Librarian hipster music

A friend of mine once declared my beloved Gillian Welch album to be 'hipster librarian music'. He was insulting it.


I don't know if he would have liked the gig I went to on a Sunday night last month....but me, I was in heaven.

The Lyttelton Rough House Revival came to town, and despite feeling quite muddled up routine-wise, I slipped into my dancing shoes (yes, Mary Janes like any other hipster librarian), downed a glass of champagne, and braved Napier's nightlife (this story is better if you remember it was Sunday).

Clearly not many other people were as brave as we were, because the Cabana was quiet, very quiet - until the gig started and then it got quite noisy, and well, very.....hot! Hands down one of the best gigs I have been to in a real long time.

If you fancy a bit of hipster librarian music - and I personally can't recommend it highly enough :) - then check out these guys
