John Newman at Electric

Last night I grabbed Frankie from work, ate a quick dinner, and hopped on the underground down to Brixton.

Well, we got as far as Victoria before the line was closed, London transport is never friendly when you have to be somewhere fast is it?

A black cab ride later, we made it to Electric Brixton to see John Newman perform on his last night of his sold-out UK tour. His latest album has been on loop on my Spotify for a few weeks, and you can listen to it at the bottom of this too.

I am always a little indecisive as to what to wear to some gigs, though last night I opted for a Bomber Jacket, I <3 NYC Tee, Topman Spray-On Skinny Jeans, and Nike Air Max 90 trainers.

You may have seen Topman mention the skinny jeans recently, as they have launched their ‘Spray On Jeans’ SS14 collection. Skinny jeans are back in the spotlight again, but this time even skinnier than before, and in a range of different colours. To be honest with, they may be tight, but they sure are comfortable!
You can find the range here, and then once you have your pair, put an outfit together and Instagram a pic with #TopmanSprayOnJeans to show off your style!

I rolled mine up two folds, and threw on my new Nike Air Max Trainers...

Which were not, in any way, going to get dirty tonight!

As the delayed crowd filtered in, we grabbed some drinks and made our way up to the box to get a good view as Mr Newman came on stage...

... and watched on as he belted out his songs from his album 'Tribute.'

My personal fav is 'Losing Sleep', which is going to be his next single! Check it out below.

Before we knew it, the confetti was shooting up into the ceiling as he closed the set with his single 'Love Me Again', which sent the crowd into a frenzy and chanting 'more' long after he had left the stage.

The only downside to the gig was the fact he didn't sing the Rudimental track he was featured on, but apart from that, it was a great gig with some brilliant music!
If you want to see who is lined up to play at Electric, then take a look here. They have some good artists being announced over the coming weeks, so keep you eyes open and check back!

In the mean time, plug your headphones in or turn your speakers up, and have a listen to 'Tribute' below!
