Nothing But Thieves @ Camden Roundhouse 19.11.2017

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been to see Nothing But Thieves and I honestly never get bored, I know literally all of the lyrics, can jam to every song and the boys never disappoint when putting on a good show. It was also my first time seeing a group at Camden Roundhouse which is actually a very nice venue, I have been to Camden Electric Ballroom which is another completely standing venue and I really liked Roundhouse. The boys had a very awesome set with their banner behind and their light set up. 

Both my Dad & I set off and drove to London and arrived at our hotel Danubius Hotel Regents Park in St John’s Wood, which is directly opposite Lord’s Cricket Ground. It’s a lovely hotel inside with ornate lights and comfy chairs in reception, a gym and a large restaurant which is used for buffet breakfast and dinners and a conference room which is used for lots of different events. After we checked in and took our luggage up to our room we decided to make our way to Camden.

 

We headed down towards the river and walking alongside ZSL London Zoo until we got to Camden Market. The autumnal vibes I got from walking down this river although it was absolutely pissing it down was so lovely. The mixture of orange and green leaves was beautiful. 

It was such a lovely walk to see another different side of London from the busy streets and to see a little bit of nature. We walked past lots of canal boats and lots of awesome houses that are on the river. It probably took us about an hour to walk all the way to Camden Markets and came to the food stalls which was filled with lots of different food smells flowing through the air. We took a little wander around the market stalls to kill some time and I even walked past one of my old favourite shops Cyberdog which I used to absolutely love when I was younger. 

After our little stroll around the stalls, we decided it was time to have dinner so we stopped in our favourite place Honest Burgers. It was the first time I’ve been in there since I turned veggie so of course I had to order their veggie burger which was their Fritter. It is made with cauliflower, tomato, sweetcorn, shallots, spices, coriander and cucumber yoghurt and served with rosemary salted chips. The burger is literally a massive onion bhaji in a brioche bun which I love.

After dinner we headed to a pub opposite the Roundhouse as we had an hour or two to kill before the doors opened so we had a drink in the pub whilst watching the end of the Man Utd game. I love the vibe of London pubs as people aren’t scared to talk to each other as me and my Dad were having a chat with two nice guys. Inside the Roundhouse is so nice and I like how no matter where you stand you have a great view of the stage. The supporting act came on and they were alright, I hadn’t heard of them before so didn’t know any of their music. And then Thieves came on and absolutely killed it. Their song choice – a mixture between new and old songs, their set and lighting – the lightning/crack lights which tie in with the album artwork and Conor’s vocals as always smash it. Despite all the negativity in the fan base recently the boys still put on an amazing show and kept the love and positive vibes going. (A blog post all about my thoughts on the recent negativity will be coming soon) 

 

 

 

 

 

After the concert, we headed back home via the tube and stopped off in a local pub near our hotel called The Volunteer for a drink and something little to eat before we headed back to sleep. We got up relatively early for breakfast which was a yummy full english buffet with views over looking Lord’s Cricket Ground and decided to head out shopping on Oxford Street and see the Christmas decorations and shop windows. I picked up quite a few bits before heading back home in the early afternoon.
