There’s one post for the Virgin Of The Birds videos , and a separate post for the Broken Records videos. They really are rather good.

The photos may look warm and cosy, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t all get ridiculously drunk later on to complete a night that saw in the new year in some style!
