Took a break out of the Evol series last Monday to see Eliza Doolittle, who’s obviously a bit more mainstream than some of the other acts I’ve been to recently.
Her medium length set was delivered to a reasonable sized crowd who really got behind her. From the start her strong voice and well produced sound made an impression, whilst her band seemed to enjoy their role in supporting her.
Highlights of the night included her hits thus far (one of which she’s apparently set to re-release), a brilliant cover of Cee-Lo’s ‘Fuck You’ (aka Forget You for the radio audience) and the encore Medicine Man, which is surely set to be a hit. The set was a little short – as she herself said she only has one album of material to work with – but that didn’t detract from our enjoyment of the evening.
