Suburban Legends and Desi Murgh Curry – Special Chicken Curry

Suburban Legends were doing a UK tour and my girlfriend and I went to watch them in London Islington O2.

The gig was awesome!

If you haven’t heard of them, they are a ska band. They are fantastic! A few great songs by them to recommend

Bright Spring Morning
Come Back Home
Duck Tales (Yes – Duck Tales!!!)
Can’t Wait to be king.

It was a fun night and not too expensive. I enjoy seeing smaller bands. Need to see more of them!

From music to food. Indian success which is rare for me and this curry was tasty!
