i went to see the sold out lily allen show at the showbox last night. the bird & the bee opened for her; a decent start but a little less energetic than i would've hoped. their song "won't you be my f-ing boyfried" was fun. although sold out, it didn't feel that crowded (at least not compared to the roots). lily allen started right off the bat with "LDN" & continued with her first story of the night about eating too much spicy food & having the shits. she kept the crowd going all night & i was happy to spend the evening dancing. some other highlights of the show were a keane cover, guest appearance of a member of the specials for "blank expression" & finally her cover of "heart of glass."
