Badly Drawn Boy @ Toffs
Damon Gough does a gig in a Fish and Chip Shop - inspired !
Location: 36 Muswell Hill Broadway, N10 3RT
Description: Damon Gough (aka Badly Drawn Boy) is a talented soul...the man who is rarely (if ever) seen without his renowned beanie on his head has been at it again.
Pop / Rock Stars these days can get pretty mediocre in regard to what they do and how they do it - but not our Damon - indeed... he recently hosted a gig in a chip shop - 'Toffs' to be exact.
And not only did he smother all those in attendance with some sublime acoustic batter - but he apparently took some time to get behind the counter and cook the chips! The man's a star!
