I use most of these moves in my Guilty Pleasures routines, including torso exposure.
On Wednesday night, I forced myself off my sick bed to watch Poliça play London's Troxy. I sacrificed West Ham v Norwich the previous night to ensure my fitness. I wasn't going to miss this.
Propped up by every medicine known to man, I chose to stand towards the back of the hall, calmly nodding along with like an old sage.
A few things:
1) I've been to the Troxy before but not downstairs. The acoustics are great and even at the back the view isn't too shabby if you're tall enough. A great venue.
2) There were around 3,000 of us. I'm so pleased this band have a fanbase they deserve.
3) Dark Star was the crowd favourite.
4) Everyone took a photo of Channy's wall shadow.
5) Closing the encore with a cover of 'You Don't Own Me' was inspired. (See this performance from US TV last year)
6) Two drummers always trumps one.
8) There's some great photos at The Line Of Best Fit
9) Channy. Again.
10) Poliça are the best band in the world.
This looks good.

You need your kitchen.
The first we've heard from Embrace in over 7 years.
Given that their mid 2000-s audience was the anthemy singalong crowd it's no surprise that this song wanders over to Bastille-land towards the end when Danny's vocals come in. A slight cause for concern but I remain excited about the new album coming later this year.
Poliça's European tour has begun.
Was gonna send a picture of my frostbitten toes but once I took the picture I realized it wasn't that bad so watch our music video instead— POLIÇA (@thisispolica) January 23, 2014
From Seattle last November, this was the first pubic performance of Minor Alps, aka Juliana Hatfield and Matthew Caws. There's a great set of photos from this session on Flickr.
The best music Juliana has made since the exceptional How To Walk Away album in 2008.
