Last night was my best friend's birthday.
We went out for drinks and food at Left Bank, Souq al Bahar. I tried the Roast Pumpkin and Goat's Cheese salad and it was amazing! Then we headed down to Alpha to see the Loose Cannons.
I'd never actually heard any of their stuff before, but I can now call myself a fan. The performance had a lot of energy and they are just a really fun band. Lot's of fun to jump around to. And they wore these crazy top hats (which, unfortunately I did not manage to steal before I left...well, there's always next time)
You can check out their myspace here:

Alpha wasn't as busy as I thought it would be. It was actually pretty quiet compared to how it usually was. And Left Bank was nearly dead, I've never seen it so quiet. It could have been that everyone was at the Rugby tournament, but I'm going to go ahead and be the pessimist and say it was due to the economic crisis.
